    Despite the fact that four women in California have died from infections related to the use of mifepristone also known as RU 486, leading advocates of abortion are denouncing calls to take the potentially fatal drug off the market.

    2 sides mark anniversary of Roe v. Wade with marches in S.F. Thousands of protesters on both sides of the abortion issue clashed in San Francisco in rival demonstrations Saturday, the 32nd anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion. In dueling marches, about 6,000 antiabortion activists in the Walk for Life West Coast were jeered and harangued by about 3,000 advocates for abortion rights, some waving wire hangers. Walk for Life organizers Dolores Meehan and Eva Muntean said they knew holding an antiabortion rally in the liberal bastion of San Francisco would certainly spark outrage....

    HELENA (AP) _ A bill that would criminalize killing or injuring a fetus sparked a fierce debate over abortion at a legislative hearing Tuesday, despite assertions by its sponsor that it had nothing to do with terminating a pregnancy. Rep. Penny Morgan, R-Billings, said her bill was meant to address violence against pregnant women and get justice for the unborn children harmed or killed in the process, such as in the Laci Peterson case in California. ``This is a bigger problem than people have ever realized,'' she told the House Judiciary Committee. Opponents called her House Bill 231 a thinly...

    You may have heard the story of the time four decades ago when President Lyndon Johnson invited reporters to his ranch for dinner. Since his press secretary Bill Moyers had seminary training, LBJ asked him to say grace—and when the designated prayer spoke softly, requested that he speak up. Mr. Moyers replied, "I wasn't talking to you, Mr. President." The focal point of that anecdote for some is LBJ's arrogance—but the late president was right. Public prayer, whether in church or at the dinner table, has two audiences, one on earth and one in heaven. Prayer tells God what He...

    Ten years after the bloody Brookline clinic attacks, one doctor explains why she still performs abortions.Ten years ago this month, John Salvi sprayed bullets into two Brookline abortion clinics, killing two people and wounding five. Since then, the number of doctors willing to perform abortions has dwindled, increasing the workload for those remaining. One local obstetrician and gynecologist, whose clinic asked that she withhold her name for safety reasons, now performs as many as 10 abortions a day, twice a week.

    For Republicans, Social Security has been the untouchable third rail, at least until President Bush promised reformation by transformation. For Democrats, the third rail has been abortion - no exceptions, no restrictions, no compromise. Now some Democrats sound as if they might be willing to alter their fundamentalist position on abortion in order to stop their electoral hemorrhaging and start winning elections again. Could they be serious? In a Dec. 23 New York Times story headlined "Democrats Weigh De-emphasizing Abortion as an Issue," several prominent Democrats suggest their party should at least open its doors to abortion opponents and make...

    The following quote from Patrick Gray, in 'Aborton Rhetoric & Common Sense," appeared in 'Touchtstone,' Apr. 2004 "...anyone who defends the practice of abortion must posit a state of limbo, a literal no-man's land somewhere between life and death, between human and nonhuman, inhabited exclusively by embryos and fetuses." Superstition is the rejection of common sense and the corruption of reality. It's belief in the whimsy, and wishful thinking. It's the redescription of reality in order that its' adherents can believe in their own fanciful conceits. Because adherents of abortion must redescribe and even deny reality in order to...

    A Small Success at the Washington Post! Last week the Washington Post ran a three-part series on Maternal Homicide and Domestic Violence that was an example of writing (it didn’t qualify as “journalism”) that appealed more to the emotions than the intellect. But this time around, we were ready. Thanks to a cooperative effort among several groups, we hit a home run! On Saturday, the Post ran two excellent letters to the editor – see below. And then on Sunday, the WP Ombudsman Michael Getler devoted one-third of his weekly column to a critique of the series – again, see...

    Recent Poll Reveals Most Americans Think Abortion Hurts Women CHICAGO, November 26, 2004 ( - A recent nationwide survey conducted by Wirthlin Worldwide has found that a majority of Americans believe that abortion is "almost always bad" for women. The findings reflect the earlier findings of an Elliot Institute poll, which found that a majority of Americans believe abortion makes women's lives worse. The poll of 1,001 Americans, conducted on behalf of Americans United for Life, found that 61 percent felt that "abortion is almost always a bad thing for a woman," whereas only 23 percent said it was almost...

    There is an item on the Senate's legislative calendar of which I was recently reminded by a good friend. The bill is S. 1019, the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, and was introduced by Sen. Mike DeWine (R.-Ohio) on May 7, 2003. In his introduction of the bill, Sen. DeWine noted, "In about half of the States today, 26, if you commit a crime of violence against a pregnant woman and her unborn baby dies, you can be punished for the violence against both the mother and the unborn child. But, tragically, if you commit a Federal crime of violence...

    The National Organization for Women is backing away from comments an official made on the decision to charge Scott Peterson with two murders in the deaths of his wife and unborn child. The furor came as the parents of the murdered Modesto, Calif., woman broke their silence to say how much they missed their daughter and hoped "the person" who had killed her would be brought to justice. The controversy was touched off on the weekend when Marva Stark, president of a NOW chapter in New Jersey, said she feared the double-murder charge could strengthen efforts to enact a ban...

    In Texas, Scott couldn't be charged for the death of his son because, as one woman put it so eloquently, in Texas the child is a "no- thing" before birth. There is no way to bring a charge in civil or criminal court for the wrongful death of an unborn child who dies in Texas against his or her mother's will. HB 246, The Prenatal Protection Act is being held up in the State Affairs Committee of the Texas Legislature because the Texas Medical Association doesn't want the unborn child to be recognized as a cause for malpractice.

Newsweek's recent cover story on fetal rights caused quite a stir among abortion supporters. A poll conducted by the magazine shows that 46 percent of Americans believe that life begins at conception, while an additional 12 percent believes that it begins at implantation. Only 11 percent believes that life begins at birth, which means that 89 percent of Americans would acknowledge that the present abortion laws allow for at least some legalization of murder.

    The California deaths of Laci Peterson and her unborn son are sending shock waves across America as the issue of when human life begins has been reignited. Laci's husband Scott was arrested last week following the discovery of what prosecutors say is Laci's body and that of their "biological child." Scott Peterson, who was booked on two counts of murder hours after his arrest in San Diego, is scheduled for an arraignment hearing tomorrow. If charged and convicted of double homicide, he could face the death penalty. Already, some pro-choice groups including the National Organization for Women are voicing their...

    Washington Times ^ | February 22, 2004 | Amy Fagan and Stephen Dinan
    <p>The House this week will set up an election-year showdown over fetal-homicide legislation targeting Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry and a handful of Texas Democrats who have opposed such bills in the past. The bill, called the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, would legally recognize two victims when a pregnant woman and her unborn child are harmed or killed. Polls show the idea is favored by a majority of the public, and the issue is being pushed strongly by the California family of slaying victim Laci Peterson and her unborn son, Conner, as well as the Lyons of Kentucky, whose pregnant daughter, Ashley, and her unborn son, Landon, were killed in January. House Republican leaders expect to vote on the bill Thursday. Twenty-nine states — including California, where Scott Peterson is facing double-murder charges for the death of his wife, Laci, and their son — recognize the unborn as homicide victims in crimes, either throughout the pregnancy or after a certain stage. The Lyons case so mobilized the public there that state lawmakers quickly passed a fetal-homicide law this month. At the federal level, the House has approved such legislation twice, but the Senate has never voted on it. Senate Republican leaders want to bring up the bill soon, even though Democrats have successfully stalled its consideration in the past. President Bush supports the bill and Republican leaders say it's both good policy and good politics. "It has a residual effect in the campaign, but it is a policy we pursued two years before the presidential election," said Stuart Roy, spokesman for House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Texas Republican. Opponents of the measure, including Democratic front-runner Mr. Kerry, have said it will undermine abortion rights by recognizing a fetus as a separate person with legal rights, while backers of the bill say there are clearly two victims when a pregnant woman is attacked. "There's overwhelming support for making an unborn baby who's been murdered as a separate murder than the mother," Mr. Roy said. "But the Democratic presidential candidates running in a primary have to take a position that puts themselves far out of the mainstream to a normal general election voter." There are a handful of Texas Democrats in the House being targeted by the vote on the legislation as well, including Reps. Martin Frost and Lloyd Doggett. They're among the Democrats who didn't vote for the bill last time, but face somewhat of a predicament this time, since Texas redistricting has made their districts more conservative. Congressional Democrats have pushed an alternative version of the bill that would increase penalties for crimes against pregnant women without recognizing the fetus as a second victim. Senate Democrats will offer this "one-victim" approach when the bill is considered there, and it's not clear which version will pass. A statement from Mr. Kerry's office this week indicated he would support such an alternative. But victims' families reject this approach. A May 2003 Newsweek poll found 84 percent think that when a pregnant woman and her fetus are killed, the attacker should face two murder charges instead of one. The legislation before the House this week would make it a separate crime to hurt or kill a fetus at any stage of pregnancy during the commission of about 68 federal crimes against the pregnant woman. The bill would explicitly exempt legal abortion, but in an e-mail response to a constituent in June, Mr. Kerry disagreed, saying it would "clearly impact" abortion rights. "I have serious concerns about this legislation because the law cannot simultaneously provide that a fetus is a human being and protect the right of the mother to choose to terminate her pregnancy. Therefore, I do not support the Unborn Victims of Violence Act," he said in his e-mail. Laci Peterson's mother, Sharon Rocha, wrote to Mr. Kerry in July to convince him otherwise. She argued that California's fetal-homicide law has been around since 1970 and hasn't affected abortion rights there at all. "What I find difficult to understand is why groups and senators who champion the pro-choice cause are blind to the fact that these two-victim crimes are the ultimate violation of choice," Mrs. Rocha said.</p>

    MODESTO, Calif. -- Modesto police say that their search of the home of a missing pregnant woman Tuesday has not led to a big break in the case, but that they will return to the home of Laci Peterson Wednesday to continue the search.

Investigators removed dozens of bags and boxes of potential evidence from the house Tuesday, and they also drove away with Scott Peterson's new truck, which was later returned. Detectives with gloves had...

    Technology makes start of life clear By Juanita Thouin Published: Wednesday, November 10, 2004 Since the 1973 passage of Roe v. Wade, one pivotal issue has fueled the continuing abortion debate - the origin of life. Some said, and still say, life begins at conception. Others claim it begins at birth. Through the 1970s and 80s, many of us accepted or at least acquiesced to a pro-choice philosophy - myself included. After all, the womb was a mysterious place where few ventured. Yes, some of us had seen the amazing 1965 photos Lennart Nilsson took, via an endoscope, of a...

    In several states, women considering abortion are given government-issued brochures warning that the procedure could increase their chance of developing breast cancer, despite scientific findings to the contrary. More than a year ago, a panel of scientists convened by the National Cancer Institute reviewed available data and concluded there is no link. A scientific review in the Lancet, a British medical journal, came to the same conclusion, questioning the methodology in studies that suggested a link. The cancer information is distributed to women during mandatory waiting periods before abortions. In some cases, the information is on the states' Web sites....
