Why I Didn’t have an Abortion

This post gives some encouraging news from Britain on the campaign against abortion. It comes from London’s Daily Mail–a paper which, with the Daily Telegraph is most consistently anti-abortion.

The campaign against abortion in Britain isn’t likely to be won in the courts, parliament or most of the mainstream media any time soon, but signs are the same as here, that a younger generation of doctors and nurses are simply turning against the horrific practice, and gradually the general attitude is shifting against abortion. Time will tell.

    I’ve always said the main reason is the general use of ultrasound photographs. You can’t look at them and say they’re just a lump of tissue. Attitudes are changing fast.

    I agree. It’s almost impossible to oppose life after seeing an ultrasound, or to support abortion after seeing a dismembered baby.Small wonder in popular culture we rarely see images of either.

    Interestingly, the “right” to abortion was never about women’s “rights,” but was always about the “right” of doctors to perform abortions — to keep abortionists out of prison. Now that the doctors are not wanting to exercise this “right,” we’ll find out that freedom of choice is a one-way ratchet.

    I’d like to remind y’all that sometimes dr’s have to perform the same procedures due to incomplete miscarriages. A very pro-life activist friend of mine had this situation, and was extremely upset that it just named the abortion procedure on her insurance forms without any distinction to indicate whether it was elective or emergency due to incomplete miscarriage.No decent dr or nurse chooses to get involved in elective abortion. This type of practice is relegated to the losers who can barely hold on to their licenses and that’s the only practice they can get.
