  • William Saletan has continued his piece on how pro-choice groups in Florida lobbied against abortion clinic regulations and how the lack of regulations allowed shoddy abortion clinics to stay open. In light of the Gosnell case, it really shows how abortion activists are all talk when it comes their claims about wanting abortion to be “safe”:

    The third scandal was worse still. More scrupulous abortion providers who considered the clinic unsavory had never filed a complaint or spoken out against it. A few months before the Herald article appeared, pro-choice activists who privately disdained the clinic had rallied to its premises to resist a pro-life blockade and to present a united pro-choice front to the media.

    The cover-up effort extended even to the Herald story. In a letter representing three other clinic operators, Patricia Windle [pictured left] had asked the Herald’s publisher to sit on the story until after the special session. Windle called the Dadeland clinic “wretched” but warned [reporter Deborah] Sontag that “we don’t want to give the hysterics weapons.” She argued, as Sontag put it in her article, that “pro-choice advocates must maintain a hard line: that a woman is safer when abortion is legal. To acknowledge that in some instances women are still not so safe is to dilute the argument, to hand something over to the other side.

  • 2 doctors in India have been sentenced to 2 years in prison for carrying out a sex-selection abortion. It appears the only reason they were caught was because they said the child was female when he was actually a male. This angered the family desiring a male child.
  • Legislation regulating abortion clinics which perform 1st-trimester abortions is headed for a vote in Virginia.
  • An illegal abortionist in Botswana who killed a woman is defending herself by saying her illegal abortion practice is safe as long as the women don’t lie about how far along they are.
