WANT TO SEE THE BABIES PICTURE? IF YOU ARE GOING TO KILL IT IN SOUTH CAROLINA, YOU HAVE TO!!!



Good news from the wires;

"COLUMBIA, S.C. (BP)--The South Carolina House of Representatives passed a bill March 21 that would require women seeking an abortion to view an ultrasound image of their unborn baby, and, pro-lifers say, could lead many of those same women to continue the pregnancy."

This is wisdom in the cultural war. It is fighting smart, which is not always easy to maintain. It can become very tempting to not think through things and simply go in guns blasting, but this has not been the case, fortunately, in South Carolina. No one would debate the reality that when an abortion minded mom (intentional use of the term) shows up desiring to end her pregnancy, the ultrasound is a life saver, literally. Far fewer abortions are performed when the results of the ultrasound are seen. It is common sense that if you show the woman the picture of that "thing" in her stomach and are able to point out that it is actually a child, they will reconsider. Most of them must reconsider as they are not believing they are about to kill their living child. When that point can be made via the ultrasound , that child's chances of living just went up dramatically.

Kudos to the wise pols in South Carolina. Now it will be interesting to see if other states begin to follow suit. While without a doubt this will be challenged in court, who can be against someone simply being made to take a quick look at the child they are about to kill?
