  •  When I first saw the story (8+ / 0-)

    I wondered that myself.  As more medical information came in, Iwas confident that the patient's request was not inconsistent with sound medical practice.  But that's kind of beside the point.

    On the other hand, let's turn it around.  We certainly know for a fact that NOT providing the abortion did not extend the life of the fetus for a single day.

    If you think you're too small to be effective, you've never been in the dark with a mosquito.
