I think that she should be aware of the procedure, what exactly is being removed from her body, and the risks of the procedure. I would be more in favor of a session with a counselor, but then one must worry about bias, either way, towards abortion on the part of the counselor. Women seeking abortion are very vulnerable and acting pretty much on just emotion. Not a good place to be when making such a huge decision.
I agree with you regarding the ultrasound issue.
I'm all for making the woman see an ultrasound of her baby.
I did a quick google search on informed consent for abortions.
