Illinois To Ban Ultrasounds? By Bryan Preston
If you advocate banning partial birth abortion, a procedure so gruesome that it belongs in a Quentin Tarantino movie, the left and some libertarians will castigate you for infringing on a woman’s right to choose, getting between a woman and her doctor, etc.
Advocate banning ultrasounds, which are largely harmless and show parents their yet to be born children? You get your law passed (in the House) with bi-partisan support, at least in Illinois.
Pro-abortion forces won a victory in the Illinois House Wednesday as State Rep. Rosemary Mulligan (R-Park Ridge) successfully passed HB 2492 which would make it a criminal offense for an ultrasound to be administered without a doctor’s order.
Mulligan said that Planned Parenthood and the Illinois State Medical Society encouraged her to sponsor the legislation because there was a concern about long exposure of fetuses to ultrasound waves.
“There’s a new little industry that does ultrasound videos on babies before they’re born for entertainment purposes,” the Cook County legislator told her colleagues. “There is concern about the neurological development with long exposure.”
Why would Planned Parenthood, an industry leader that aborts children and makes millions doing it, care a bit about the safety of children in the womb? Simple. It’s hard to see an ultrasound and remain pro-choice. Once you see that your potentially aborted wad of tissues has fingers, toes, eyes and a nose and all the rest it becomes a person in your mind, and that makes you less likely to become one of Margaret Sanger’s company’s customers.
Abortion is a volume business, after all. Gotta keep that cash flow out of the red.
