    The fact that the title starts with the point of view of the antiabortion protestors is problematic. Why not begin with the woman? The reporter also uses the loaded "controversial" adjective to describe the clinic but nothing in the article substantiates that except for the perspective of forced-birthers. The article is definitely slanted. I hope the writer follows up with more details. Without a cause of death, we don't know what happened. Also, the reporter could have asked a medical expert what a "multi-day" procedure might have entailed. I've never heard of such a thing. He'd do his readers a service by actually educating himself, then sharing that information.

    The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times
