Generic Confusion

News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

Differing standards

After Abortion compares the screening, counseling, and advice given to men seeking a vasectomy and how little is offered to women seeking an abortion.

Why would we do so little to teach women? Why keep them in the dark? If, say, men were instructed about the risks and treatment options for prostate cancer more than women were for breast cancer, there would be a huge hue and cry, a terrible outrage, and we would not hear the end of it.

Then there's a recent bill passed by the Indiana Senate

Women who want an abortion in Indiana would be told they can view an ultrasound of the fetus and hear the heartbeat, if there is one, before going ahead with the procedure, under a bill approved Thursday by the Indiana Senate.

Why would you oppose that? Why would you want to keep women ignorant? Some people, blinded by ideology, no doubt think any law regarding abortion is just a ploy to get it banned. But others probably realized that having a firmer grasp on the humanity of the unborn child will cause fewer women to choose abortion. And that's a choice most "pro-choicers" don't want to allow.
