Ultrasound has become a new front in the battle over abortion, according to a report in the NY Times.

Anti-abortion groups argue that sonograms can help persuade women to preserve pregnancies, and 20 states have enacted laws that encourage or require the use of ultrasound.

Alabama is one of three states, along with Louisiana and Mississippi, that require abortion providers to offer women a chance to peer inside the womb.

Recently, Oklahoma's Republican-controlled Legislature enacted a law mandating that women be presented with an ultrasound image and with a detailed oral description of the embryo or fetus.
