Today the question soliciting reader's opinions in Your Thoughts Count is "Do you support the bill to require that women seeking an abortion be shown an ultrasound video?
I would like to make a comment regarding that question.
No. I will not consider support for requiring a woman to undergo a sonogram and view it before an abortion until soldiers are required to watch videos of the humans they are volunteering to kill for their chosen countries; until prison guards are required to view home videos filmed by the parents and spouses of the humans they voluntarily guard; until juries in murder trials are required to watch a video of a legal execution before they determine sentencing in that trial; until bar patrons are required to spend 15 minutes in an ante room off the bar entry viewing a video of a drunk driver colliding with a car carrying a young family including their infant and killing them all instantly.
No. I will not consider support for requiring a woman to undergo a sonogram and then view it before an abortion until each individual who is outraged by abortion demonstrates the willingness to adopt the infant a single woman or a married couple can not care for; until society cherishes each infant born enough to loving provide shelter, food and clothing for women and their children and childcare when they are able to work; until parents demonstrate their moral righteousness by teaching their children to respect the humanness of all fellow beings including their adopted siblings, step-siblings, neighborhood playmates, schoolmates and that bullying and rape is an outrage.
No. I will not consider support for requiring a woman to undergo a sonogram and then view it before an abortion until each individual who is outraged by women being allowed control over their own bodies and lives are equally outraged by the wanton sexuality and senseless killing of human beings portrayed in the virtual reality brought before us everyday by television programming and consumer product advertising and are willing to demonstrate their willingness to end it by lobby their legislator until inviolate standards of decency in TV programing and advertising with mandatory jail time for violators are in place.
