The Planned Parenthood in Stockton, California, evidently subscribes to the agricultural theory of embryology. It's not a baby, it's a rice cake!
An analysis of Barack Obama's promise to Planned Parenthood (that the first thing he'd do as POTUS is sign the "Freedom of Choice Act") notes that this one stroke of the pen would likely raise abortion rates in America 20%. Explain, please, how this constitutes "prevention".
Some people know just enough to be dangerous. Womensgrid laments how "murky" the law is in Northern Ireland regarding abortion. Alas, she laments, women suffer because they can't just go rid themselves of their fetuses when they're distressed about being pregnant. What she doesn't realize is that Dr. Alec Bourne, whose case she cites, wasn't as enamored as she is of on-demand abortion. In fact, Bourne later wrote, "Those who plead for an extensive relaxation of the law [against abortion] have no idea of the very many cases where a woman who, during the first three months, makes a most impassioned appeal for her pregnancy to be 'finished,' later, when the baby is born, is thankful indeed that it was not killed while still an embryo. During my long years in practice I have had many a letter of the deepest gratitude for refusing to accede to an early appeal." (A. Bourne, A Doctor's Creed: The Memoirs of a Gynecologist, London, 1963) Pray for the rest of poor Dr. Bourne's soul. He must be tormented at the thought of what he unwittingly helped to unleash. He never wanted abortion on demand, but that's what his ill-thought-out attempt at compassion ended up producing. (And, of course, as is so often the case in blogs like womensgrid, comments are closed; it's not a good idea to open your mind too far, is it? You might realize the world isn't the way you think it is.)
