Exactly who perpetrated the fatal abortion doesn’t seem to pique the interest of those who want to hang her death around her distant-relative-by-marriage’s neck.

What I find particularly fascinating is that amid the obsession over Ann Keenan (obsession likely to arise again should [Mitt] Romney aim again for the White House) there is a blithe obliviousness of “safe and legal” abortion deaths.

In fact, one politician — Margo Davidson, a Democrat and Pennsylvania State Representative — lost her support from Planned Parenthood after going public about how her cousin, Semika Shaw, died a wretched death after an abortion by notorious Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell. This is going beyond merely ignoring safe-n-legal abortion deaths and into the realm of punishing the survivors.

Is it really women’s deaths that bother abortion-rights activists so much, or is it something else?

~ Christina Dunigan, reflecting on abortion advocates’ lack of concern for women dying from legal abortions, “Which Abortion Deaths Matter?,” Real Choice, October 8

Note: Recall Gosnell’s gruesome operation was “only caught by accident, when police raided his offices to seize evidence of his illegal prescription selling,” not thanks to abortion clinic inspections or regulations.

Here is Semika’s story:
