4. You can get copies of

your records, but you can't destroy them. The clinic always keeps a copy too.

They are not supposed to be available, just like psych records are not available to the public or the courts.

This is Pandora's box, IMHO.

They could subpoena anyone's records based on suspicion that the physician did something against the law. What a crock of s***!

What pisses me off is that all these fools ever talk about is the abortion itself, not the reasons that people have them. A 2nd trimester abortion is called a "therapeutic abortion" generally because there's a medical or psychological purpose behind it. Like for instance, the woman is a drug addict whose has been using through the pregnancy and the fetus will likely be damaged, or the woman's life is at risk, or there is a known problem with the fetus, like a genetic disorder....nobody ever talks about that!
