This is a touchy subject. I was once all about saying that first trimester babies aren't alive yet. That's until I heard my own son's heartbeat and saw him through ultra-sound at just 8 weeks old. His head, heart, and limbs were already forming.
Hearing that heartbeat was the world's most beautiful sound to me. My views on abortion have effectively changed.
Will I ever try to push my views on someone? Nope. Well, maybe if they are getting one those late abortions. I still firmly believe that abortion time-frames should be reduced.
Do I believe it should be illegal? Still not really. Do I think that implementing a rule that forces soon to abort women to listen to and view an ultrasound is wrong? No I don't. At the same time, I believe it should be done on a case to case basis. If you are a minor, then yes. You should be forced to listen to it. Young girls take these things for granted and more often than not they need a cold hard slap in the face by reality to learn some of life's lessons.
Should adults and especially rape victims be forced to do this? Hell no.
Snowolf, I think I have to respectfully disagree with another one of your comments. About the gun law and not fighting for a ban and instead just choose not to own one... I don't want a gun in the house around my children so I won't purchase one. But my child's friend's parents own a gun that I am unaware of. This is not the best scenario in my opinion and is worthy enough for me to push for anti-gun laws.
This is a hypothetical situation though. I myself am a fan of guns. I just never got around to acquiring a license. Also, I would never keep the ammo and gun in the same place. I think there should be laws for this. Not so much anti-guns, but rules to have parents make sure that they lock these things away separately.
