Granholm to sign abortion ultrasound law, aide says

Skiing was great, Lack Placid was very nice. I look forward to spending more time in the Adirondacks.

Stumpe notified me of this story before I left for Spring Break. The story is not that interesting in itself, but it illustrates a common behavior exhibited by the extreme advocates of the unlimited abortion agenda.

Here's the reporter's concise summary of the proposed law:

"The new law does not require that ultrasounds be taken but says that if they are, women can see them."

The opposite would be *not* to let them see them. And, pray tell, did Kary Moss, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan support this open access to information? Of course not. She referred to it as a "barrier" to legal abortion. I suppose it's true that the more women who choose to see the ultrasounds, the more women will choose not to exercise their legal right to kill their babies. But is that something to be upset about? The essence of the irony here is that the law would give women the right to choose to receive information!

Ms. Moss said there are no suits planned at this time. The do have challenge on their hands to show it unconstitutional to let women have access to their own medical files, but, hey, this is the ACLU, just give them time.
