Not a bad idea

I don’t see life as something to be taken lightly.  I have 2 kids and one on the way, and I’ve had my share of ultrasounds.  This is a bit of legislation I that I think is pretty good.  Having an ultrasound 24 hours before an abortion I think might cause some people to see and realize it is a baby.  Maybe adoption, or even keeping the baby will be a more viable option to these people, who have seen abortion as a last resort, when they see that baby.

Planned Parenthood doesn’t like it:

Anita Fream, chief executive officer at Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma, says the measure will add an extra expense and one more barrier to access for women seeking abortion services.

My opinion is it’s 24 hours, it’s only one ultrasound, and it may have the potential to save a life.  I think it’s worth it.

Well Said.

I've had three kids now...well, okay, my wife did most of the work....still....it's difficult to view a fetus through ultra sound imagery and not see a bona fide, true to life human being.

BTW, you don't look like a geek.
