The defendant is NOT permitted to discuss the procedures practiced by this charming “physician.” That is, he’s not allowed to tell the jury WHY he did it. Sounds like a REEEEELY fair trial to me! “Just shut up and plead guilty.” Of course if he were a TERRORIST, nothing would be off limits! Poor guy should have claimed to be a Muslim.
I don’t pity the abortionist, but the defendent has admitted to the crime and it sounded calculated, not spur of the moment while an abortion was being performed. He is likely going to prison where he should be. This is not how we do things in this country.
The Defense should call an expert witness to discuss the procedures...perhaps Dr. Bernard Nathanson.
