Nothing would ever be the same after seeing that sonogram

Published on

The image flashes in my mind’s eye like a scene from a movie. I vividly recall the visage of my baby on the screen—an image that was captured in a photo that I treasured. I could see in that image my mother’s smile, re-drawn in the face of my child.

The sonographer remarked that she could see the baby playing with her toes. In that moment, my motherhood became real to me. I fell instantly and madly in love with the image on the screen.

An ultrasound changed my life—and documented the life of my preborn child. After seeing that sonogram, nothing would ever be the same. I would be forever connected with the child I would give birth to, to the sweet little girl I would call my own.

I want every pregnant woman to have an opportunity for the same experience. Women deserve to be informed completely about the development of their unborn child. An ultrasound is part of the critical information needed for a woman to know clearly the impact that an abortion would have. No woman should be deprived of such valuable knowledge.

It should be apparent that failing to disclose such information to a pregnant woman is highly suspect. It places a cloak of secrecy around the entire abortion process.

Of course, it should not be surprising that abortion centers want to operate under cover of darkness. Each abortion is the taking of an innocent, unrepeatable human life. It is quite hard to argue for “choice” when the face of the victim appears on the screen.


Daniel Miller is responsible for nearly all of National Right to Life News' political writing.

With the election of Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, Daniel Miller developed a deep obsession with U.S. politics that has never let go of the political scientist. Whether it's the election of Joe Biden, the midterm elections in Congress, the abortion rights debate in the Supreme Court or the mudslinging in the primaries - Daniel Miller is happy to stay up late for you.

Daniel was born and raised in New York. After living in China, working for a news agency and another stint at a major news network, he now lives in Arizona with his two daughters.
