Watching a Sonogram Before Getting an Abortion is ‘Totalitarianism’?
I don’t watch The View. But every morning, I drive to my mother’s apartment to check on her and dispense her daily medication. On Wednesday morning, The View was on. The topic was the “decision by a Texas judge to uphold a law requiring women to look at an ultrasound before having an abortion. Co-host and journalist Barbara Walters found the legal ruling — and not the act of abortion itself — to be ‘heartbreaking.’”
If an abortion is nothing more than a glob of tissue and not a person, then why would viewing an ultrasound be “heartbreaking”? Is it heartbreaking to see an ultrasound of a burst appendix before it’s removed? How about a tumor? Scott Whitlock of Newsbusters writes:
It was left up to token conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck to make some obvious points, noting that if you were going to have “a cyst removed or tooth extracted . . . you would never go through any medical procedure without looking at an ultrasound, seeing an X-ray.”
It’s only heartbreaking if what’s being aborted is something more than a mess of tissue. A number of years ago, I watched an interview that Geraldo Rivera did with an abortion clinic owner. I don’t know the year or the network. Geraldo was holding a small glass vile that contained an aborted baby. He held it up to the clinic owner’s face and said, “This sure looks like a baby.” The clinic owner turned her face away.
Why did you turn away? Because Geraldo was right. It looks like a baby. For the liberal women of the view, such a demand by the court is, according to Joy Behar, “totalitarianism.”
“I mean, it smacks of forcing somebody to confront something that they have already decided they don’t want to deal with.” Walters, adding liberal insult to insane injury, babbled, “Then to have to go and be forced to hear, to see the fetus, to hear the heartbeat, to put more guilt on you, I think is heartbreaking.”
There it is, staring her right in the face, hearing the heartbeat with her own ears, and Walters is still in favor of allowing a mother to make the choice to kill the “fetus.” Later Walters says, the decision to “give up a child that is obviously unwanted … is such a tremendous decision. It’s involved with so much fear of what you’re doing and guilt.”
“Give up a child”? No . . . no . . . no! It’s a glob of tissue. It can’t have a heartbeat. These women are fools. You knew this already, but here it is for the world to see and hear. Sadly, their comments are passed off as the expression of an enlightened worldview.
Let me point out just one last thing to show the utter stupidity and hypocrisy of these left-wing nuts.
It’s OK to force companies to print the ingredients on packaged foods on labels so people know what their eating, but it’s totalitarian to force women to watch a sonogram of what they’re about to kill.
