Should states require doctors, as a matter of informed consent, to provide 4D ultrasounds to all patients considering elective abortions before such abortions can be performed? Your analysis of this topic must address competing perspectives on the personhood of the fetus and evidence related to the value of ultrasounds as measures of informed consent. Note that these bills are sometimes referred to as Personhood Amendments. In order for you to address this topic adequately, you must objectively consider opposing viewpoints on this issue. You must also discuss how biblical principles may be brought to bear in the debate over abortion, informed consent, and fetal personhood.
