Planned Parenthood: Women Shouldn’t See Ultrasound Screen

“Abortion is a hard enough thing for any woman to decide without the torture of seeing the baby on an ultrasound screen.”

Dr. L. Lacroix, Planned Parenthood, Kelowna, B.C

Kelowna Daily August 24, 2000

Planned Parenthood opposes laws that would allow a woman to see her baby on the ultrasound screen. Even when the proposed law would  not mandate that she must see her baby, but only that she be offered the opportunity to do so, Planned Parenthood opposes it.

Is it better for a woman to be in the dark about her aborted baby, and then find out afterwards that her baby was fully formed, or is it better for her to know the facts so that she can make an informed decision?

And who should make this decision for her? She or the clinic workers who get paid to convince her to abort?

    “Abortion is a hard enough thing for any woman to decide without the torture of seeing the baby on an ultrasound screen.”
    So, Planned Parenthood is fully aware what they do is torture. Yet they have a convenient way of stopping short of fully admitting it. If a woman merely viewing an ultrasound is torture, then..

    ..What is NOT being shown an ultrasound, learning of their babies development AFTER, and dealing with a potential lifetime of guilt and regret? …TORTURE!

    ..What is being a developing or fully developed “fetus” (BABY!) – with a beating heart and the ability TO FEEL PAIN – and you are violently murdered in your womb? …TORTURE!

    If you have any doubt that ABORTION IS TORTURE… PLEASE READ BELOW.
    These grotesque, gut-wrenching, heart-breaking ways in which monsters slaughter the innocent.. are “straight from the horses mouth”… detailing each method of murder, the following descriptions were found on prochoice.com:

    [ "SUCTION ABORTION: a suction tube is inserted through the dilated cervix into the womb. A powerful vacuum tears the placenta from the uterus and dismembers the body of the developing child, sucking the pieces into an attached jar.
    ...
    "DILATION AND CURETTAGE: the doctor inserts a curette, a loop-shaped steel knife, into the womb through the dilated cervix. As the curette scrapes the wall of the uterus, the baby is cut into pieces. the abortionist must reassemble the body parts to make sure the uterus is empty.
    ...
    DILATION AND EVACUATION (D&E): forceps must be used to grasp the baby's body because of the child's advanced development. The baby is dismembered as the abortionist twists and tears the parts of the body and slices the placenta away from the uterus. Bleeding is profuse. Although relatively safe for the mother, the procedure is devastating to the hospital staff and many doctors refuse to do advanced D&E abortions.
    ...
    SALT POISONING (SALINE INJECTION): "Salting out" is the second most common method of inducing abortion and is usually used after sixteen weeks. The doctor inserts a long needle through the mother's abdomen and injects a saline solution into the sac of amniotic fluid surrounding the baby. The baby is poisoned by swallowing the salt and his skin is completely burned away. It takes about an hour to kill the baby. After the child dies, the mother goes into labor and expels the dead baby. Saline injections have been outlawed in some countries because of the risks to the mother, which can include lung and kidney damage if the salt finds its way into her bloodstream. In spite of the horrible burning effect, some babies have survived "salting out" and been born alive.
    ...
    HYSTEROTOMY; Similar to the Cesarean section, the hysterotomy abortion is a surgical procedure whereby the baby is removed from the mother's womb and allowed to die by neglect or killed by a direct act. This method offers the highest risk to the mother and produces the most number of live births. Hysterotomy is used only for late term pregnancies, and is sometimes used if the salt poisoning or prostaglandin abortion has failed.
    ...
    PROSTAGLANDIN ABORTION; Prostaglandin is a chemical hormone which induces violent labor and premature birth when injected into the amniotic sac. Since prostaglandin results in an unusually high percentage of live births, salt, urea or another toxin is often injected first. The risk of live birth from a prostaglandin abortion is so great that its use is recommended only in hospitals with neonatal intensive care units. The risk to the mother is also greater with the use of prostaglandin; complications can include cardiac arrest." ]
