The Power of Real Choice

Planned Parenthood says they are all about giving women a choice in their care, but a recent video from Live Action has shown that they don’t do prenatal care, even though they claimed to and that ultrasounds are only used in abortions to see how far along the mother is. Even then, they rarely show women the ultrasound.

That’s probably because they know roughly 78% of women who see an ultrasound will keep their baby.

It’s hard to continue believing it’s a lump of tissue when you hear the heartbeat and see the baby’s head, arms, and legs. And Planned Parenthood says allowing women to see this is a “dangerous agenda.” To what? Their bottom line maybe. How could allowing a woman to see that the life inside her is really alive be a dangerous agenda?

My friend just found out she’s going to be a grandmother. When her son called her after their 10 week ultrasound, he said the baby was dancing. Dancing? I didn’t know a lump of tissue could dance.

No one walks around claiming to be pregnant with a fetus. We don’t give fetus showers, so why is a baby only a baby if the woman wants it? The want of the baby doesn’t change the developmental factors. It doesn’t change the fact that the baby has its own DNA, its own organs, and its own fingerprints and heartbeat.

Recently Gosnell, the story of the abortion doctor who murdered babies even after they were born shot to the bestseller list on Amazon. This both saddens me and gives me hope. It saddens me that a book like this even has to be written, but it gives me hope that more people are realizing abortion is not the answer and not the innocent procedure some people think. Perhaps one day soon, we will see the tide change.
