A pro-life website received the following testimony:
“I have one child (2 years old). He is my heart and soul. I contemplated having an abortion with him. I went all the way to the clinic and proceeded with the preparations. However, I when I [sic] was given the sonogram, I asked to see my child living and breathing through me. I was 11 weeks pregnant. I saw my son on the screen kicking and moving his arms! I could not believe it. At that point, I asked for my money back (I could only get a portion), and I left that clinic and did not look back.”
While Planned Parenthood has been promoting a study which purports to show that seeing an ultrasound image does not influence women’s decisions of whether or not to abort (conducted based on the records from one abortion clinic by researchers who likely never actually set foot in that clinic to observe what was going on), one has to wonder why, if ultrasound viewing really has no impact on a woman’s decision, pro-choice groups oppose these laws so strenuously and spent tens of thousands of dollars fighting them in court.
