He's pro choice. I have no worries he will continue to uphold women's reproductive choice and keep this country truly FREE for women as well as men.

Although as I sit and watch the once great state of Ohio crumble under his, um, leadership, I have to say that I am glad he signed this bill.

The Great Crumble started under previous leadership. Ted hasn't been there that long, LOL! The DH and I have watched so many companies (Little Tikes, Rubbermaid, Step 2,et al) outsource all of their machining to Mexico and China during Bush's Reign of Terror. It's so nice to have our entire economy tied to one who's poised to crumble under its own weight.

"The bill requires doctors to lprovide a woman the opportunity to view the active ultrasound image of her unborn child and an opportunity to receive a physical picture of the ultrasound image."

Were women previously denied the option to view the ultrasound? I have never heard of any such case where a woman asks for and is refused the ability to view her ultrasound. Never.

That is a great question.

I agree with you 100%. This whole thing seems kind of like a moot point.

From my own experience, I was not only able to view the whole ultrasound, but the tech also printed a copy of the ultrasound photo out for me. And yes, *gasp* this was at a so-called "abortion mill".

**Forgive the snark--it was directed at the term "abortion mill" and not you MM. It's been a long day :-)

"The bill requires doctors to lprovide a woman the opportunity to view the active ultrasound image of her unborn child and an opportunity to receive a physical picture of the ultrasound image."

"Hopefully, by requiring abortionists to show the ultrasound (much like they would an x-ray in any other medical procedure) it will help reduce abortions further."

These two statements do not mean the same thing. Unless you have data to show that the doctors were actively denying women the ability to have an ultrasound, this law doesn't require doctors to show anything to their patients that their patients don't want to see.

The way I understand it, abortion doctors usually have to do an ultrasound anyway to confirm length of gestation and the corresponding appropriate procedure to terminate the pregnancy.

I will agree with you that it all started under Taft - a man who should never have held the office.


LOL, I think it is a joke to blame Bush for a crumble of factory jobs when that actually started under Clinton, thanks to the North American Free Trade Act!

Due to the fact that after the unemployment benefits end, those people are off the "official tally", LOL. How about the number full-time jobs were transitioned into part-time jobs without benefits?
But we could go round and round. You support Bush. I don't. And I don't have enough time in the day to debate it. So you go ahead and have the last say about it. Different debate and I'm busy trying to make money, LOL!

"Thankfully, this bill is one more step in the right direction in reducing, if not ending, abortion."


How does it end the NEED for an abortion? I consider it cruel what they are requiring. What if she is making the decision based on medical reasons. Should she feel bad about it?
