The Ultrasound Generation

As Jen noted in a comment below, the pro-life movement is being supported by the technology of ultrasound.  In the current issue of The Weekly Standard, David Daleiden and Jon A. Shields write an article entitled Mugged by Ultrasound.  In sum, many of the conversions from pro-abortion to pro-life are being aided and abetted by ultrasound imagery.  Going back as far as Bernard Nathanson, a founding father of the abortion business, images of the unborn child undergoing the trauma of death and dismemberment is turning people toward life. 

Since the 1970s, second trimester abortions are primarily performed by using the D&E (dilation and extraction) procedure.  Because this procedure involves dismembering the unborn child and because the entire process can be viewed on ultrasound imagery, it is hard to avoid the truth that a living human being is being killed.

So, what is the response of the pro-aborts?  Regulate the crisis pregnancy centers that are using ultrasound to convince women to keep their children.  On Raymond Arroyo's "The World Over" show last Friday night, Peggy Harshorn, the president of Heartbeat International, a network of crisis pregnancy centers spoke to this issue.  She said that the centers are defending themselves from an onslaught of legislation and proposed legislation to limit the use of ultrasound by these centers.   Congress was considering passing restrictions on the use of this technology, but got sidetracked by the health care legislation.  Local and city governments, however, including Baltimore are passing restrictive laws.

It is another example of the perverse minds involved in the abortion world.  Under the guise of protecting women, they are doing everything in their power to keep women from knowing the truth of their situation.  But, after seeing the thousands of youthful faces at the March for Life, I can't help but believe that the era of this duplicity is coming to an end.  These kids know that their lives were on the line and they may not see protecting "reproductive freedom" as a reasonable rationale for killing babies.
