“Informed Consent”

Informed consent is a basic principle in health care today–except when the topic is abortion. That’s become clear in the reaction of the Abortion Industry to sonogram laws, as noted in this NPR story. Can you imagine a doctor not using imaging technology of some kind before any other medical procedure? Can you imagine lobbyists seeking arguing that use of imaging in any other case denied women a choice? Of course not! They’d argue the opposite, that informed consent meant using all available sources of information to show the patient what was going on, what they were going to do, and the outcome of the procedures. Why is the Abortion Industry against informed consent? Because they want to hide the truth from women. They want women to think they are getting rid of some excess tissue. They don’t want women to know that Abortion Kills.
