New Stanek WND column: “People magazine: Don’t stop, get a shot”

An article in the Feb. 5 issue of People magazine demonstrated the persistence of liberals to march us all down the path of free love to our deaths. I don’t understand why young people would trust the ideology of those who sought their demise before they were born, but here’s one: 33-year-old abortion survivor (which […]

Abortion clinic director: “I am pro-life”

Calling herself the “pro-life executive director” of the Emma Goldman Clinic abortion mill in Iowa City, Iowa, Karen Kubby took the occasion of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade to reflect in a Jan. 25 opinion piece in the Iowa City Press-Citizen. Highlights: I am pro-life. I believe strongly in the value of living beings […]

US News & Incorrect World Report

The Jan. 29-Feb. 5 issue of U. S. News & World Report included this in an article by Lewis Lord, “A conqueror more lethal than the sword” : Experts believe that in 1492 perhaps 10 million people lived above the Rio Grande – twice as many as may have inhabited the British Isles at that […]

People Magazine: Don’t stop, get a shot

The Feb. 5 issue of People magazine included a story about actress Marissa Jaret Winokur who, according to the teaser, “learned the cause of her cervical cancer and now makes sure other women know how to prevent it.” The sole cause of cervical cancer is human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted disease. Winokur contracted cervical […]

“I wish my sister were a convicted murderer”

Bobby Schindler has a compellng post on ProLifeBlogs that juxtaposes media responses to the 34-minute execution of convicted killer Angel Diaz in Florida to the 14-day execution of his sister, Terri Schiavo. Here is one, along with the photo from the post: The Ledger (Associated Press), 12-17-06 Article title: “Doctors: Botched execution likely slow, painful” […]

Why the State of IL will lose if it fights the Choose Life license plate decision

Eric Zorn and I have continued the conversation on Choose Life license plates on his blog, which led to an important point. Zorn said: The argument against your proposed plate — again an argument I do not buy — is not that it’s one too many plates, but that it contains too much self expression […]

Choose honesty

Ah, history, it’s so fun to revise! As quoted by Eric Zorn in his Chicago Tribune column today, Rep. Jack Franks would have us believe that his epiphany to single-handedly halt approval of specialty plates in Illinois came coincidentally when the Choose Life license plate bill was introduced in 2002. Then Franks should explain why […]

New Stanek WND column, “The AP’s fetus frenzy”

You would have a difficult time figuring out Barack Obama supports infanticide by the Jan. 17 Associated Press story entitled, “Obama record may be gold mine for critics.” Each of five times the AP referred to Obama’s votes as state senator against legislation to stop infanticide, it softened the blow to make it unintelligible to […]

Parental notification coincidences

The IL Supreme Court issued parental notification rules last September 20, instructing AG Lisa Madigan to tell a federal judge to lift the injunction on the 1995 law.  I had a feeling Madigan was stalling to give Rep. John Fritchey’s repeal bill time to work through the system. So four months later – coincidentally – […]

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
