The last?

It's strange how sometimes many things will come together in a string of co-incidences and, when put together, give you that eerie feeling. I don't think I am making sense, but I will elaborate. For the past week I have been working on and off on the post about abortion, mainly about extreme views on both sides of the debate. I am not quite sure whether I will post it, but for my own reasons I want to finish it. Hence no other posts.

And then I keep on seeing abortion debated again and again in the news, Congress, and pretty much everywhere one looks because of the whole health care reform business. Today I got a poll asking me to identify myself as a pro-Choice or pro-Life. For the record, I refuse to answer as neither describes my views.

Then yesterday I found an excellent article about the situation with late term abortions in the U.S. This is sort of a portrait of the last doctor in the U.S. (for some reason I though there was another one, even after Dr. Tiller was murdered) who is still performing this procedure. While I don't agree with everything he says, I definitely think that the article raises very serious questions and issues. So here's the link for those interested.


  1. That is a bloody long article. Care to summarize?

  2. Moshe, the article is from Exquire Magazine - that says it all.

  3. I am so sick of the extremes in this debate holding the rest of us (and our health care reform) hostage.

  4. Moshe, I'll attempt tonight. But seriously man, you need to work on your attention span.

    SC, completely agree with you, both extremes make me sick.

    Unfortunately, it's not only the health care reform, but also our health. These extremist pro-life supporters are hunting down doctors, and once this one is gone from the scene - and it will be very soon as he is 70 - there will be no one in this country to perform late term abortions that could save someone's health, fertility or sometimes life.

  5. Attention span? It's at least 9 pages! PAGES!
