In regards to the OP - no. i do not agree with making the woman watch the anatomy scan prior to a medical abortion. I think counselling should be provided (primarily to ensure that the woman is there of her own free will). And while I'm not sure how it works in other places, at the clinics in my area, they do the scan (to ensure they know where the fetus is, gestation etc), and women are given the option to view if they want. And they are given good counseling + family planning help for afterwards. its not just 'walk off the street, and done 20min later'.
So have the scan, sure - but i don't agree with having to watch it. and i *definitely* do not EVER agree with it being mandatory internal u/s.

Women already have an uss. They are given the option of seeing the screen. To force them to look is nothing short of torture and a loss of basic human rights.

Regardless of whether women want to look at the screen or not, we could have the sonographer point out each and every little part of the scan as they do it. 40minutes of being told every.single.little.thing
would *that* be enough 'informed consent'.
maybe we could also sit these women infront of a movie...like babies. so they understand *exactly* what it is they're doing.

Oh, and I believe I am responding to the original question. Some of you have said you agree with compulsory ultrasounds (and as they are already compulsory I think she was referring to forcing a woman to see it).
If you agree, I would like to hear how it would be enforced in your world. Not an unreasonable question I think

No. I'm 100% against, the idea is simply abhorrent.

Please keep in mind that a number of bubhub members have had terminations (for a wide variety of reasons) and this is a VERY emotional and sensitive topic.
Therefore, please ensure that your opinion is very carefully worded to not cause unnecessary hardship to women who have already endured enough.
This is the first and only warning.

Nope, not on your nelly.

How much she chooses to listen to is not something that can be measured or forced.
I have read many times that women who view an ultrasound of their baby are much less likely to follow through with an abortion. There are statistics but im on my phone and cant look up properly. The statistics alone make compulsory ultrasounds worthwhile imo. The more babies that escape abortion, the better in my eyes. :-)
