What’s wrong with this picture? Pro-life groups join pro-abortion groups to oppose the Ohio Heartbeat Bill

For the first time I can think of, pro-lifers are divided into three camps on a pro-life bill. Usually it’s just two, which is bad enough. I wrote on September 14 that both Ohio Right to Life and the Personhood people were actively opposing the Ohio Heartbeat Bill, which would ban abortion in Ohio from […]

New York Times laments “disappearing” abortion rights

A September 24 New York Times editorial entitled, “Where abortion rights are disappearing,” lamented the “spate” of new pro-life laws passed by state legislators “concocting new schemes” to make abortion go away. Yadda yadda. What interested me about the piece was a map and chart included by the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute. The amount of movement […]

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat Bills to ban partial-birth abortion in Michigan will soon be signed by Governor Snyder. The most noteworthy part of this article is that the reporter actually describes partial-birth abortion. How often does that happen?

Abortion proponent “thrilled” by an abortion on “Grey’s Anatomy”

One of many problems abortion proponents have is sending mixed messages about getting one.  Whether to act glib and risk offending normal sensibilities, or to act serious and risk humanizing the baby, that is the question. Maya at Feministing took the spectator-at-the coliseum approach earlier this week, saying she was “thrilled” and found it “refreshing” […]

Lunch Break: “Were It Not For Grace”

by LauraLoo I heard this song sung by Larnelle Harris for the first time this past LORD’s day while taking a beautiful autumn walk. Praise be to the LORD Almighty, more sovereign than all my sin!

Barry Lynn: Jesus cares more about helping the poor than about abortion

Let’s get this straight. Even though abortion is not mentioned in the Bible, it is obvious to these conservatives that not only should Christians not get one; the government should bar anyone from obtaining one. However, when the deep concern for the poor is commonly located in the same sacred text, it means absolutely nothing […]

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
