Untermenschen

Reader Joe P. drew my attention to this photo taken in April 1945 of Jewish children and a baby in a mass grave at Nordhausen, Germany (courtesy of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum). Joe compared that Holocaust to our modernday Holocaust of babies, writing that the Nazis called Jewish people “untermenschen,” translated “subhumans.” Interestingly, when […]

See the rooster crow…

Rep. Mike Castle (D-DE), who sponsored the embryonic stem cell bill in the House, bragged at a press conference Wednesday he knew precisely how members were going to vote beforehand. Except he didn’t. Hard lobbying by pro-life groups peeled away some of his votes at the last minute. HR 810 still passed, but it didn’t […]

Hillary & Howard lie about Bush abortion stats

John Cusey of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus writes today: Hillary Clinton and Howard Dean continue to promote the myth that the number of abortions has increased since President Bush was elected. Howard Dean said last weekend on Meet the Press, “You know that abortions have gone up 25% since George Bush was President?”, and yesterday […]

Mother covers incest by getting daughter abortion

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that the alleged rape of a 17-year-old by her stepfather was covered up by the girl’s mother, who took the girl for an abortion so authorities couldn’t perform a paternity test on the baby. Abortion is a sexual perpetrator’s best friend….

Pro-aborts make startling discoveries…. after abortion

Former Ms. Magazine editor Jennifer Baumgardner writes an enlightening piece in today’s fairfieldweekly.com admitting that young women consider the mainstream abortion movement haggard (“stale”) and out-of-touch (“blank faces” when confronted about “the lack of emotional resources” for post-abortive women). Baumgardner tells of the “innovations” pro-aborts have created to connect with women, such as establishing a […]

One of the tricky parts about medical abortion is that these drugs work all the way through a pregnancy, although they become less effective and the rate of complication rises in the course of pregnancy. So it is not recommended to have a second-trimester medical abortion without the supervision of a doctor. It’s not as if someone couldn’t try. But it is certainly a risk. It’s not happening, but theoretically it could.

There’s also a deeper question here. If you know there is a risk someone can misuse a drug, what do you do about it? One of the things that people who advocate for medical abortions say is that there are drugs like Tylenol on the shelves of every pharmacy that anyone could buy and overdose on and kill themselves. You can buy bleach. It doesn’t mean we make those substances unavailable.

What do you do with the possibility that women might misuse these drugs? Do you take it away from them? Or do you trust them?

~ New York Times writer Emily Bazelon, responding to the question, “Could the women who are requesting abortion drugs from Women on Web lie about how far along in their pregnancies they are?”, as quoted in “Behind the Cover Story: Emily Bazelon on Medical Abortion Through the Mail,” The 6th Floor, September 1
