…about the latest fake moral panic ginned by Murder Inc. in order to keep women in the dark (namely, the pretense that an ultrasound is like rape):

Two points:

1) How is a transvaginal ultrasound probe/wand more invasive than the instruments of abortion, e.g., scalpels, forceps and vacuum hoses that dismember the child and tear him/her into small enough pieces for removal from the womb?

2) When performing an abortion, what procedure is completed immediately prior to the abortion? An ultrasound in order to determine the gestational age of the child and his/her location in the womb.

My wife used to run the OB/GYN clinic at the US Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, Japan. As an overseas US military hospital, the Navy was not permitted to perform abortions. If a woman wanted an abortion, the doctor or nurse was required to refer the woman to several Japanese facilities. My wife told me many, many times that if the woman seeking the abortion would permit my wife to complete an ultrasound, the woman would almost always not go through with the abortion. If, on the other hand, the woman refused the ultrasound, she would almost always return to the clinic distraught and often in tears, saying something along the lines of, “I didn’t know, I didn’t know . . . “

Darkness hates light, and Planned Parenthood is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Kingdom of Darkness.
