Wait, that connection does not compute. I am pro choice. But this man was a for profit racketteer. He was not hurting for funds. He charged more than most other providers and billed Medicaid and private insurers, sometimes both, illegally. Poor women may have initially gone to him because they thought they could get cheap services, but they continued to go back because he offered very late term abortions that no one else would. That isn't anti-choice. If anything their impact has been more direct in criminalizing late term abortion, which could be argued as morally and medically just. OR they could be guilty of reducing the amount of education and information out there so that women aren't seeking abortions early on and are waiting until dangerously far along. But lack of financial ability to pay had NOTHING to do with their using this quack monster. Some were traveling from out of state and paying up to $3000, which is more than even local hospitals charged.

The point stands regardless of the individual case: when you make it harder for women to get abortions, more are forced into dangerous situations to acquire those abortions, and more are forced into later-term abortions.

re: #1 Escaped Hillbilly

The right to choose includes the ability to choose NOT to have an abortion. This article posted by reasearchok shows that a 15 year old who told the doctor that she didn't want an abortion got one anyway. No doctor with any kind of standards would do that. The person who took the girl to that doctor knew he would do it.

The reason anyone would have gone to this doctor was "lack of options". The reason for the lack of options is the incessant campaign against abortion, making it a taboo subject, reducing the number of doctors who will perform them, and raising the cost.
