NY birth/abortion center hopes to “lessen stigma” of abortion

morrisonby Kelli

At a time when abortion rights are in jeopardy — Louisiana’s governor recently signed a bill that would close three of the state’s five clinics that offer abortions, Texas is likely to have only six clinics by September, because of a draconian new law, and other states are cracking down — fresh ideas like this might lessen the stigma of abortion….

Surprise! Court reinstates most of Texas’ new abortion restrictions

  • RH Reality Check has yet another post in which a child who was born alive and left to die in a dumpster is described as a “fetus.” Their Senior Legal Analyst Jessica Mason Pieklo has this description of local authorities prosecuting a woman who lied about her pregnancy after she left her child (born around 30 weeks gestation and breathing, according to the coroner) to die in a dumpster:

    The State of Indiana is prosecuting another woman for a failed pregnancy, this time charging a woman with felony neglect after a fetus was found in a dumpster. Prosecutors had originally considered charging the woman with feticide, like in the case of Bei Bei Shuai. Either way, the state has made it clear any pregnancy that does not result in a successful live birth will be viewed first and foremost as a probable crime, which is a terrifying reality for women in the state.

    However, this wasn’t a failed pregnancy and the reason the state didn’t charge her with feticide is because the child wasn’t a fetus. The evidence clearly suggests that Purvi Patel ordered abortion drugs online, took them, gave birth at her home, and then disposed of her 30-week child (who was born alive) in a dumpster. Pregnancies that don’t result in successful live births will only be viewed possible crimes if the mothers lie about their pregnancies and gestational ages, and toss their living children into dumpsters.

Conflicting claims: Inducing to save woman’s life same as abortion?

Did doctors in a country that bans abortion under any circumstances manage to terminate the pregnancy without violating the law?… On Monday, doctors removed Beatriz’s fetus — which had a severe defect that prevented the brain from developing — through an incision in her abdomen…. Yet the procedure was not an abortion, the health minister […]

Angelina Jolie has double mastectomy to lower cancer risk

My mother fought cancer for almost a decade and died at 56. She held out long enough to meet the first of her grandchildren and to hold them in her arms. But my other children will never have the chance to know her and experience how loving and gracious she was. We often speak of […]

Steyn: Media silence on abortion and infanticide reflects on America

In 2011, I wrote about mass murder at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion “clinic”: … A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale – and it barely makes the papers. Had he plunged his scissors into the spinal cord of a Democrat politician in Arizona, then The New York Times, ABC, CBS, […]
