Ultrasounds~ The Window to the Womb~ and the Fight to Stop Them!

Pregnancy Resource Center Revealing life to save life.

Revealing life to save life.
From Pregnancy Resource Ministry

To date, tens of millions of preborn babies have been lost to abortion, and Focus on the Family has been laboring diligently to preserve the many other tiny lives that continue to hang in the balance. As we investigate ways to dissuade mothers-to-be from abortion, we've been extremely encouraged to learn that women who see their babies on ultrasound are far less likely to seek abortions than those without access to such an option.

In fact, a survey conducted by our Pregnancy Resource Ministry in the fall of 2003 revealed some astounding statistics. Out of 334 randomly selected pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) that were polled, 30 percent have ultrasound capability. These same centers reported that an average of 28 percent (and a median of 20 percent) of clients faced with a positive pregnancy test initially are abortion-minded. However, our survey results indicated that 79 percent of these clients (and a median of 90 percent ) decide to carry their babies to term after viewing an ultrasound. ...READ

Meanwhile in Jill Staneks Column this week, she speaks out about the recent increase in 3-D and 4-D ultrasound stores popping up everywhere and the pro-abortion lobbies attempt at shutting them down. After all we can't have pregnant woman and their friends and family looking at life-like pics and videos of the growing "BLOB OF TISSUE" now can we?
No longer will Babies first picture be the one taken in the hospital nursery or the one with the professional photographer that visits moms home, now a trip to the mall can show you a clear first picture of your bundle of Joy!

Elliot Spitzer NYS Attorney General, you know , the guy responsible for getting the credit card companies to stop paying for your cigarette purchases? Yea that Goober, he has already tried to shut down the "Window to the Womb!" , as did Illinois' AG Lisa Madigan. To Quote Jill the fight has taken a new turn, ...

Because keepsake ultrasound shops have operated largely unregulated to this point, pro-aborts are seeking not to standardize them, but to criminalize them through legislation, tacking on language they think will stop pregnancy care centers from using ultrasounds, too.
Mind you, there are no demonstrated risks from ultrasounds, which have been used in the medical field almost 50 years and have been studied ad nauseum.

So, in Illinois, fetusphobic state Rep. Rosemary Mulligan, who never saw a pro-life bill she didn't hiss at or a pro-abort bill she didn't rub her face in, with the encouragement of IIllinois Planned Parenthood, has introduced the toughest anti-ultrasound bill in the country to date, House Bill 2492. It would criminalize fetal ultrasound centers, and just to be sure, also prohibit doctors from writing referrals for keepsake ultrasounds.

One way to support the ultrasound movement is through Focus on the Family, which has launched an Option Ultrasound campaign.
