The abortion debate: Ultrasound technology changed everything

May 25, 2019 By Patricia McCarthy

For those of us of a certain age who were brought up in non-religious or nominally religious homes, abortion was, when we were young, something no one spoke about. By the 1960s, we may have heard about high school friends who went to Mexico for abortions that were illegal here.  Such gossip was hushed, and few of us knew what an abortion entailed or had any sense of the gravity of the procedure.  Our contemporaries who had been raised in religious homes never talked about such things, so if they had an opinion on the topic, they did not share it.

By the time we reached adulthood, we were "pro-choice" because that was the thing to be.  Wasn't everyone pro-choice?  What did that mean?  It meant ending an unwanted pregnancy the moment it was realized.  No one then ever considered the possibility or option of waiting many months to make such a decision.  It never entered anyone's mind that what are now called late-term abortions were even possible.............

In short, from the first ultrasound, everything changed for us life-long pro-choicers.  Embryos are human beings; fetuses are babies.  The shock of this truth is undeniable to anyone who has seen a baby in utero...........Yet every member of the Democratic Party is committed to not just third-trimester abortion, but post-birth infanticide.  Not one of them will admit to the glaring immorality of this policy.  Not one..............

The Democrats' fervent dedication to the culture of unrestricted abortion is a sign of their abject amorality.  That not one of the presidential candidates has the courage to buck the party's embrace of what amounts to a genocide is an ominous warning of who and what they have become.  They may think they are winning the hearts and minds of the American people, but millions of parents and grandparents have now seen ultrasounds of their own children and grandchildren, from the embryonic stage to birth.  They know that what they have seen is the hand of God.........Read more
