    Default Should those undertaking non medical abortion...s *TRIGGER WARNING*

    Should those undertaking non medical abortions be required to have an anatomy ultrasound first?


    This is already being suggested in the States.


    Would you support the idea or oppose the idea - why/why not??

    Absolutely not. It just figures the states would try and introduce something like that

    Done - sorry.

    I was going to -- it was a spin off from another thread.
    I copypasted the subject but it didn't fit in the title box - and then I forgot to edit.

    Only if it is non-compulsory and completely optional.

    If there is 1% of uncertainty an ultrasound may be of assistance in confirming the woman's final decision.

    No. Usually when people decide they are having an abortion it has taken a lot of thought and isn't a decision to be made lightly.
    I think it could be potentially damaging emotionally as they could develop an attachment actually having seen it.

    Nope, not if they don't want to. What would be the point?

    No, it's manipulation.

    If she's made the decision for whatever reason, then that should be enough, and should be respected.

    It's designed to make you want to keep the foetus by forcing you into an emotional and instinctive bond. Emotion cannot care for or pay for a baby.
    It is dangerous to both mother and potential child to force the woman into an emotional attachment that may not last after the birth.

    Gosh, no.

    Bodily autonomy all the way. Don't go trying to manipulate and emotionally blackmail people.
