Searches: Michael J. New, Tay-Sachs, Lysol douches, and more

Somebody wanted Michael J. New. He's the researcher who very adeptly picked apart the New York Times's slipshod reporting on the effects of parental involvement laws on teen pregnancy and abortion rates.

Somebody was looking for a perfectly innocent electrical engineer named Dr. Nabil Ghaly. Imagine their shock when they got stuff on this guy. I hope some eyes were opened. And, Dr. Ghaly, good luck with your retirement!

Belkis Gonzalez (pictured) remains a popular search, though probably not a popular person. She's the owner of a seedy Florida abortion mill, and facing possible charges for putting a live-born baby in a biohazard bag and throwing it onto the roof to die.

Somebody was looking for a Kabacy in Oregon. All I know about is Planned Parenthood abortionist and child-porn collector George Elliott Kabacy. A real piece of work.

I've gathered some of the best abortion videos on the web.

I have a lot on Barack Obama and the babies that get left to die. Not just in Illinois. Babies that Barack Obama doesn't think need their own doctor, because that would "... burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion."

Lysol douche ad are a perennial favorite. And they might go a long way toward explaining the Lysol abortion stories, on two fronts. First of all, maybe some of those "abortions" were actually messed-up douches, attempts to reinvigorate the marriage, per the ads. Second of all, if something is known to kill germs (Killing germs is a good thing, right?), and it's touted by experts as healthy to put into your body, how could putting a little more of it in a bit deeper be that much of a problem? I could see some befuddled, anxious woman thinking that.

I have information here about abortion in the 1940s.

Yes, Barack Obama supports third trimester abortions.

Maria Lira was a college student killed by a safe and legal abortion in 1974.

Somebody wanted to know about Tay-Sachs and avoiding abortion. Here is information about a program to help people who carry the gene for Tay-Sachs to avoid marrying in the first place -- reducing the births of children with the fatal genetic disorder by 90% without resorting to abortion. The National Tay-Sachs & Allied Diseases Association provides support for parents. I haven't found a site that specifically supports parents carrying to term after a prenatal diagnosis of Tay-Sachs, but there are folks who have faced equally daunting news at Be Not Afraid, Carry to Term with a Negative Prenatal Diagnosis, Perinatal Hospice, and Prenatal Partners for Life. Researchers are looking into diverse strategies as gene therapy, multiple-treatment approaches, and cord blood transplants. Prayers for whoever is making this search.
