*Edit: I guess the title was inaccurate. Any abortion involves a death. But this one involved two.*
Natedawg has other things to do and has stayed out of politics and blogging these past couple of months. But he wrote this brief comment to go along with the linked article, and I think it's well worth sharing. We need to be sure as many people as possible know about these types of tragedies.
got an email about this yesterday -- check out the link for the whole story. A 29-year old woman died of complications from a botched
abortion performed on a 33-week old baby in Germantown, MD, after the
abortion "doctor" Leroy Carhart could not be reached to provide
follow-up care. This is not the first woman who has died at the hands
of Carhart who specializes in "late-term abortions."
A lot of people
don't realize that in Maryland abortions can be performed for any reason
at any stage of the pregnancy right up until the baby's birth. I don't
know how anyone with a conscience could not be shocked and sickened by
this entire story, from the legalized killing of a nearly full-term baby
to the utter callousness of the care this woman received to the tragedy
of her preventable death.
This story needs to get attention in the
press...hope lots of people show up for the prayer vigil/memorial
outside of the abortion clinic on Monday at 9 am."
