I'm surprised CBS News 4 out of Miami/Ft. Lauderdale included this tidbit in its piece on Gov. Jeb Bush's signing last week of a law regulating Florida's abortion mills:
One supporter on hand for Tuesday's signing was Dr. Randy Armstrong, an obstetrician-gynecologist in Hillsborough County who provides emergency room coverage at University Community Hospital.
Armstrong, who does not perform abortions (JLS comment: if abortions aren't bad, why note that?), said he has seen "and continues to see" the problems that result from lack of regulations of abortion clinics. In the last six months of 2004, nearly three dozen women were admitted into the hospital because of complications from second-trimester abortions.
I was also suprised when I first saw that article and posted on it. The fact that so many women are injured during "safe" abortions is normally the ghost it the machine for the media. A story that cries out for investigative journalism that will never happen.Posted by: Jeff Miller at June 4, 2005 12:02 PM
Thank you Jill for this wonderful blog. There certainly is power in blogging.
I understand that abortionist George Tiller has botched another abortion. This is the fourth time this year that a woman has been rushed to the Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, KS.

Did they also blather on and on about how rare this is? Or did they just mention it as relevant, the way it actually fits into the story?
I blogged about how badly Florida needs some improvement.Posted by: Christina at June 7, 2005 9:17 AM
