Poll: Should Ultrasounds Be Required Before Abortions?

Feb 24, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Patch.com

A weakened form of legislation requiring an ultrasound before an abortion is meandering its way through the Virginia Legislature, following outcry that the original bill would have required invasive ultrasounds at early stages of pregnancy.

NO! Women's private parts are private. Abortions are legal throughout the U.S. These Gray Old Penises are violating the constitution and common sense.

Obviously, @imagonaryfriend is a fembo. The fathers of the constitution never intended for 'rights' to be interpreted on this way. Developing life, is life, regardless of what secular spin you want to put on it. @imsginaryftiend and the ilk minded are constituents of the culture of death. and convenience.

if a woman chooses to keep her "private parts " private, then she might not need an abortion.

PLEASE. some one please tell me WHY abortion is a very popular form of birth control? it seems to me there are easier ways (pill , condom , shot , etc). seriously , why do some people want to give out abortions rather than preventing unwanted pregnancies? i don't want to hear all the rape incest and health reasons (which i do understand and can accept as legit) and i don't want name calling and all that bs. please enlighten me.

Pay attention! The GOP morons are attempting to outlaw birth control. No one gleefully chooses to have an abortion. Mother Nature also does it with miscarriages. Tune in to the personhood discussions. This is where birth control by the pill, shots, IUDs, etc. becomes illegal.

And if so, you would have to participate in gay sex, pull your puddin' or become celibate!

A woman cannot become gravid without a mans help!

Hi Bobby! Nice to see you, I hope you and yours are doing well. It's amazing -- not to mention appalling -- how many anti-choice males can't admit to their own responsibility in creating a pregnancy, but have to put all the blame on women.

Riiiiiiiiiight, so if a woman doesn't "keep her private parts private," she should be punished with a forced ultrasound if she doesn't want to stay pregnant. Got it.@@

<<WOW! There are a number of folks on here that should be thankful they wasn't aborted!!>>

The world would be a better place if you were aborted. Your dad wanked in a flower pot and grew a bloomin' idiot!

<<<What constitution right? There is no right!>>

There most certainly is a constitutional right to abortion.... see Roe v. Wade.

<<< NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO MURDER!!!!>>

Legal abortion is not murder. Fetal homicide (I know you will drag out this hoary old chestnut) is an illegal abortion. Killing a fetus against the will of the mother, is another way to put it.

<<It's funny how the left resorts to name calling and insults, which means they are losing an argument. >>

You reap what you sow!

You lost the argument when you claimed there is "no constitutional right to an abortion," goober!

You also lost the argument when you claimed that legal abortion is "murder." If legal abortion was murder, then you should do your civic duty and call the police and tell them murder is going on at the local Planned Parenthood. The penalties for making false police reports in your state are severe!

We're doing pretty good....

They only know two things... the blame game and not paying child support!

If it isn't medically necessary to use it then why should doctors be forced to buy and operate it?
Let's have doctors decide what tools to use in their surgical procedures instead of lawyers and activists.

Abortion is perfectly legal and women are not committing any crimes so there isn't any reason to treat them as criminals.

The constitution was intended to be a living document and not set in stone. And abortion was perfectly legal in early America.

Thank you for believing women and doctors ARE smart enough to make these decisions!

why do so many people like the idea of abortion? So many women go through with it and regret it afterwards. Once the fetus begins to grow there is a connection that never goes away, yet so many "humanitarians" talk of abortion as if they're removing a wart.

If there was really such a connection then abortion wouldn't be needed. And why should it matter if anyone regrets having an abortion? Lots of people regret getting married but that doesn't entitle them or anyone else to stop others from making that choice.

It is a matter of "CHOICE" allow women to choose their road-don't force them down yours. Life is full of regrets - many women have abortions & don't regret it yet the connection may remain. It is a case of just quit telling women what they can & can not do to & with their own bodies. Freedom to make a personal decision - without laws telling you what you "must" do.
