On March 21st, Governor Ted Strickland signed into lawa, H.B. 314, the Ultrasound Viewing Option Bill.

I believe that some women will choose to view the ultrasound - even take the printed picture offered, and if waiting to deliberate on whether to have an abortion or not, will take the images into consideration and choose not to abort.

I was shown the ultrasound and I have a copy of the photo and I still went on to terminate. However, my situation aside, before this bill was signed women were able to view the ultrasound and have a copy of the picture if they wanted. They just had to ask. And guess what...women still had abortions. Nothing significant is really changed by this bill.

I won't comment on your personal exprience.


As for the bill - might there be women who don't know that they CAN view the ultrasound and recieve a photo for their deliberations?

Well, if there are women who don't know they can ask to see part of their medical procedure, then IMO, they certainly are not smart enough to be raising children.

>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!

The whole point I was trying to make is that it is not ONE president's doing - the economy of Ohio.

>Did it ever occur to you that if it is due to fetal anomolies = that seeing the baby first and confirming those anomolies may help a woman live better with her choice to abort?

With that - then too at that early stage would it not be hard to detect fetal anomolies period?

"Again, why does it bother you so badly? It is simply the offering of factual information via viewing option of their 'actual and real' pregnancy and the unborn that they are considering terminating. If they choose to not abort due to those pics, I would think that one PC who claims women should be fully informed about the options they have - would support this simply measure."

Um, I never said it bothers me because it doesn't.

Sure, I'm all for women being able to see their ultrasounds if they want to...you know, just how they can right now and could before this bill was signed. What annoys me is that this bill really doesnt change a thing, so it's kind of a waste of time---time the government could spend on much more productive things.
