  • Saskatchewan’s College of Physicians and Surgeons recently revised guidelines say that pro-life doctors must refer patients seeking abortions to another physician:

    The new introduction to the guideline is much clearer, saying doctors who won’t perform the abortion must tell the patient up-front and refer them to another physician who will give them all the tools they need to make an informed decision.

    “Any physician who is unable to be involved in the further care and management of any patient when termination of the pregnancy might be contemplated should inform the patient and make an expeditious referral to another available physician,” the preamble reads.

  • Planned Parenthood’s Stuart Schear doesn’t have much to say about Live Action’s tapes. At least he’s staying on message, regardless of how inaccurate that message is:One such video resulted in the firing of a PP employee in New Jersey. But in all other cases, the videos are “heavily edited and manipulated,” said PP spokesman Stuart Schear.

  • A study has shown the benefits of operating on unborn children with spina bifida while they’re still in the womb:

    A new study in the New England Journal of Medicine says that if a baby is operated on while still in the uterus, the most serious complications of the worst form of spina bifida, myelomeningocele, can be lessened.

    A clinical trial of 158 women found that brain malformations were reversed in one-third of the fetuses and that almost half the babies could eventually walk without crutches.
