When my birthmother was pregnant with me they did not have ultrasounds, but yet she knew that there was life growing inside of her. A life given by God. God is the creator of Life and Life should be respected and valued. In Matthew 10:31 it says, “Fear ye not, therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” To God, we are more valuable than the birds of the air.
In the world that we live in today medical technology keeps advancing. Today we have the ultrasound. Ultrasounds are used for many things. In today’s world when a woman is pregnant an ultrasound will show a picture of the baby and can also determine whether if the baby is a boy or girl. We also live in a world where babies are killed every minute through abortion. Planned Parenthood is against ultrasounds. Why? Because they are afraid that is they show the woman the ultrasound the woman will change her mind. Planned Parenthood likes women to think that it is not a baby but a blob of tissue.
Recently I read an article on Live Action News by Sarah Terzo about a woman who went to Planned Parenthood had an ultrasound, but Planned Parenthood would not allow her to see the ultrasound. Later the woman went to a Pregnancy Resource Center and was given a free ultrasound and when she saw the sonogram of her baby she changed her mind and decided to have the baby instead of having the abortion.
I am 100% Pro-Life with no exceptions. I believe that Planned Parenthood should be required to show their patients the ultrasound. With the world that we live in and in the Pro-Abortion movement, so many people think that it is just a blob of tissue and think that the fetus does not breathe until they are born. How do I know that? I have had that conversation with the pro-aborts. The baby does breathe in the womb. The Baby is using the lungs to breathe in amniotic fluid. Women need to know that it’s a baby and not a blob of tissue, and they need to know that the baby is alive in the womb.
I am thankful that we have the technology of ultrasound. When a woman sees the ultrasound, she will most likely change her mind and have the baby. Ultrasounds changes minds and saves lives.
