LA Times: The constitutionality of Roe

The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday on a hearing held June 23 in the US Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution re: the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade. That these questions are being openly asked and debated in the US Senate is profound….

Embrace the life God offers

Dr. Frank forwarded this column, published in Canada’s Western Catholic Reporter, June 20. There is no Internet version available: Embrace the life God offers By Mark Pickup Sitting closer to the end of my life than its beginning, I find myself wishing I’d had more children. Deep into the sorrow and pain of progressive multiple […]

This ain’t your sweet little ole blue-haired neighbor’s pro-life club any more

The inference in this comment on Rich Miller’s blog… But now Stanek and her allies have given Madigan a reason to strike back at them. If Speaker Madigan makes life miserable for pro-life forces over the next few years (and I suspect he will) they have no one to blame for Madigan’s opposition to them […]

Miller’s blog mob

My, my. Rich Miller’s blog readers are easily antagonized. For their responses to my post yesterday about Michael Madigan (and my response to theirs), go here.

The Pro-Life Case for Rudy Giuliani for Prez

Interesting read on RedState.org. Meanwhile, NY Gov. George Pataki, who also has national aspirations, hasn’t indicated whether he’ll sign a pedophile thrill pill bill into law (making the morning after pill available over-the-counter, even to young girls) that the NY legislature approved earlier this week. Pataki’s reportedly feeling the pressure from both sides. It’s interesting […]

Operation Rescue West reports that not one but two abortion mills owned by Tammy Sobieski are being closed. Sobieski’s WomanCare abortion clinic in West Palm Beach has been evicted, allegedly because she misrepresented her plans for the site to the owner. Poor Tammy. She must have been preoccupied trying to cover for her lies, because […]

Baby, baby

Britney Spears released a new single June 14, “Someday (I Will Understand),” a song she wrote to her prenatal baby. Baby upstages Britney in the music video, stealing every scene in which s/he appears inside Mom’s beautiful, 5-months-pregnant belly. Words to song on page 2.

Who loves you, baby?

Reuters reported today: The most-used Internet site, has shut down all its user-created Internet chat rooms amid concerns that adults were using the sites to try to have sex with minors….

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
