(Prolifer)ations 3/31/08

I sure have missed my (Prolifer)ations posts. I launched (Prolifer)ations a few months back to spotlight good info gleaned from other pro-life blogs, because there’s no way I can keep up with all the news. But I kept running short of time to research, and so (Prolifer)ations faded from “site,” although not from mind. But […]

Hannity’s America tonight last night: Obama/Planned Parenthood

FYI, tonight calls secretly recorded by UCLA pro-lifers. UPDATE, 8a: Hannity combined an exposé on Barack Obama’s radical support of abortion with an exposé on Planned Parenthood’s willingness to take money to abort black babies, since Obama supports PP. The segment was very good except on one key issue…

Pfleger welcomes Wright

Welcome, Michelle Malkin readers. Michelle linked to my March 5 column, her post yesterday on Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s surprise appearance Friday night at Pfleger’s southside Chicago Catholic church, St. Sabina’s. What a nonsurprise. Click on graphic below for link to see the reception Wright received: Houston Chronicle…

New poll/Old poll

The new poll question is up: Should the international community boycott the Beijing Olympic Games due to China’s recent crackdown against Tibet and/or its forced one-child-per-family policy? Responses to last week’s poll surprised me. I didn’t expect so many to think aborting mothers should be considered criminals. Perhaps this shows true thoughts of pro-lifers; perhaps […]

Weekend question

Last week came the first noticeable hurdle to Barack Obama’s race to the White House: his pastor, Jeremiah Wright. News organizations held their collective finger on the replay button showing sermon clips from “best of” videos Wright sells at his Trinity United Church of Christ bookshop. In these Wright displays himself as an anti-American black […]

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
