South Dakota Abortion Disclaimer: Saving Lives!
Tuesday, July 22, 2008
Just in from Jill Stanek:
Yesterday was the 1st day mill workers were to read a script to mothers at least 2 hours before a scheduled abortion stating "the abortion will terminate the life of a whole, separate, unique, living human being," and "abortion increases the risk of suicide ideation and suicide." The law also states mothers must sign that they understand.
These things are true. Wherever one stands on the personhood issue, it is a fact that an embryo is a unique living human being.
Abortion does increase risk of depression and suicided. Another fact.
Planned Parenthood locked its doors, rather than provide women with this information, as mandated by the state.
Of course, this is the PP spin:
This law, the only one of its kind in the U.S forces doctors to give ideologically charged, nonscientific and inaccurate messages to their patients...
...“Planned Parenthood is committed to true informed consent. We want patients to fully participate in decisions about their health care. That requires that doctors have the ability to provide accurate and unbiased medical information to patients without the interference of government and politicians,” said Stoesz.
They'd rather close their doors than admit that abortion is bad for women, and ends the life of a human being.
Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy. - Psalm 28:6

A side note and random observation: This ONE post has messed up my blog rating! I'm rated R now, for thirteen instances of the word abortion and two instances of the work suicide.
