New Stanek column on WND: “Pro-abort PBA paradox”

When exactly is a pregnancy terminated? Abortion proponents attempting to answer that question should run into a problem. By trying to protect one flank, they’ve exposed another. To be consistent, the abortion industry’s definition of when a pregnancy begins should agree with its definition of when it ends. But the two don’t jibe. For over […]

Fire Thunder suspended; abortions banned on rez

This just in: The Oglala Sioux tribal council banned all abortions on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and suspended President Cecelia Fire Thunder on Tuesday, charging that she solicited donations on behalf of the tribe for a proposed abortion clinic without the council’s approval. And this was published in IndianCountry.com last week: Hat tip: Stacy […]

New Stanek column on WND: “The lunatic fringe goes mainstream”

Latter day feminists think abortion is not just fine, it’s holy. Wrote Debi Jackson, owner of Cincinnati Women’s Services abortion mill, in a web post recently: Imagine… that a woman may create a ceremony… to be performed during the abortion or afterwards with family and friends in attendance… She may have a circle of women […]

News of encouragement…

I received this today from a new pro-life friend on South Dakota’s Oglala rez. Apparently the Natives are restless with their president’s plan to launch an abortion mill on their land and are planning a protest. … Des Moines Register columnist Dave Yepsin says that Dem guv candidate Mike Bluoin’s party of choice and pro-life […]

Will we choke on the pill?

In a recent column, I connected the morning-after pill controversy with the larger issue of contraception. Basically, pro-lifers can’t oppose the MAP without opposing birth control pills, since they contain the same ingredients (female hormones) and, therefore, may both cause abortions – stop an embryo from implanting in the uterus. Pro-aborts have honed in on […]

New Stanek column on WND: “The biggest boobs”

According to its president, the National Breast Cancer Coalition has “revolutionized” public policy in the quest to eradicate breast cancer. NBCC has an odd way of running its revolution. On May 4, NBCC announced the Golden Boob Awards, to “highlight the biggest boobs of all – the organizations that are using breast cancer purely as […]

What’s wrong with sex selection?

From today’s Chicago Tribune: BADHOCHHI KALAN, India — This is the land of the vanishing girl, where 14 boys and seven girls attend 1st grade, where educational plays warn of a future with no women. A nearby midwife delivers one girl for every five boys. Villagers do not talk openly about why the number of […]

Snubbing the snubbers

There are unconfirmed reports that IL gubernatorial candidate Judy Baar Topinka indicated earlier this spring she didn’t need conservatives to win. Whether or not that’s true, we will likely find out, and this isn’t just whiny saber-rattling by IL conservatives. Nationally, conservatives are showing their displeasure with an aberrant president and legislature by walking and […]

New Stanek column on WND: “Vampires on campus”

There has been a surge in pro-abortion violence on college campuses this spring. Most recently, Professor Sally Jacobsen at Northern Kentucky University became so enraged by a display of little white crosses commemorating children lost to abortion that she incited her students to destroy it – in broad daylight with a newspaper photographer snapping away. […]

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
