  - The story according to Joe Klein  janet118   Jun-16-11 12:52 AM   #7 
  - That's how it works for the anti-choice crowd. When they need one it's not a "real" abortion.  Maru Kitteh   Jun-16-11 01:03 AM   #13 
     - +1,000  malaise   Jun-16-11 05:45 AM   #19

  - To be fair - from thhe Washington Post article , this is the procedure  hedgehog   Jun-16-11 10:50 AM   #36 
     - That is because he is a fucking liar.  Warren Stupidity   Jun-16-11 10:57 AM   #38 
        - Exactly right. He would let a woman die rather than have a late-term.  madfloridian   Jun-17-11 11:10 AM   #64

                    - I'm sure it does -- which is why I'm not criticizing these parents.  pnwmom   Jun-16-11 02:28 PM   #51 
                       - you know what? I totally misread your post.  AngryAmish   Jun-16-11 03:14 PM   #53
