Doctor: There is inescapable schizophrenia when modern medicine works under an ethical construct in which a fetus is a patient only when the mother has conferred this status on him or her.

The trouble is that this status can be withdrawn. But how can one fetus at five months deserve abortion when an anemic fetus of the same age can undergo a blood transfusion in the next room?

Even abortion supporters are horrified by the possibility of abortions based only on the sex of the unborn child. But why is abortion for the most sexist of reasons any worse than abortion for any other reason?

Likewise, I am concerned by the degree to which modern obstetrics has become an impersonal techno-specialty dedicated to the concept of “the perfect baby.” Much of prenatal diagnosis is designed to detect fetal abnormalities early so that the choice of abortion is available. The majority of these abnormalities, such as Down syndrome, are not usually lethal.

Contracepting, pro-abort mom (surprisingly) finds out what she was missing

Caitlyn Beckner writes about how several months after her wedding she took a pregnancy test, fully expecting a negative result, since she was on the nearly (or so the manufacturer claims) “fail proof” method of birth control – the Mirena IUD. Instead, the test came back positive.

At this point, Beckner writes, she and her husband had myriad reasons for why it was the wrong time to have a baby: She had just started a new job, she and her husband only had one car and she rode her bike to work, there was the possibility of birth defects with a pregnancy while on the IUD, etc., etc.

Accordingly, when Beckner went in to her ObGyn’s office for an ultrasound, she told the technician that she was considering terminating the pregnancy. The technician turned the screen away and began the ultrasound.

“Then,” writes Beckner, “she chirped, ‘Well, you’re about 24 weeks along, dear, so it’s too late to terminate,’ as she swiveled the ultrasound screen toward me.”
“I let out some sort of squawk. I saw a baby hand on the screen. I gasped that I felt dizzy,” she says. “Then I passed out on the fu–ing table.”

78% of Pregnant Women Seeing an Ultrasound Reject Abortions

In most cases, when ultrasounds are performed, women are not shown the images unless they specifically ask to see them, and sometimes not even then. Numerous former abortion providers have attested to this, including Dr. Joseph Randall, who was quoted saying:

They [the women] are never allowed to look at the ultrasound because we knew that if they so much as heard the heart beat, they wouldn’t want to have an abortion.

Oklahoma legislators overide governor’s veto to pass two pro-life bills

Oklahoma City, OK (LifeNews.com) — The Oklahoma Senate today joined the state House in overriding vetoes by Governor Brad Henry of two pro-life bills that would help limit abortions. One measure allows women a chance to see a pre-abortion ultrasound of their unborn child while the other prevents wrongful death lawsuits.

The Republican-controlled Senate voted 36-12 Tuesday to override the Henry veto of a bill allowing women to see an ultrasound before having an abortion — which helps as many as 80 percent of women choose life.

The Senate voted on the same bipartisan margin to override Henry on a second bill that respects babies with disabilities by disallowing wrongful-life lawsuits that claim a baby would have been better off being aborted and that a physician should have suggested an abortion.

Both override votes received just enough votes, 36, to obtain the supermajority threshold necessary to overcome the governor’s vetoes. As a result of the votes, both pieces of legislation will now become law.
