Fetal Matter Smiles

Ultrasound images were always grainy and blurry and often left you wondering if what you were looking at was a toe or a nose - no longer. General Electric has created some outstanding 3D/4D imaging technology, currently being used by some doctors and hospitals (for an example, go to http://www.geddeskeepsake.com)

Abortion proponents are quick to criticize GE, however, for pointing out that you can see your unborn baby smile! Many have claimed a GE hidden agenda for showing the obvious. What they categorize as simply disposing of fetal matter, like it was last week's newpaper, is undeniably the taking of an innocent, human life.

There may occassionally be cases where an abortion is necessary for a woman's health and well-being. No woman faced with such a challenge should be made to feel like a criminal for doing what is necessary. On the other hand, we cannot dismiss that the vast majority of the 45 million abortions performed since 1973 are completely unecessary from a medical standpoint. We cannot dismiss the retail killing of an unborn child and call it a "simple procedure" because, now, we cannot dismiss the facts - There is a living, feeling human being in the womb - to kill that innocent person is murder.
