3D and 4D Ultrasound: Friend and Foe

The new 3D and 4D ultrasounds can be a powerful tool for life, as they allow parents to see and bond with their unborn children.

But they can also be a tool for eugenecists, who want to use the new technology to identify ailing fetuses and target them for abortion.

Overall, abortion-rights activists tend to view the ultrasounds with animosity, as though truth itself is rallying against them. And it's their gut horror of anything that helps mothers bond with their unborn children that leads me to conclude that this new technology is going to be beneficial in the long run to families.
