From a pro-life blog called “Stand for Life:

“For the last five years Focus on the Family has had the program Option Ultrasound, where they have provided over 400 grants for ultrasound machines and training at pregnancy clinics in 49 states. These machines cost from $21,000 to $33,000, plus several thousands in training costs. They have found that the use of ultrasound doubles the potential number of babies saved compared to only counseling, resulting in nearly 63,000 lives saved with this project.”

A number of states are requiring that women be given an option to see an ultrasound. That seems reasonable to me, as long as they’re not required.
What do you think?
