Ladies, What You Need To Know About Vaginal Ultrasounds And Abortion

24 May

So there’s a hot debate going on about vaginal ultrasounds being mandated by the government for any woman seeking an abortion.  Here’s the thing that no one has bothered to tell you: vaginal ultrasounds are a routine part of the abortion procedure.  Yes, this type of ultrasound is performed at most abortion clinics already.  It’s just that Republican politicians are trying to be even bigger jerks by making it seem like they are forcing you to get a “medically unneccessary procedure”.

In reality, an ultrasound before an abortion is a medically necessary procedure.  The doctor needs to have the most accurate reading of how far along the pregnancy is.  And most doctors get this reading with a vaginal ultrasound.  This is standard practice at Planned Parenthood of Illinois.  All medication and surgical abortion patients will receive a vaginal ultrasound before their abortion procedure.  The pregnancy has to be visible on the ultrasound machine for an abortion to be performed.

Here’s another thing no one has bothered to tell you: ultrasounds are really just guesstimates and approximations on how far along the pregnancy is.  They cannot 100% determine how pregnant a woman actually is.

And one more thing you should know.  If you choose to do a medication abortion you are required to return for a follow up appointment where another vaginal ultrasound will be performed to make sure the pregnancy has passed.  This is the most accurate way to determine that.

I want to share this excerpt from lifenews.com, yes those pro-life people that would call me a pro-abortionist(?).  What they have to say here is valid and I always admire intelligence:

“Yet, while abortion backers say having an ultrasound is like getting raped, a 2003 study shows 99% of Planned Parenthood abortion facilities do them beforehand.

Published in the medical journal Contraception in 2003, researchers with the pro-abortion group IPAS, the University of North Carolina, a consortium of Planned Parenthood clinics and the National Abortion Federation surveyed staff at 113 Planned Parenthood affiliates and independent abortion businesses between February and April 2000.

The study specifically concerned the use of the dangerous abortion drug RU 486 (mifepristone) and the survey indicated the drug could be given to women at Planned Parenthood centers and abortion clinics because of vaginal ultrasounds.

Surveying 72 of the abortion businesses that sold the abortion pill to women, the researchers found abortion facilities frequently use vaginal ultrasounds before an abortion to determine the gestational age of the baby or afterwards to determine if the abortion was complete. In fact 99 percent of the abortion facilities surveyed always or sometimes performed an ultrasound in association with the surgical abortion — while just one percent did not.”

So the real question is what are they trying to take our attention away from?  The government is trying to pass a law on a medical procedure that almost all doctors already follow…

Baby Killer

8 Nov

Baby killer.  That’s what my sister calls me whenever she gets mad at me.  I guess it’s intended to hurt my feelings?  It doesn’t.  In a recent text message conversation she turned on me and called me a baby killer, the devil, and said I needed to go to church.  Excuse me, but when was the last time you set foot in a church my dear?  I told her to watch some George Carlin; it would make her feel a lot better about life.

She calls me a baby killer because I worked at Planned Parenthood.  Why would she think that term would offend me then?  I thought being a pro-baby killer was a prerequisite for the job.  Apparently it’s not because Planned Parenthood (in Chicago) hires employees that think abortion is wrong unless it’s because of rape.  *Gasp*, tis true.  How fucked up is that?

Actually, I didn’t even work in the abortion clinic at Planned Parenthood.  I worked in the family planning clinic which meant the main part of my job was counseling women on birth control to prevent pregnancy.  The other part of my job did include what is called options counseling.  This is provided to women who come in and test positive for pregnancy.

On their intake sheet there is a handy dandy section where they can mark what they want to do about the pregnancy.  1- Continue the pregnancy, 2-Terminate the pregnancy, 3-Adoption, 4-Undecided, or 5-Discuss all options.  Most women know what they want to do before they even come in for the test.   So, if they want to continue the pregnancy I would talk to them about proper prenatal care and applying for Medicaid to cover it.  For adoption I would give them a referral to the Cradle, an adoption agency.

For those that want to terminate, are undecided, or want to discuss all options what I’ve found is those women just really want to know what is involved with the abortion procedure and the difference between the 2 types of abortion procedures.  Any woman considering an abortion I ALWAYS RECOMMEND the surgical procedure with sedation.  Trust me it’ll be the best decision you ever made.
