  • The Guttmacher Institute has a study on OB/GYNs who planned on performing abortions once they started practicing but didn’t:
  • … The majority were unable to provide abortions because of formal and informal policies imposed by their private group practices, employers and hospitals, as well as the strain that doing so might put on relationships with superiors and coworkers….

    Restrictions on abortion provision sometimes were made explicit when new physicians interviewed for a job, but sometimes became apparent only after they had joined a practice or institution. Several physicians mentioned the threat of violence as an obstacle to providing abortions, but few considered this the greatest deterrent.

  • The OK Senate has joined the OK House in overriding Gov. Brad Henry’s veto of a bill which requires women seeking abortions to provide basic information.
  • The Telegraph goes over some the UK’s recently released abortion stats.
  • Apparently, one of American Idol competitor Crystal Bowersox’s unreleased songs is about abortion. From the Lake County News-Sun:
  • “This is quite a life you’ve laid in front of me,” she sings among layers of strings, mandolin, percussion, music box, saxophone and backup vocals. “You don’t want it, so let’s just throw it out.” It’s the one track on which Bowersox sounds like the powerhouse she’s proved herself to be on national TV.
