Two foetuses make appearance at Ohio abortion bill debate

An interesting news item at Holy Post (with acknowledgements to Fr Tim Moyle) about the live monitoring of two unborn children in their mothers' wombs during a debate in the committee room of Ohio's state legislature. Attempts are being made to make abortion illegal once it is possible to detect the child's heartbeat. This could possibly make abortion pretty much illegal since the heartbeat can be detected as early as six weeks into pregnancy and, apparently, many mothers are not aware they are pregnant by that time.

The event was dismissed as an absurd stunt by Kellie Copeland, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio, the state wing of the country’s most powerful abortion rights group. She said:
Did these legislators really need to see a fetus in the committee room to know it has a heartbeat? The whole thing was absurd. It seemed like the members of the committee had no idea what an ultrasound looked like or ever heard of a fetal heart monitor before.

This is not the kind of information that women need to decide whether they are going to get an abortion.

No, let's keep the truth from these mothers so that the killing industry can continue.


  1. For those that think this was a stunt, how do you respond to Copeland's last comment?

    For her to say that, that this isn't the "type of information" - what is?

    When I heard about this, I thought it was a "bad idea" from the standpoint that the Pro-Abortion crowd would turn it against us in the media and make it seem a "silly stunt" but in fact, just the opposite has happened. The Pro-abortion crowd showed their true colors and became fearful of the truth!

  2. I look to America to lead the pro-life pro-family way for those of us trying to keep our heads above the culture-sewage that is the UK.
    Surely somewhere has to offer a green and pleasant land...

  3. How terrible that the people in control medically are saying things like this. I had, what I thought, was a miscarriage with no hope of the baby being saved, yet in my fourth pregnancy, someting very similar occurred and I did lose one baby, but the other ( a non-identical twin) survived.

    I was haemmoriging badly when brought into hospital, but the emergency consultant, said to me that the normal procedure would be to have a D and C? However, he was a born again Christian and believed in giving nature it's optimum stance. I don't really know what those words mean, but I said yes.

    He's six foot four, that little embryo that Mr Settatree saved.

    Thank you Lord, for good Doctors.
