Oklahoma has drafted new laws, which would require a woman to see an ultrasound before an abortion and/or answer questions in a survey about why she is having one.
I favour both of these ideas, as does the woman who helped draft the laws:
“Do they feel they have no other choice? Is it financial? What are the reasons that lead up to that very desperate choice of a woman?” said Republican state Rep. Pam Peterson, who played a key role in drafting both laws.
If you only have one choice, it isn’t really a choice. And these ardent pro-choicers know that when women see their babies on an ultrasound, they tend to not want to kill them. It’s called information, and unless you have a hidden agenda, it shouldn’t be so scary.
Rebecca adds: Surely we’re the only ones with a hidden agenda, right?
Andrea adds: Correct, Rebecca. It has been empirically proven that only right wing religious nutbars can ever have a hidden agenda. Pro-choicers on the left came out all clear.by
