If you talk about pushing people to see something meant to evoke emotions when they need to make good, rational decisions... same.

And what are these good rational decisions?

u/TheExaltedNoob Aug 18 '22

Ah, i think i went about this wrong, better summary:

Those decisions are theirs to make, what i want does not enter into it. That is because i respect other peoples autonomy, which the people pushing ultrasounds failed to do.

A rational decision like using contraceptives instead of using abortion as one?

Might be a little late?

I mean by that point it is a little late, that thing is big enough to emancipate. But you get my point right?

What i am missing is a connection between the reasonable steps to prevent such situations (better education, better availability of contraceptives) and making someone already in this situation suffer.

How "big" this "thing" is, i cannot say. Could be an elephant fetus, could be an example picture, i'm not a doctor.

[Edit] To make this clear: i was taking the narrative of "someone wanting an abortion is made to look at ultrasounds" as believable, since i've heard it before from credible sources. That was my whole point, how late abortions should be ok was not part of it.

Ummm.... why exactly does it evoke emotions?

u/TheExaltedNoob Aug 18 '22

I cannot help you there. As someone not interested in reproducing, it does not do so for me, i have only heard multiple times that it does for others.

Totally late to the thread, but it definitely evokes my emotions. My son just turned 1 and was very wanted (IVF). I remember seeing him at that stage of development (about 10 weeks) in an ultrasound and being astounded at how much they move around. I was expecting a stagnant little peanut thing but instead he was wiggling, moving his tiny arms around and such, kicking and stretching, not all that different from how a newborn moves and wiggles. Blew my mind, and I already just loved him so much.

Becoming a mother messes with your brain. I look at this pic now and it makes me sad because I have this urge to want to adopt it. I'd never dream of not supporting reproductive rights. Abortion still makes me sad, though.
