    We now have decades of data on the lingering effects of abortion, 3D ultrasounds that show the details of a human baby in utero, horrific cases and pictures of partial birth abortions, combined with a more educated public on this topic and its ethical implications. Thank goodness the tide is turning and that it is getting harder for the judicial system to turn away from very clear evidence of human life. It would seem that the old arguments of a woman’s rights and back alley abortion concerns are losing ground due to medical evidence and changing public opinion. Public awareness of the gruesomeness of this procedure has made those who would defend it seem out of touch with reality.
