Planned Parenthood Director Quits After Watching Abortion on Ultrasound

Fox News reports:

The former director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in southeast Texas says she had a “change of heart” after watching an abortion last month — and she quit her job and joined a pro-life group in praying outside the facility.

Abby Johnson, 29, used to escort women from their cars to the clinic in the eight years she volunteered and worked for Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas. But she says she knew it was time to leave after she watched a fetus “crumple” as it was vacuumed out of a patient’s uterus in September.

This raises an interesting point. Given the current legality of abortion in the U.S., would it be unreasonable to mandate that women considering having an abortion watch a.) a video of an abortion procedure, and/or b.) a live ultrasound of the little life inside of her?

There is nothing more fascinating and miraculous than the first time you see your own little unborn baby on an ultrasound screen. Even as early as 10 weeks you can see little arms and legs moving around and a little heart beating at 170+ times a minute. It makes you wonder how many women, confronted with the beauty of a living fetus and/or the horrow of its termination, would still go through the procedure.

What do you think?

  1. I only wish it were true. Unfortunately, with the demise of the moral fabric in our nation and within our own congregations, right and wrong too often fall into gray areas. I suspect there are too many women who are only thinking of their selves would still go through with it.

    I pulled these statistics from the WEB.

    Why women have abortions:

    1% of all abortions occur because of rape or incest; 6% of abortions occur because of potential health problems regarding either the mother or child, and 93% of all abortions occur for social reasons (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient).

    And here's another one which is really shocking…

    Who's having abortions (religion)?

    Women identifying themselves as Protestants obtain 37.4% of all abortions in the U.S.; Catholic women account for 31.3%, Jewish women account for 1.3%, and women with no religious affiliation obtain 23.7% of all abortions. 18% of all abortions are performed on women who identify themselves as "Born-again/Evangelical".

    Staggering.

  2. That is staggering. Sadly, statistics for virtually all moral failings within the church are strikingly high. Of course, just because someone labels him/herself a 'born-again Christian' doesn't mean they are, so those stats are probably a little inflated. But the truth remains that the church in America has a serious sin problem. We are far too comfortable with sin. From abortion to lying to substance abuse to pornography addiction the church is in serious need of cleansing from sin, or we risk the danger of being pruned from the Vine.
