Planned Parenthood: Seeing a Baby Before Abortion is Abhorrent
Townhall.com ^ | January 12, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

The taxpayer funded abortion factory Planned Parenthood making millions in profits by preying on women, specifically minorities and teenagers, seems to think a woman seeing her baby before making the ultimate decision to end her pregnancy is an "abhorrent" standard. The classification comes after a federal appeals court upheld a law that requires doctors to give women considering an abortion an ultrasound and full information before performing the procedure.


Writing for the court, Chief Judge Edith Jones was frank about the other side’s failure “to demonstrate constitutional flaws with the law,” which requires women to have a sonogram 24 hours before an abortion. Judge Jones said the state has “legitimate interests in protecting the potential life within her.”


“Denying her up-to-date medical information,” Jones wrote, “is more of an abuse to her ability to decide than providing the information.”

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement that the Fifth Circuit ruling “sets an abhorrent precedent” as other states prepared to consider similar laws to help women receive factual information about their baby and his or her development before making a life or death decision to have an abortion.


But why is Cecile Richards so against giving women ultrasounds?


What Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council finds abhorrent is Richards’ reaction to the ruling.

“Her organization recognizes that the biggest weapon in the abortion debate is the ultrasound machine,” Perkins said. “For thousands of women, this window into the womb is the only persuasion they need to reconsider abortion. And, as Richards’s group has proved, pro-abortion activists will do everything in their power to stop mothers from recognizing the personhood of their unborn babies.”

“This is a country where Americans can’t even play paintball without signing a paper acknowledging the risks. How does it possibly make sense to let women undergo a major surgical procedure without giving them all the facts?” he said. “The media may be calling it a victory for pro-lifers, but in this case, women and their babies are the real winners. While Texans still have the right to “choose,” at least they’ll finally know what they’re choosing.”

Perkins is right, ultrasounds decrease the chance of a woman having an abortion significantly. Abortion is big business for Planned Parenthood and the acceptance of a child in the womb as life, viewable through an ultrasound, threatens them. Not to mention it is really disgusting the president of a taxpayer funded organization, views a mother's ability to see and hear her baby's beating heart before choosing to take it away as "abhorrent."

Ultrasounds are the single easiest way to prevent abortion. You can donate here to make sure crisis pregnancy centers have the equipment they need to save babies.

I would think it would be much more “Abhorrent” to find out later what you did was murder.Most who abort their first pregnancy will go on to have later children.To have been told it was just a mass of cells and believe it then see an ultrasound of the new baby at the same gestation age to me would be awful.It is only right that women see who they are about to execute.

There is NO difference between Planned Parenthood protesting the use of sonograms for the mother and the COAL INDUSTRY protesting the closing of coal-fired power plants.
It is about the MONEY..period!!
Planned Parenthood appears to regard the “unborn” as worth no more than a “lump of coal”.

At what point in Gestation does the Fetus (baby) feel pain?

We should be attacking the Pro Choicers by pointing out they have no problem torturing the Fetus (baby) to death during an Abortion procedure.

After all, the Left spent years attacking the Bush Administration for Waterboarding a few Terrorist Murderers who never died from having it done.

Just another thing to think about.

I know I'm preaching to the choir, but lets dispense with the euphemism and describe it more accurately:

But "tearing an unborn child limb-from-limb" isn’t abhorrent? Guess I’m just terribly confused.

Yes, they lie to the women, and they don’t want them to know the truth, that abortion is murder.

They’re truly working for the prince of darkness.

Before the abortion, he says it’s not big deal, “just a mass of cells”, you’ll be better off aborting it.

After the abortion, for the rest of their lives, he whispers “God will never forgive you for what you did.”

The coal industry protests the attacks on it on the grounds of preservation of property rights, of protection of free markets, of the inviolable freedom to pursue ones business, on the fact that coal provides electricity which increases the standard of living of all human beings, saves lives, helps every fact of life from medicine to food production.

Planned Parenthood wants to unconstitutionally restrict the rights of states to pass laws, and in the process increase the number of small human beings being hacked to death alive and thrown into the trash. But please, feel free to disagree and explain how there is really NO difference between the 2.

It is about the MONEY..period!!

If you think PP is about money, you have misunderstood completely the role abortion plays in the liberal playbook.

Gee I guess it’s more abhorrent see an ultrasound image of the baby than watching a (doctor?) suck out the brains while it is not yet fully delivered.

Oh wait, we are not allowed to see pictures of these caring (doctors?) sucking out the brains because it may seem like what it really is, was and always will be MURDER.

And Mr. & Mrs. Mitt Romney made at least one — perhaps more — charitable donation to this group. And, by including them as official participants in his Mass. healthcare plan, he is responsible for adding even more money to their coffers. Killing babies is very lucrative, and his endorsement only could’ve helped their disgusting efforts.

To: Kaslin; All
To see a live image of a child in the womb challenges the mother to rethink a position that represents the status quo among those who are in power today.

The fact that counterfeit ideas about life and its meaning have been promoted for several decades makes the decision for abortion a difficult one.

Many of us struggle with the questions, "What is my purpose for being?" and "Am I fulfilling the 'purpose' of my being?"

During the 2008 Presidental campaign, seeing little Trig Palin on television, a compelling thought came to mind:

"This child is achieving a purpose which far exceeds anything many of us will work for decades to achieve."

Without saying a word, but just by being, his bright little face rebukes and challenges. Carried by a proud and loving father, a mother, a sister or brother, he confronted in a way that no pious words from a pulpit or podium can confront.

And, that is why they hated the mother.

During the Christmas Holy Days (holidays), there are reminders of another innocent and guileless child whose very birth challenged a King, and whose simple message as an adult could not be tolerated, because it challenged the status quo and power structure of His day. And they hated him. Today, in America, His name simply must be removed from the title of the season.

A 240-pound quarterback Heisman Trophy winner publicly thanks his mother for allowing him life. From that point on, as a highly visibly college and pro player, he publicly acknowledges his Creator, and their attempts at ridicule are shrill and hateful. What he represents is "abhorrent," because he is a living symbol for what may be millions of outstanding athletes, world leaders, healing physicians, discoverers, musicians and artists whose lives were interrupted before they began.

Allow technology to reveal that a child is being created inside the womb, and those who have foisted the idea of a mere bit of flesh being called a "fetus" cannot contain their anger. To them, such knowledge is "abhorrent" because it exposes the fraudulent idea they call "choice."

Well and truly stated.

The father of lies, a murderer from the start, gets most angry when his murder agenda is exposed, so he raises the noise level with his lies spewed from his servants, be they willing or duped servants. As you so eloquently expressed, Trig and Tim refute the lies just by living in plain sight!

I’m sorry but your evil “COAL INDUSTRY” provides me a service, which is having electricity at a reasonable price, and I APPRECIATE that from them.

The abortion industry does not provide me a service, unless one considers the secret killing of what would be my grandchild, a service.

Well, first of all, the alive child in the womb is not an appendage of the mother, so the mother demanding a hit on the other human being is not anywhere near the same as asking for your own appendage to be removed.

But why is Cecile Richards so against giving women ultrasounds?

Yet, abortionists testifying before Congress against laws requiring them to render medical care to infants who survive the abortion attempt have stated that they object to such laws on the basis that a woman coming in for an abortion has a right to a dead fetus. So, while they hide from their clients the fact that abortion results in a dead baby, they also stand up for those clients' "right" to have a dead baby.

It's another great example of the way liberal "thought" ties one's brain into knots.

Personally, I think they should be required not only to show an accurate sonogram before the abortion, but to show their clients the dead baby afterwords.

The more modern sonogram machines can make colorized movies that the patient can take home on a DVD. Those are pretty lucrative if you have the volume, and it’s perfectly ethical. Abortionists don’t pursue better avenues because they can’t, it’s because they won’t. They are considered the scum of medicine even by other doctors.

You are not kidding at all about that.A friend of mine worked in hospice for a few years and said they were starting to have women who would say they wanted to talk to someone but wasn’t sure if a priest/pastor could help them.Come to find out that they had aborted a baby.My friend said it was try hard to hear them say “God will not forgive me for what I did” while knowing their time was very short.

They have so far not pin pointed exactly the point where that happens.Knowing that the nerves and spinal column are one of the first things that does develop and that a baby has about 3X the nerve endings that it will end of being born with before 7 months gestation IMHO it is much sooner than anyone would like to admit.My uneducated non medical school opinion would be at about 5 weeks gestation.
“The fifth week of pregnancy, or the third week after conception, marks the beginning of the embryonic period. This is when the baby’s brain, spinal cord, heart and other organs begin to form”
