Anti-abortion activists are marching on Washington today to protest ‘Roe v. Wade,’ the 38-year old Supreme Court decision that legalized choice. Abortion and its attendant laws remain among the nation’s most divisive, complex disputes. But the conservative effort to guilt women out of having them by enforcing ultrasounds is one of the most often overlooked and morally worrisome controversies of the lot.
Today’s annual “March for Life” in DC comes as newly empowered Republicans prepare a wave of laws aimed at restricting abortions, including stricter regulations for minors and stiffer prohibitions on abortions after 20 weeks. And then there are the ultrasound requirements, which would encourage or sometimes require doctors to show their patient an image of the fetus and point out any formed anatomy.
Twenty states already have such laws, with Kentucky, whose Senate approved an ultrasound law earlier this month, looking like the latest addition to the roster.
