But closer look reveals there are significant problems with the reliability and completeness of the data By Randall K. O=Bannon, Ph.D. NRL Director of Education & Research In their fervor to promote the cause, pro-abortion researchers/activists sometimes stretch even the bounds of their own credulity. This certainly appears to the case with the latest “study” …Continue reading "New Study Claims Webcam Abortions are Safer Than Chemical Abortions performed at abortion Clinic: Part One of Two"
By Dave Andrusko On Wednesday West Virginia Governor Jim Justice signed two measures into law: a strengthened parent’s right to know bill and a “telemedicine” bill which explicitly prevents long-distance prescription of abortifacient drugs. On April 8, the last day of the West Virginia legislative session, the Senate overwhelmingly passed HB 2002, the Parent’s Right …Continue reading "West Virginia Governor signs two pro-life bills"
By Dave Andrusko Okay, I don’t have access to POLITCO PRO (it costs a small fortune), but the excerpt printed this morning is more than enough. The bizarre headline is “Abortions via telemedicine not so bipartisan.” What in the world is Ashley Gold reporting on? It’s all in the first sentence: “Republican lawmakers are …Continue reading "Pretending not to understand why it’s okay to use telemedicine for life-affirming purposes but not for abortion"
By Dave Andrusko You’d never know it by the headline in USA Today—“New abortion restrictions take a digital turn”—but the story is actually about webcam abortions.

By Paul Stark A new study published in the American Journal of Public Health analyzes the use of telemedicine to remotely administer “medical” (chemical, RU486) abortions in Iowa. Planned Parenthood began performing these “webcam abortions” in 2008, and by 2010 they were offered at 11 different clinics across Iowa. The study should be taken with …Continue reading "Study shows that telemedicine expands abortion access in Iowa"
By Dave Andrusko What a coincidence! Now that five states have taken the initiative against web-cam abortions (with more in the wings), lo and behold a study appears in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology touting the wonderfulness of a “procedure” in which the abortionist is not even in the room with the woman as she …Continue reading "Predictably Study Undertaken by Pro-abortionists Celebrate Webcam Abortions"
