Questions about Prenatal Ultrasound and the Alarming Increase in Autism - by Caroline Rodgers

Questions about Prenatal Ultrasound and the Alarming Increase in Autism - by Caroline Rodgers

This article completely dismisses the vaccine-autism connection. The studies "disproving" this link were flawed and have been discredited. And the vaccine companies promised to not make any more vaccines with thermosil in them but are actually still using their stores of the the old recipes. I think when you have a perfectly normal child who gets their shots and then suddenly is not normal, you MUST conclude the shots did SOMETHING. Now, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Autism has many causes including both vaccines and ultrasounds or a combination of both. Maybe the damage from the ultrasound makes Baby vulnerable to damage from the vaccines. Don't know.

I do know that the vast majority of the time sonograms are done for purely frivolous reasons:

To see what sex the baby is.

To see when he is really due (like that can really be predicted! Babies come within a couple of weeks of their "due date" no matter what "age" the sonogram says they are.)

To make sure everything is OK. Now, ultrasounds don't make the baby healthy; they see if baby is already healthy. If he isn't what do you do about it? You get an abortion is what you do. That didn't cure the baby, it killed him. This is not a compassionate way to treat the handicapped!

To increase bonding with the parents or to reassure them. If parents are left to God's nature, the hormones involved in natural, non-induced birth will insure plenty of bonding. And if baby has a good heartbeat (Doppler's are a type of sonogram with much lower levels of sound and heat, but should still not be used anymore than necessary. My midwife uses it during the first couple of months and during labor but uses a fetascope the rest of the time to limit exposure) or is kicking around he is healthy. That picture doesn't tell you anything new.

The one good thing about sonograms:

Because "everyone" gets them and shares Baby's first picture, younger people have grown up seeing that that "thing" in the womb is a real, live baby. This is why the younger voters are increasingly pro-life.

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
