Ultrasounds Aren’t In Planned Parenthood’s Agenda

Planned Parenthood Knows The Future

Planned Parenthood (PP) Wisconsin abortion business is very worried about a new law allowing women to see ultrasounds of their unborn child. So concerned, PP insisted they will file a lawsuit to stop it. Only one of about seven hundred PP locations throughout the US, they fear the inevitable – 90% of women seeing their personal ultrasound, refuse to get an abortion.

PP is very aware of what abortion gives them. Immediate reduction of their bottom line results, since abortions are their main business. Take away at least $650 for the abortion procedure, and hundreds for any pre-/post-natal visits. As of PP’s 2010 Annual Report, 91.2% of their funds were directly related to abortion services.

On December 27, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) finally released its latest Annual Report (2009-2010). It indicates PPFA had a total budget of $1.04 billion and an excess of revenue, or net profit, of $18.5 million. The new report shows 46% of their total budget comes from taxpayer dollars.

The picture was taken on August 19, 1999, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, TN., during an incredible procedure to correct spina bifida on an unborn child. Julie Armas was twenty one weeks pregnant with little Samuel at the time of the procedure.

Wisconsin Generates ‘Sonya’s Law’

The Wisconsin legislature approved SB206 (Sonya’s Law), which provides the opportunity for their mother to see their baby by ultrasound, before she decides how to proceed with her pregnancy. The mother can choose the type of ultrasound after hearing all options. The bill is named after Sonya, the mother of two older children. Once she saw her child and realized his heart was beating, Sonya’s emotional connection with her baby and the decision to carry him to term were made.

PP/ Wisconsin was obsessed, and released a statement saying it will file suit against that ultrasound. That suit will be filed immediately after Gov. Scott Walker quickly signs it into law. PP complains the law protects women’s health by making sure they can get immediate medical care following a failed abortion.

Wait, wait. First, there’s not supposed to be any abortion, and if there is one, it’s not supposed to fail, where the one getting the abortion needs immediate medical care. PP specifically disagrees with SB206, which requires abortion providers to have staff admitting privileges at a local hospital. Let’s rehash those statements: PP is angry the governor is going to sign the ultrasound bill (SB206)-that PP doesn’t have in the first place. The patient has the choice whether or not to view the ultrasound, but PP doesn’t want any emergency personnel around if they botch the abortion job.

Susan Armacost (Director/Wisconsin Right to Life), says PP is misleading people about the bill. “In spite of the blatant misinformation being promoted by the opponents of Sonya’s Law, this legislation does not force women to have a specific type of ultrasound,” said Armacost. “It is up to the women to choose the type of ultrasound she prefers, after all options are explained to her.” Most states usually have an ultrasound during an abortion, but rarely allow a woman to see it herself.

Have To Go To A Pro-Life ‘PRC’ For Ultrasounds

Since the 1990s, pro-life Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs) have been offering ultrasounds to pregnant mothers considering abortion. This movement to provide ultrasounds has increased dramatically. Currently more than 860 “PRCs” are providing ultrasounds, and other medical services for pregnant females.

And very recently, many courageous Texas lawmakers (including Governor Rick Perry), passed a ban on abortions after 20 weeks by the Texas State House this week. The vote was 96-49, in favor of the ban. It made national news when pro-abortion senator Wendy Davis filibustered the bill by speaking for over 11 hours, to no avail. Of course, nobody really knows, if or when, medical equipment will be able to determine if babies feel pain before 20 weeks. Not so long ago, nobody thought babies felt pain up until birth.

The Unseen Factor of Pain

It seems like babies only felt the excruciating pain of abortion (ripping off appendages, saline & chemical deaths, born alive but left to die, etc., etc…) after the first 5-6 six weeks. Author’s bad. That only amounts to a trillion or so forced fetal deaths since the birth of mankind.

Where does our gruesome partnership with death end?
