Life Links 1/29/07

Tim Graham notes the differing coverage in the Washington Post between the recent war protest and the March for Life. My local paper had a good story about a local march for life but I didn't see anything about the D.C. march while having a long front page article about the war protest.

What did I say about the 5,000 to 10,000 myth? Pro-choice advocates and lazy reporters just won't let it die. Here's the latest from Eastern Michigan's newspaper.
The only other option for women was to have an illegal abortion, usually in unsanitary conditions and with dangerous methods. Each year, an estimated 5,000 women would die of botched abortions.
This time it appears the reporter likely got this statistic from NARAL's web site or someone at Planned Parenthood.

It appears the South Dakota legislators will introduce another bill to ban abortion. This time the bill will have exceptions for rape and incest and the health of the woman. I haven't seen yet how "health" is defined.

There's a bunch of letters regarding Justice for All display at the University of Arizona at the Wildcat Online.
