New studies help 'explode myth' about consequences of abortion from the Baptist Press.

This piece discusses several recent medical journal articles. I would direct you to my previous posts on these studies except that this is a Blogger website and my archives are MIA.

"While such research uncovers the truth on abortion, Cutrer said it will do little to dissuade a woman from having an abortion. At that point, he said, the biggest difference-maker comes from ultrasound machines that show the pregnant woman 'it's not a blob of tissue.' The newest ultrasound technology, called 4-D, allows the woman to see her baby moving in the womb. The tiniest features, such as the sucking of the thumb, can be seen."

This article has a patriarchal tone that reminds me of why women feel a strong visceral motivation to maintain authority over their own minds and bodies.
