I see a whole lot of people talking very eloquently about the physical and biological aspects of abortion.

If a doctor were to determine that there was a high degree of a particular risk directed related to THAT pregnancy, SURE I would.

Very good points you make, and no, not because they "jibe" with mine.

"And to touch on the idea that kids should or shouldnt see the aborted materials....children are naturrally pro-babies. Unless they have an emotional imbalance, then kids dont like to see other kids hurt. That is just a fact. My 4 year old neice asked once "why would anyone want to do that to a little baby?" well, there ya have it. A 4 year old gets THAT!"

Your 4 year old niece can say anything she wants but that does not mean she understands anything that adults or even that other children go through. Children tease and hurt each other all the time, many do want to see others hurt and that doe not mean they have a chemical imbalance.

Also, I was not Pro baby when I was a child.

I dont know about anyone else, but frankly I did a HECK of a lot more research before taking RU486, etc than I did before giving birth to my daughter. And to date, I still have more information on RU486, than I do on a c-section.

If I had been forced to watch a film of a tubal ligation before having it, I might not have gone ahead and had one.


If I had been forced to watch a film of wisdom tooth extraction, I might have waited until the surgery was absolutely needed and on my dime instead of on my parents' health insurance.


If I had been forced to watch a film of my LEEP, I might have insisted instead on cryosurgery, which was not the best way to take care of my cervix.


If a patient WANTS to see it, I see no problem with offering. But mandating that someone must watch a procedure before it is performed might make it hard to get necessary procedures performed. And mandating that an abortion must be watched on film is discriminatory medical practice. If it is going to be required for this procedure, the only fair thing is to make ALL patients watch a film of their procedure, even children.

>I went to the dentist the other day to get veneers and I was shown a video!<


Comparing veneers to any invasive procedure is ridiculous.
