Jivin J’s Life Links 1-31-11

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Here’s more evidence that greater access to morning-after pills/emergency contraceptive doesn’t work the way pro-choice organizations have been telling us it will. A policy in England to hand out free morning-after pills to teenage girls at pharmacies didn’t lower the pregnancy rate and increased the rate of STDs:They […]

New late-term, half-abortion scheme: Kill babies by lethal injection and nothing more

Revelations about the dangerous and dastardly practices of late-term abortionists, particularly on the East Coast (Brigham, Carhart, Gosnell), continue. Today Operation Rescue exposed yet another new way they are circumventing the system – this time only by killing babies by lethal injection and nothing more. This will force many pro-life obstetricians and hospitals into complicity […]

Quote of the Day 1-31-11

My goal is to shatter the illusion of objectivity far and wide, to affix a metaphorical consumer warning label on liberal news. Nobody should sit down to watch the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, for instance, expecting to receive “objective” information from a radical pro-abortion Upper West Side Manhattan liberal. ~Nicole Coulter, reflecting on […]

Quote of the Day 1-30-11

A good person obtains favor from the LORD, but the LORD condemns everyone who schemes. A person cannot stand firm on a foundation of wickedness, and the roots of righteous people cannot be moved. ~ Proverbs 12:2-3, God’s Word translation

Video: The most shocking 4-minute abortion debate you will ever see

On January 7 I posted a video produced The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, which lasted only a couple hours on YouTube. CBR’s shocking, graphic video juxtaposed a soothing video produced by the Northland Family Planning Centers, a late-term abortion chain of 3 mills in Michigan, with the reality of abortion. CBR’s video got such a […]

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
