An ultrasound machine that fits in your pocket!

It’s coming. GE says it should be out in 2010 (video below):

The Star Trek Tricorder, a device that allows medics to check their patients in the field in the sci-fi TV show, took a step closer to becoming reality today thanks to a new device being shown off by General Electric in the US.

The device, which is a cross between a mobile phone and an iPod was shown at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco on Tuesday.

Called Vscan, the clamshell designed gadget is aimed at doctors, and possibly would-be parents who could use it in their office or in the field to check the progress of unborn babies or other medical instances, rather than sending their patients to a specialist department for a scan. [source]

Imagine standing on the sidewalk outside of an abortion clinic and being able to show a confused mother a live video feed of her baby right there that very instant.

The facts are on our side. It’s a unique, individual human life in the womb. We just need to bring our society to face this reality. What an amazing tool to help us do just that.

We need to support this new device with all our fervor! It could change the face of abortion in the world!

Ironic that this comes from the company that’s performing drug testing with human embryonic stem cells.
