  • The Los Angeles Times has an article on how NM abortionist Curtis Boyd is apparently stepping up to fill abortionist George Tiller’s shoes by aborting more unborn children in the 3rd trimester:
  • Curtis Boyd, an Albuquerque doctor, recently announced on his website that, in response to Tiller’s death, he had begun performing 3rd-trimester abortions. Boyd, 72, also announced that he had hired two CA physicians, Susan Robinson and Shelley Sella, who used to work with Tiller on a rotating basis….

    After Tiller was murdered by Scott Roeder, who faces sentencing April 1, the National Abortion Federation began asking members who already provide 2nd-trimester abortions to consider extending their practices to include 3rd-trimester abortions.

    See Boyd in this 2003 video from Voices of Choice:

  • At Real Clear Politics, Jay Cost has done his research into which Democrats are likely nay votes on health care reform and which of the Democrats might be part of Stupak’s group.
  • NC’s Wake County has re-instated the county’s policy of including abortion in their health insurance plan.
  • Bone marrow stem cells were used to treat mice with asthma.
  • Americans United for Life will be using print advertising in the districts of some Democrats who originally voted in favor of the Stupak Amendment to encourage them to vote no on health care reform.
  • Self-described liberal Mark Shields has a decent column on abortion:
  • Of all the arguments in support of legalized abortion made by elected legislators, the one that bothers me the most is, “While I’m personally opposed to abortion, I cannot vote to impose my views on others…”
    This represents the ultimate privatization of beliefs. Thank goodness 19th Century abolitionists did not use this logic to explain their unwillingness to vote to outlaw slavery.
    Every day, liberals, in whose ranks I count myself, urge legislators to vote to impose our views and beliefs on others when it involves enacting a progressive tax system, guaranteeing gay rights, protecting the environment, or through the federal government, providing health care to millions of Americans who do not presently have it.
    Some now argue that government can involve itself in social morality – such as ending racial segregation – but butt out when it comes to personal moral decisions. This leads to the kind of convoluted liberalism that, as Fr. Thomas J. Reese, the Jesuit author, has observed, holds that “government should no longer ban topless dancing, but should ensure that the dancer works in a smoke-free environment.”
