Life Links 5/22/07

The LA Times has a story (here's the story in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel if you don't have LA Times registration) about medical students thinking about becoming abortion providers.
That upbeat message was a marked contrast from the lecture Lederer and her friends heard last fall at the University of Colorado's medical school in downtown Denver. Medical Students for Choice had invited Dr. Warren Hern, a legend in the abortion rights movement, to give them encouragement. He offered none.

None of you will be an abortion provider, he told the students. You don't have it in you.

"Do something else. Fix broken legs," he often advises. "No reasonable person would do this."

Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati has posted some of the court documents of Denise Fairbanks. Fairbanks is the young woman who is suing Planned Parenthood because she claims she told their staff about how she was raped and then Planned Parenthood didn't report anything. The last page is a Planned Parenthood documentation form for suspected sexual or child abuse. The writing is difficult to read but I believe under "Reason for report" it says, "Patient reports pregnancy is a result of sexual assault by a stranger."

Under "Summary of information provided" I believe it says, "After consultation with PPCR (Planned Parenthood Cincinnati Region) attorney, report of a crime to the police was not made; due to the physician-patient privilege, i.e. and prohibited from reporting as no severe bodily injury was reported."

Free prolife books for bloggers. But there is catch.
