Abortion textbook recommends ultrasounds be done in clinics

A textbook on how to perform abortions, written by a late term abortionist who has been practicing for decades, talks about how important ultrasounds are in abortion care

“Sonographic examination is invaluable for a variety of reasons. Aside from more accurate assessment of fetal age than other methods, it provides information concerning fetal presentation, placental location, multiple gestations, and such unexpected conditions as hydatidiform mole, myomas, uterine structural abnormalities, and extrauterine lesions (e.g. ovarian cysts). Many of these data can affect clinical management in important ways.

While ultrasound is not perfect, it appears to be considerably more accurate for determining fetal age than are menstrual dates and even a careful examination by an experienced physician.”

Warren M Hern Abortion Practice (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: JB Lippincott Company, 1990)  70
