Shh! Don’t Tell Women Considering Abortion There’s a Baby [Excerpts] Pro-abortion forces are not happy that a [Texas] state law now requires abortion clinics to have patients watch a sonogram of their unborn baby, receive a medically-accurate explanation of what they are seeing, and listen to the baby’s heartbeat. This last part was too much truth for pro-choice blogger Denise Paolucci. She came up with the idea of raising money in order to purchase iPods for abortion clinics. Her idea was to offer them to patients to allow them to drown out the sound of the baby’s heartbeat. After raising a thousand dollars, Paolucci made the iPod offer to several Planned Parenthood clinics, some of which enthusiastically took her up on this offer. Now, you kind of have to wonder why anyone would want to help women drown out the truth about abortion. After all, how much choice does a woman really have if she’s kept in the dark about what she’s doing? And you have to wonder what’s next? Eye patches to prevent women from seeing their babies kick and hiccup on the sonogram? The hypocrisy of abortion advocates becomes even more evident when you recall their attacks on pro-life crisis pregnancy centers. Abortion proponents demanded that signs be placed outside crisis pregnancy centers informing women that abortions are not offered there. Why? Because as Nancy Keenan, a spokeswoman for NARAL put it, “We should all agree that a woman should not be misled or manipulated when she’s facing an unintended pregnancy… Being honest to a woman facing an unintended pregnancy should not be too much to ask for.” (Metaxas, Washington, DC,, 5/29/12)
