Pro-Choice Blogger Gives Abortion Manual for Amature Abortions

In light of the law passed in SD restricting abortion further, a pro-choice activist is giving medical instructions for those wishing to preform clandestine abortion procedures:

"For under $2000, any person with the inclination to learn could create a fully functioning abortion setup allowing for both vacuum aspiration and dilation/curettage abortions. If you are careful and diligent, and have a good grasp of a woman's anatomy you will not put anyone's health or life in danger, even if you have not seen one of these procedures performed."

It's frightening that she intends this information to be used not by trained medical professionals, but by untrained laypeople. The knowledge and the surgical skills needed to safely preform medical procedures aren't a hobby that can be learned overnight by an amature like backyard gardening or pottery. It takes years of intensive study and practice to become a skilled and qualified physician or physician's assistant I hate to say it, but with the number of trained medical professionals sympathetic to the pro-choice cause, why should we be encouraging untrained persons to preform abortions? Previous to Roe v. Wade, theraputic abortions were legally permitted to be preformed in hospitals when the woman's life was in danger and the majority of elective abortions were preformed by trained medical professionals in good standing, so why would that likely change?


It seems that the blog in question is no longer in existance and the blogmistress is taking a hiatus as of April 2007, however a re-print of the entry can be found here and here. If you visit either blog, while you may strongly disagree with them as I have, I ask that you don't engage in slander or threats, as it does not show good will on pro-lifers part. Also of interest, an interview by Bella Online with the blogmistress, Molly, can be found here.
