And the Phantom Procedure which has been named "PBA" by the Anti Abortion Propaganda Industry (AAPI) does not now and never has existed.

The term is an attempt to describe both a medical abortion procedure and a time in gestation when the abortion is performed using a single emotion laden acronym.

There is not one member of the governing bodies of Congress or the Senate capable of providing answers to the very simple challenge at the top of - this page -.

The current attempt to 'ban' this Phantom Procedure, Bill S3 is in many ways even more dangerous to women than previous versions although it still contains the poison pill that all such legislation contained - that being that the description of this supposed "PBA" is so broad that it may even be legally used to ban first trimester abortions. For those concerned about this latest misogynist attack on women's rights I have a short analysis of the current bill - here - including it's inherent 'poison pill' effect on women and physicians who provide their services for them.

If I may be so bold I would like to suggest that those who are as appaled as I am by the success of this propaganda term on the rights of women no longer ever refer to the phantom procedure using the propaganda term "PBA" without also using and equating it with the term "Phantom Procedure". If we must adopt the language of the enemies of freedom let us at least make it clear that we recognize the propaganda for what it is.
