    Brilliantly written and subtle article. I absolutely agree with him----as a professional scientist with numerous publications---that this is a complete abuse of science.

    I've always been struck by how medical imaging techniques that allow pictures of foetuses to be made have played directly into the anti abortion camp, because such images automatically promote a very strong emotional and instinctive reaction.

    I've known some mothers who wish abortion could be legal 30+ years after birth. icon_lol.gif
