Thanks for Prolife Legislation, Missouri Legislature

Missouri Governor allowed SB 793 to become law yesterday and thanks be to GOD for that. That law is prolife legislation as it requires abortion clinics to comply with providing ultrasounds and to allow the woman considering an abortion to see the ultrasound and hear the baby's heartbeat. I got the info from an article in the Columbia {Missouri] Tribune today entitled "Missouri Governor lets abortion [regulating] law take effect" written by David Lieb for the AP. Of course he being indoctrinated by journalism schools to be prodeath tried to put a spin on the news and left out the word regulating but I added it in since that defines the actual bill.
I quote from that article :
"It also requires abortion providers to offer women the chance to view an ultrasound and listen to the heartbeat of the fetus. And they will have to supply a state-produced brochure proclaiming: "The life of each human being begins at conception. Abortion will terminate the life of a separate, unique, living human being."
Statistically, when women see their baby in the womb and it is a tiny baby appearing as a baby in human form by the time they miss their period, and hear the heartbeat that begins at 10 days after fertilization, they will not kill their baby.
Especially 3D ultrasound has been one of the most powerful, most persuasive tools against abortion ever, because it shows the babies' faces. And shows them sucking their thumbs if they are doing that when ultrasound is done. An ultrasound is not invasive or painful. It consists of a Doppler being placed on the outside of the woman's abdomen and a conducting medium --jelly sort of--on top of skin that conducts the sound waves, sort of like sonar into the womb. The sound waves bounce into the womb and pinpoint the baby and then bounce back with info that is interpreted by the computer into a digital image much like digital photography. It is literally a window into the womb.
I am grateful for Missouri Legislature passing this law and for the Governor allowing it to become law. It will save lives of Missourians.
