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

Posted on 01/12/2012 11:12:42 AM PST by Kaslin

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.

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.

Point taken, but I think you got my point.

Indeed; abortionists are not ‘honorable’, they’re serial killers protected by the twisted legal system under which we now live.

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.

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

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”
