Ultrasound

Pro-choice activist describes (and laments) the effect of ultrasound on pregnant couples

By Sarah Terzo

Pro-choice author Lisa M Mitchell writes:

“For some parents, the ability to see fetal parts [in the ultrasound] – especially the beating heart – and to see the fetus sucking its thumb, kicking, excreting, and responding to external stimuli may demonstrate that the fetus is aware of its surroundings and has the potential for or actually possesses distinctive human consciousness and personhood.”

Lisa M. Mitchell. Baby’s First Picture: Ultrasound and the Politics of Fetal Subjects (Toronto: University of Toronto Press Inc., 2001) p.6.

Mitchell laments this fact throughout the book.
