Doctors and Partial Birth Abortion.

The American College of OB/GYNs testified before the Supreme court in favor of Partial Birth Abortion. May Hippocrates come back to haunt them.

Not all OB's are in favor of this procedure, and the testimony of the ACOG should not be taken as representative of the entire medical community. There are doctors, nurses, and pharmacists whose professional opinions oppose abortion (links to their websites are in a list of pro-life links to the right here--you may have to scroll.)

Here, for instance, is a public statement from the American Association of Pro-Life OB/GYN's on partial birth abortion. And here is another statement, again a response to the ACOG. Both are a few years old, but still relevant, and make the point I made in my last post: Breech birth, forcible dilation of the cervix, and sharp implements are not "safer"

As with Global warming, certain people will try to tell you that there is consensus among experts. Not true.
