Life in the Palm of Your Hand:
Handheld ultrasound machines smaller than a newborn and viewable on your Smart Phone may have a spectacular impact on the abortion debate.
The FDA is expected to approve the device soon. I'm gonna go on a hunch here and say that only qualified people will be permitted to use it (as should be the case), and you'll still need a modicum of privacy in a place the woman will be comfortable. But this certainly will make it possible to bring ultrasound technology to more women, to give them a chance to see their babies and know who it is they're considering having put to death -- before it's too late to change their minds.
