I think it's wrong. If a scan is needed for whatever reason (perhaps to establish gestation? I dunno), there's no reason the woman should have to look at any of it.

I think it's wrong. Why have freedom of anything if people are just going to continue to try and take basic human rights away?

For some women who are victims of abuse etc, the image would have little impact on an already concreted decision (as a PP mentioned). Who knows, for those women who have been coerced or pressured to have the procedure by (as are some of the stories here on the hub), the image may just give them strength to continue on.
It really is a tricky topic... But I can definitely see validity in the argument that it could be considered a tool for emotional blackmail. I should hope that wasn't the case

See, if I were to have an abortion it wouldn't be because I loathe the thought of my uterus being inhabited, or I hate babies, or just love the idea of termination. It would be because I, and my partner, had together decided that *now* was not a good time for us. That we had thought over all the consequences of continuing the pregnancy and decided it was a good idea not to do it.
It would still be an effing hard decision, but it would be one that I would feel was a good decision because we would not be ready for another child in our care at that point in time.
To parade an U/S image of a baby would make my heart ache. Because honestly, my heart is a fool and wants stuff that is stupid. My heart is an idiot. My heart would be happy if I was on drugs, or if all I did was sleep all day, or whatever. It does not have the ability to make rational decisions, but pop that little baby on screen and it would dominate my head. My head, and my partner's head, that had decided that a baby was a bad idea for us at that point in time.
It might actually convince me to have a baby that I actually do not want to have, and that I would probably regret having (but of course, never admit that, because who wants to be the mother who says, "Yeah, I really wish I had have terminated after all"?).
