    Women shouldn't have to hae a sonogram. That's just stupid. If someone is ready to abort their child, for the love of GOD!!!! Let them.

    If abortion is legal in this country(and it is), then laws like this are just harassment of people going about their legal rights. The law serves zero purpose except to harass those who are going to have an abortion and potentially increase their cost(you know some one is going to pay for that sonogram, right?).

    Hell, I can go buy a pack of smokes, which are harmful to me and potentially those around me with no requirement of anything except I be 18. This is a stupid law that serves no good purpose.

    I'm not really sure that this law will serve the purpose it's supposed to serve. Most women who abort do it before 9 weeks gestation. At that point, the embryo just looks like a vaguely humanoid blob. Here are a couple of sonograms at 9 weeks.





    Images such as those are unlikely to serve the purpose that the people who sponsored this legislation intend them to serve (i.e. to make the woman considering abortion feel an emotional connection with the life growing inside her and decide not to abort).

    I think it's awful in this day and age women will allow unwanted pregnancies, with all the available contraception there is in forms as simple as a condom, that also will prevent STDs.

    I think it's on the verge of criminal that a woman will have one abortion and within two years she's back again for another one.

    I think it would be in everyone's best interest to make it harder to get the first Abortion and make it mandatory that after that first one the woman go on Birth control pills or be fitted with an IUD.

    What about the case where a father rapes his own daughter, and she becomes pregnant? What about rape in general? Should it be criminal, in those cases, for a woman to seek an abortion? Do you support those requirements in cases like that?

    There will always be Government intervention and Government poking thier noses in where some, half, most, or even all the people think that it doesn't belong. That is quite literally its job. What you have to do is decide whether a particular intervention is warranted or not. On case by case basis.

    If you don't want government intervention then all you want is chaos. If all you want is government intervention then you pretty much advocate for slavery. But inbetween those two ideologies is a very HUGE middle ground/grey area that you just can't lump into one big pot. Otherwise you will get chaos or slavery.
