    I can understand that it would be really difficult for a woman having the procedure done but I also think its important women are well aware of what they are doing. Not as punishment or emotional blackmail, but kind of like what twotrunks is saying.

    I think counselling should be compulsary- proper counselling, not what they have in place now. To protect women, not to guilt them.
    I agree.
    I was shocked at my 12 week scan when the sonographer asked if I wanted to see the screen. She then explained as I was on my own she had to ask incase I was just having the dating scan done before terminating. If dh was with me they assume you are keeping the baby.

    They do do an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy, gestation etc.

    You can look at it if you choose.

    They also need to confirm where the pregnancy is (eg an ectopic will mean a different procedure needs to be done).

    This is what I thought. My friend had an abortion and she said the worst part was seeing the ultrasound.

    No. I was undecided in my decision when I had my first scan I heard the heart beat and there was no longer an option in my mind.
    People choose to terminate because it's the right thing for them, if you don't know your dates then surely there is another way?

    Yes they should have a scan done. I don't see why they wouldn't in the first place? Don't they need to know how along they are to work out what sort of procedure they need done or that they are too far along for one?
    I don't think the women should have to see the ultrasound or hear a heartbeat but I believe it should be done first. It's safer for the women.
    And I think they should have counceling before and after the procedure for sure to make sure they are emotionally and mentally well.

    When I had a termination a couple of years ago, I had to have a scan before the procedure to see how far along I was (I had a general idea but wasn't 100%) and was told how far into the pregnancy I was. I don't know if that's the type of scan you were talking about?

    they do need to have an ultra sound (they don't have to look at the screen - it faces teh other way unless you agreee to view)

    - what the topic is suggesting is that anatomy be visually pointed out to the woman...and that is should be compulsory for non medical abortions.

    I think abortion should not rushed into quickly. I also think people should have to see s councillor do they can talk openly to someone and hopefully work out what they really think is best. Ultrasounds should be a must have as I have heard women of over 3 months going in to have a termination and just lying about how far along they are.

    A session with a gynecologist should also be arranged for after the procedure where the work out some sort of birth control.
    From what I have heard a termination is as easy as making an appointment going in and getting put to sleep then waking up to tea and bickies then you pay you $300.00 and off you go!
