Abortion providers challenge Oklahoma ultrasound requirement

Catholic World News - May 04, 2010

Abortion providers in Oklahoma have won a delay in the implementation of a new law requiring an ultrasound examination before abortions. Attorney General Drew Edmondson accepted a court order blocking the enforcement of the law while the Center for Reproductive Rights makes a court challenge. The pro-abortion Center argues that the requirement for an ultrasound is intrusive, and a doctor's description of the unborn child may include information that the abortion-minded woman does not want to hear.

    Good grief, informed consent often means a patient will hear unpleasant news, but the point is to ensure as much as possible that the patient can make an informed decision about her health. Obviously, the pro-aborts have succeeded by keeping their clients ignorant, but it is as immoral and unethical as not telling a cancer patient when a treatment may be as hazardous as the cancer, or that a less radical surgery may be a viable option. ALL patients need to know what they face.
