Impossible to suggest an abortion in the Phillippines-- BULL! Answering Gloria Allred

It seems that Gloria Allred is doubting Pam Tebow's story about being offered an abortion based simply on the fact that abortion is illegal in the Phillippines.

Because doctors NEVER do anything that is illegal. says that 1/3 of women who have abortions in the Philippines have them performed by physicians or nurses.

If medical professionals perform them, it's not a stretch to think that they offer them, especially to a sick woman.

In Canada, before the legalization of abortion in 1968, doctors performed them. They offered them to their patients and used all kinds of euphemisms to cover their activities. In fact, it was the CMA that pushed for the decriminalization of abortion in order to protect their members.

Sometimes, governments are *complicit* in illegal abortions, as in the case of the French island of St. Marten, where the government knows that doctors do abortions and effectively leaves them alone to do it.

Gloria Allred is ridiculous and does not seem to be well-versed in the practice of abortion in developing countries.
