by National Catholic Register thinking about how today’s American political scene might have been different had Senator Ted Kennedy held onto his pro-life beliefs: Kennedy’s family legacy, his impregnable position in MA (he won more than 60% of the vote the year after Chappaquiddick) and his national prominence rendered him immune from the pressures other […]

Get ready to rumble: Carhart’s mill is da place to be this weekend

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?
