Convicted abortionist Rapin Osathanondh was released from jail after spending 3 months behind bars. He accepted a plea deal for involuntary manslaughter after Laura Hope Smith died at his abortion clinic. Operation Rescue's web site has a statement from Laura's mother, Eileen Smith, in which she says that the parole board denied parole because Osathanondh showed no remorse but the judge allowed him home anyway.
Even though the Parole Board recently denied his parole because they said he was NOT remorseful for what he did, and he was the most “arrogant and callous person to ever ask for parole in their experience serving on the parole board”, the Judge disregarded the parole board’s comments and decision and granted him freedom to go home.

The Associated Press has noticed that prolifers are pushing for more state laws which will restrict late-term abortions. Here's a ha! quote from the article:
Jordan Goldberg, the legislative counsel for the Center for Reproductive Rights, said lawmakers had more serious issues than abortion — such as the economy — to worry about and should not “waste state time” on fetal pain legislation not backed by medical science.
Yes, because I'm sure the Center for Reproductive Rights is encouraging stonrgly pro-choice lawmakers to focus solely on the economy.

In what could become the next new way to find whether unborn children have genetic diseases, researchers have been able to map the genome of a human fetus using blood from the mother. As the story about the research in The Australian notes, this seems to be an earlier and fancier way for couples to determine if they want to abort a child with a genetic diseases.
The test could potentially be performed in the eighth week of pregnancy, up to seven weeks earlier than existing diagnostic procedures, giving women longer to decide whether to proceed with an affected pregnancy.
