Botched abortions are supposed to be rare. Abortions are supposed to be safe enough that they can be done in clinics that are exempted from standard government health provider regulations. Anyone who suggests that women need more protection from the risks of abortion is supposedly conducting a "war on women."
Well then, here's a case in which a Colorado abortion is being sued for a botched abortion. According to the lawsuit, a couple decided to have an abortion because tests indicated a serious cranial problem with the fetus Unfortunately, the suit claims, the abortionist left a part of the fetal skull behind, which imbedded itself in the uterus, causing severe pain and leading to sterility.
The doctor, the suit alleges, failed to disclose the risks associated with the abortion procedure. Can't be telling women what the risks are of a medical procedure can we, because it "interferes" with their "right to choose."
Not to worry, right? Hey, it's just one case, right?
Pro-life advocates are the only ones in this debate that are encouraging full disclosure of the risks. A massive and deceptive public relations campaign against them unfairly tarred them with a misogynist label. And live (doesn't) go on.
