Barely Legal

From City Pages, a newsweekly in the Twin Cities, a story about the ever-decreasing options in Minnesota for women needing to terminate a pregnancy. This is not the moral or rational way to reduce the number of abortions. Piling on paperwork and scare tactics against patients may deter a few feckless teenagers from having a hastily considered abortion, but when it increases the anguish of a family who discovers their eagerly awaited new baby will not survive due to a birth defect, it is really not worth any benefit that may accrue at other times. And then there are medical training institutions bullying medical students into not learning the procedures. And saddest of all, some qualified doctors won't perform terminations because, in the words of one, "I don't want to get shot."
