Abortion and Informed Consent, a syndicated column by Cal Thomas about Women's Right to Know/informed consent legislation.

Because most women who regret having had abortions say they would have made a different choice if they had been given more information, state legislatures and Congress should be focusing on providing that information. From requirements that the pregnant woman see a sonogram picture of what she is about to abort, to information about alternatives, places to live and free baby clothes, furniture and counseling, laws should give women at least as much information as that required in the supermarket, the bank and the automobile showroom.

Politically, this is a win-win for everyone except those who want to keep women ignorant. No one is taking away "a woman's right to choose." The woman is simply receiving additional information so that her choice
will be fully informed. To those who claim such legislation implies women are ignorant and can't be trusted, the reply should be, "Fine,
let's remove labels from bottles, packages and cans; let's not require banks to provide women with information about loans; and let's take
those stickers off the windows of new and used cars. Women are smart enough to figure out these things on their own."
