ok so i know i've posted before on this subject but it is one of those issues that doesnt go away for me. i lay awake at night & cry thinking of the misinformed young girls who murder their babies without realizing that one day they will have to face that decision, look that decision in the eye, and deal with it within themselves. i can not imagine the trama that will be brought to them if they have any type of conscious or knowledge of God.
it seems the "pro-murder your child in the womb community" will lie, cheat & steal to keep young ignorant women uniformed and to keep the option to forever cause heartache for them in place.
here in Virginia, there has been a law passing....yes PASSING through our General Assembly that states that it will be mandatory for all women or little girls who try to play like women to undergo an ultrasound before a woman or woman-child can murder her unborn baby. i cant understand for the life of me why that would be a problem. isnt it better to be fully informed of your decision before you make it?
now the pro-kill your unborn baby side of this issue is saying that the bill calls for transvaginal ultrasounds. now i may be ignorant or missing something, but no where in the bill does it call for a transvaginal ultrasound. It calls for an "ultrasound".
here is a link to the bill as it was introduced on January 11, 2012
now we are hearing in the news that those crazy pro-lifers (yep that be me!) want women to have to undergo evasive procedures that are likened to rape. this is what i cant understand. even if the requirement was for a transvaginal, with the prob put up in there type ultrasound, would that be more invasive then having a vacuum put up there and a defenseless, innocent baby ripped from their warm, home - the safest place they will ever know & ripped limb from limb? that's not invasive but a prob that tells you that "yes there really is a baby in there, with a beating heart, a soul, a future, Virginia" is invasive. i'm not digging the logic in that.
it boils down to choice. the abortionist want to keep women uninformed as they are making millions and millions of dollars on murder in this country. if the women are uninformed then they dont really feel they have a choice. in actuality...which side offers choice? choice for all involved? surely not the abortionist.
and our Governor....Bob McDonnell...i have lost so much respect for him. He, with the White House in his sights as he is being considered to run for VP, has backed down from this fight. Our "Pro-Life" governor put his political ambitions ahead of standing up for life. all he had to do was stand behind the bill & sign it. it was set to pass. now it is being "re-written". what a joke. i am disappointed. i have no other way to look at this situation with Governor McDonnell. I did call his office and offer my opinion. I have written emails.
and on another note concerning this matter, now it's coming out how caring Planned Parenthood really is...how they generally give ultrasounds before abortions anyway. Really? so if that's the case why are we having this fight to begin with? something doesnt wash. and if Planned Parenthood & the Pro-murder your yet to be born baby movement really believes what they state - that they want the amount of abortions to be reduced also as they are not good for women - then why would more information be a problem. sounds fishy to me.
Planned Parenthood is an evil organization. i despise them. i curse them everytime we ride by their offices. i hope they lose all funding and go out of business everywhere. i pray for their buildings to burn and their doctors to lose their licenses. and believe me...i am being nice in expressing what i really wish for them.
anyway, this is an ultrasound picture of twins at 12weeks 2 days gestation. most pregnancies are terminated between 6 & 12 weeks. how can seeing this be bad for a woman? i could cry looking at it & these arent my babies nor an ultrasound on me. and the really sad thing is...a woman isnt made to look at the ultrasound. she doesnt have to look at the pictures. she just has to be informed that there is a living baby in her womb.
to be fair here is Gov. McDonnell's statement concerning his withdrawal of support:
Statement of Governor Bob McDonnell on SB 484
RICHMOND – Governor Bob McDonnell issued the following statement today regarding SB 484, a bill before the General Assembly that would require an ultrasound prior to an abortion being performed.
“I am pro-life. I believe deeply in the sanctity of innocent human life and believe governments have a duty to protect human life. The more our society embraces a culture of life for all people, the better country we will have. Over the course of my 20-year career in elected office, I have been glad to play a leading role in putting in place common-sense policies that protect and defend innocent human life in the Commonwealth. One of those bills was Virginia’s informed consent statute, of which I was the chief patron in the House of Delegates, finally seeing its passage in 2001. This session, the General Assembly is now considering amending this informed consent statute to include a requirement that any woman seeking an abortion receive an ultrasound in order to establish the gestational age for appropriate medical purposes, and to offer a woman the opportunity to voluntarily review that ultrasound prior to giving her legal informed consent to abortion.
Over the past days I have discussed the specific language of the proposed legislation with other governors, physicians, attorneys, legislators, advocacy groups, and citizens. It is apparent that several amendments to the proposed legislation are needed to address various medical and legal issues which have arisen. It is clear that in the majority of cases, a routine external, transabdominal ultrasound is sufficient to meet the bills stated purpose, that is, to determine gestational age. I have come to understand that the medical practice and standard of care currently guide physicians to use other procedures to find the gestational age of the child, when abdominal ultrasounds cannot do so. Determining gestational age is essential for legal reasons, to know the trimester of the pregnancy in order to comply with the law, and for medical reasons as well.
Thus, having looked at the current proposal, I believe there is no need to direct by statute that further invasive ultrasound procedures be done. Mandating an invasive procedure in order to give informed consent is not a proper role for the state. No person should be directed to undergo an invasive procedure by the state, without their consent, as a precondition to another medical procedure.
For this reason, I have recommended to the General Assembly a series of amendments to this bill. I am requesting that the General Assembly amend this bill to explicitly state that no woman in Virginia will have to undergo a transvaginal ultrasound involuntarily. I am asking the General Assembly to state in this legislation that only a transabdominal, or external, ultrasound will be required to satisfy the requirements to determine gestational age. Should a doctor determine that another form of ultrasound may be necessary to provide the necessary images and information that will be an issue for the doctor and the patient. The government will have no role in that medical decision.
I have requested other amendments that help clarify the purposes of the bill and reflect a better understanding of prevailing medical practices. It is my hope that the members of the General Assembly will act favorably upon these recommendations from our office. We will await their action prior to making any further comments on this matter.”
