I'm a fellow pro-life/anti-abortion citizen. But I feel a little sick about the abortion/ultrasound bill being discussed today on the senate floor. This bill reeks of emotional coercion toward women at a time when they need not persuasion to keep a pregnancy, but rather simple education regarding their options. Vast misunderstandings persist about the realities of the best alternative to abortion: adoption. Too many women get abortions simply because they do not feel ready to raise a child in a single-parent home. The research strongly validates their fears--kids generally don't fare as well in single-parent homes. I feel concerned that the abortion/ultrasound bill may contribute to some women ending up as hesitant, unwilling, unprepared single moms. Why not put more of your legislating efforts toward educating about and promoting ADOPTION rather than fighting abortion?
