A New York Times article recently said that women seeing an ultrasound of the baby before abortion don’t usually change their mind. But this is wishful thinking among abortionists. The experience of the pro-life movement, particularly in the pregnancy centers, is very clear and consistent that seeing the baby increases the bonding experience, gives the mother a clearer understanding of how developed the child is, and gives her new strength to choose life.
Of course, where you are when you see the ultrasound will make a difference. If you’re in a pregnancy center already, you’ve opened yourself to receive the helpful guidance you need. If you’re on an abortionist’s table, it’s harder to turn around, and you’re surrounded by people whose very livelihood depends on your continuing with that procedure.
