By Dave Andrusko Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley today signed the multi-pronged Women’s Health and Safety Act which includes provisions to regulate so-called “webcam” abortions, require abortionists to have admitting privileges at a local hospital, and require abortion clinics to meet the same building safety codes as ambulatory surgical centers. Webcam abortions refers to a huge …Continue reading "Alabama Governor signs bill regulating “WebCam” abortions"
By Dave Andrusko When your underlying premise is that there can NEVER be enough abortions, sometimes that comes out even when you deny believing it, if confronted. Let’s take “For Abortion Pills, You Must ‘See’ Your Doctor,” by Esme E. Deprez. Ms. Deprez is attempting to illustrate the awfulness of laws that require abortionists to …Continue reading "Big Money at stake in Webcam Abortions"
By Dave Andrusko Planned Parenthood sues at the drop of a hat, indeed they’d sue, if they could, while the hat is being made. Take Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin, for example. They’ve just reached an understanding with the state Department of Justice about a piece of 2012 legislation titled the “Coercive and Web Cam Abortion …Continue reading "Wisconsin law on WebCam abortions intact"
By Dave Andrusko I just learned about a study that appeared in the American Journal of Public Health yesterday (courtesy of a story in the Des Moines Register) which purports to find that the presence of “web-cam” abortions in Iowa did not increase the overall number of abortions in the Hawkeye State.

By Dave Andrusko Seems like only yesterday…it practically WAS only yesterday… that we were writing about state legislation. National Public Radio (NPR), which is not exactly a pro-life stalwart, headlined a story Wednesday, “Abortion Debate Likely To Heat Up In 2012.” And indeed it will, and already has. NPR’s Kathy Lohr reported on some of …Continue reading "Early State action on Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection, “Webcam” abortions, and Ultrasound"
By Dave Andrusko It’s encouraging to read follow-up stories which emphasize (as we pointed out here) that webcam abortions do not make abortion either safe or rare. A rehearsal of those simple truths was prompted by a man with impeccable pro-abortion credentials who a couple weeks back concluded in a study that web-cam abortions were …Continue reading "The Drumbeat of Criticism of Webcam Abortions Continues to Sound"
By Rose Mimms, Executive Director, Arkansas Right to Life Editor’s note. The following remarks were delivered at a July 6 press conference in Little Rock, Arkansas.

By Dave Andrusko Webcam abortions are a kind of arraigned marriage between a very legitimate medical practice—telemedicine—and RU486, the pro-abortionist’s dream “technique” for insinuating abortion into every nook and cranny in the United States and every unsuspecting third-world village in the developing world. The evil genius of webcam abortions is to disguise the real agenda—making …Continue reading "Defending WebCam Abortions Requires Misreading Pro-Life Motives, Ignoring Pro-Abortionists’ Agenda"
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"
