  • The Durango Herald covered a protest at Mercy Regional Medical Center, a Catholic hospital which has Planned Parenthood abortionist Richard Grossman as a member of its medical staff:

    Grossman, who writes a monthly column for the Herald called “Population Matters!,” said he respects the group’s right to demonstrate.

    “I honor their beliefs,” he said, “I don’t agree with them.”

    And how exactly does he honor pro-life beliefs?

  • Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocates plan to sue to prevent North Carolina’s informed consent law from taking effect:[House Majority Leader Paul] Stam said he isn’t surprised that certain groups are planning a lawsuit. “If you read abortion case law, half of them are Planned Parenthood suing over something,” he said.

  • It’s amazing what years of abortion advocacy can do. In 20 years, at least 5 women in Maryland have died from anesthesia-related issues during abortions yet now is the first time abortion clinics will be regulated in the state: 

    Under procedures drafted by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the state would for the first time regulate clinics that perform surgical abortions, said spokeswoman Karen Black. Facilities that offer only abortion pills, and physician’s offices that perform occasional abortions would not be affected.

    The department has no listing or data on abortion clinics because they have never been regulated, Black said.

    This year, lawmakers in Virginia approved regulations for abortion clinics, and officials in Pennsylvania and Kansas took similar steps.

    It is estimated that about 20 sites in Maryland perform surgical abortions. 5 of the sites are in Montgomery County.

    “We don’t know where the sites are unless we look in the Yellow Pages,” Black said.
