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.
Seeing a baby after abortion is worse.
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.
But abortion isn’t abhorrent? Guess I’m just terribly confused.
Is it wrong for me to think “God, please SMITE them”?
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”.
Planned Parenthood is what is Abhorrent.
“Seeing a baby after abortion is worse.”
...and worse yet is the woman who realizes that after the fact.
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.
Baby killers are abhorrent!
Planned Parenthood is abhorrent. And so is Cecile Richards, the prez of PP. They makes lots of money off of women’s suffering and confusion.
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" isnt abhorrent? Guess Im just terribly confused.
God help us...
All kinds of things are illegal in which nobody even gets hurt.
THAT’s the POINT!!
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.”

Planned Non-Parenthood: Abortion is Beautiful
Truth in advertising.
If I go to a doctor with a perfectly healthy leg and demand to have it removed, no ethical doctor will do it. How is abortion different?
I’m sure they feel the same way about girls showing a picture ID with their age.
Ah ha! So, they admit that blob of cells is a baby. As in a small sized human with the right to life.
