I'm a little late to the party here but...Wow.
Carolyn Bennet published Mike Schouten's call for more abortion stats.
After relating the story of Karel's elective abortion at 26 weeks, he writes:
My first inclination would be to go back to MP Bennett, and confront her with this information, which refutes her previous claim about a 24-week maximum for discretionary abortions. But she would simply reply that there is no way to substantiate the story without proper records. And she would be right – which gets us to the cynical reason why prochoicers like the current information vacuum just fine.
In short, they think abortion should be a free-for-all. It’s information about abortion that they want to keep under lock and key.
Hm. Is this a case of intellectual honesty? I'm trying to be honest and realistic in appraising this. Part of me wants to be cynical and find some ulterior motive. Part of me wants to give her a high-five.
