Morning Thread

Terrific article from the Guttmacher Institute: Prosecuting Women for Self-Inducing Abortion: Counterproductive and Lacking Compassion.  Basically makes the point that outlawing abortion won't stop women from having abortions. It will just make it more dangerous, partly because she will be reluctant to seek medical treatment if anything goes wrong. The whole attack on Planned Parenthood seems to have gotten lost with all the other news last week.
