Over the last few days, Kelly at Blog.Bioethics.net has been blogging about House Bill 3355, passed in the South Carolina, which will require the abortion doctor to review the ultrasound with the woman or girl at least one hour before the abortion. The woman has to sign a statement that she’s received the informed consent and a review of the US.
Kelly and several of the other visitors at the site are concerned that the woman who has made the choice to have an abortion is being unduly influenced, browbeaten and/or the target of images capable of emotional blackmail. (Words from the bloggers are in italics.)
Oh, and “a guy can go around and have sex until the cows come home,he’s never going to have to deal with the emotional decisions attached to an unwanted pregnancy.”
But, somehow, it’s no big deal, anyway.
The conversation is the same one we’ve been having for 30 plus years, but you might want to take a look.
