Stop looking in the womb! And don’t listen to the heartbeat! There’s nothing in there but a blob of tissue! That’s all! Move along. Nothing to see here.
As us anti-science troglodyte conservative types embrace 21st century technology, liberals are desperate to drag women back into the dark ages by not allowing them to know what (or who?!) is growing inside of them.
CMR loves standing up for women’s rights. Yup. That’s how we roll. We’re all feministy like that. Patrick even used to cry at Little House on the Prairie episodes as a show of solidarity with women -at least that’s why he said he was crying.

A Fargo, North Dakota abortion business has filed a lawsuit to stop women from having the ability to see an ultrasound of their unborn children before the have an abortion. Gov. John Hoeven signed the measure into law in May after the state House easily approved the ultrasound measure.
The House backed House Bill 1371, on a strongly bipartisan 77-9 vote in February and the Senate signed off on the bill in April. The measure is designed to help women learn the humanity of their unborn child and to consider abortion alternatives.
While most abortion businesses do an ultrasound before an abortion is done on a woman and her unborn child, that doesn’t mean the mother will have a chance to see it. Rep. Bette Grande, a Republican sponsoring House Bill 1371, hopes the bill changes that.
However, the Red River Women’s Clinic, the only abortion business in the state, filed a lawsuit to stop the law from taking effect on August 1.
With help from the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-abortion legal group, the abortion center is asking for a temporary injunction against the ultrasound measure.
The law requires that a woman seeking an abortion be offered the opportunity to see an ultrasound of her unborn child and hear the fetal heartbeat, which can begin as early as eighteen days after fertilization.
Red River claims the law is confusing and would limit a woman’s ability to get an abortion. It also claims allowing a woman to hear the heartbeat of her baby is inconsistent with best medical practices and claims the cost of the equipment is too burdensome.
Can you imagine fighting against women knowing what’s going on in their bodies? Seriously, what other issue except abortion would cause this kind of madness?
Let’s accept their premises for a moment that pregnancy is a women’s health care issue like any other. Could you imagine if a woman went to a doctor complaining of headaches and “women’s advocates” fought to have the results of CT Scans hidden from women. They wouldn’t be seen as pro-woman, would they? They’d be seen as insane. But because it’s not about appendectomies or headaches and it’s only about killing babies then they’re viewed as perfectly sane and champions of women’s rights.
I also love how these “women’s advocates” say that’s it’s “too confusing” for the woman. What’s confusing? Do they think women are idiots and so easily confused? And when I’m confused I often seek more evidence. Wouldn’t a nice picture clear things up quite nicely?
