The Wash Post runs a front-page story on crisis-pregnancy centers and their use of sonograms to persuade expectant mothers to keep their babies. Key graf:
With its ultrasound machine and its location, the Severna Park Pregnancy Clinic demonstrates two of the most important tactics in an intensifying campaign to woo women away from abortion clinics. Antiabortion organizations in recent years have added medical services to hundreds of Christian-oriented pregnancy counseling centers nationwide. Many of these antiabortion clinics have opened in or near places where women go to end pregnancies.
To “abortion rights advocates,” reports the Post, this represents “a dangerous trend.” But isn’t this an example of women exercising their freedoms and choices–the freedom to change their minds, and the choice to have their babies?
