Back-alley abortion scare stories are back.

April 11th, 2006

In a transparent effort to jumpstart the back-alley abortion scare mongering, viagra canada sildenafil the New York Times sent a reporter to El Savador to do a story highlighting how horrible life is in a country where abortion is illegal.

The goal of this story is to promote unfettered access to abortion. So the writer never bothers to point out that unwanted pregnancies could be resolved through adoption. Or avoided all together by not indulging in sex when you don’t want a child.

It’s so much simpler to advocate irresponsibility and infanticide.

    What about El Salvador’s law that even ectopic pregnancies can’t be terminated until fetal death? El Salvador’s laws that allow uteruses (uteri?) to be literally confiscated for state’s evidence?

    Seems like those raise legitimate questions, not just about the way El Salvador is doing the thing, but also about how far the right in this country might be willing to go to get its way. Are they willing to put women in jail for 40 years?

    I agree, El Salvador goes too far.

    OF COURSE El Salvador goes too far. They execute drunk drivers via firing squad! Just a wee bit too harsh for me.

    Do they shoot them while they’re still driving?

    I could see where that would be problematic.
