Jezebel in defense of late term abortions...we shouldn't question why she waited, we perform the deed
Jezebel joins the others in the abortion industry trying to salvage what they can from a PR disaster of a week when the grisly details of Gosnell's "House of Horrors" became media fodder. They have to justify what they do and this doc dares to say it ....we kill at the mother's request ....and this should be through all stages of pregnancy . We just have to do it cleaner and safer for the woman. We are not to judge why she presents in the later part of her pregnancy with a viable infant.We perform. Such nasty work but someone has to do it. So I ask, what of the woman who presents with a toddler she cannot parent anymore. Should we kill the toddler to achieve her preferences and make her life better. After all the only difference between the toddler and her baby is size, level of development, environment and degree of dependence.
"...What I do know is that women who do seeklater abortions, no matter how uncomfortable they make us, deserve nothing less than access to compassionate, respectful, quality medical care. If we don't want these women to be hurt or worse, killed by amateur doctors willing to break the law, we need to give them legal options to terminate their pregnancies.The only answer that makes sense to me, that corresponds to my value of reproductive justice, is to demand better access to safe abortion, as late in the pregnancy as necessary."
