What happens when Plan B becomes Plan A?

At XOJane, Cat Marnell writes about (warning: Cat discusses her sex life) how she is using Plan B as her primary form of birth control. Cat believes other women in New York are "abusing" Plan B as well because supposedly pharmacies all over New York City are out of it.

Cat also believes that abortion is murder, has had multiple abortions and thinks she has the right to murder her unborn children as long as they are in her body.

In the comments she writes, "in most ways I am GLAD, so much, that we can all get abortions like we can get oral surgery, and that no one pressures us to dwell upon and consider the hurt inherent in it all. only recently have i thought about them and my own experiences in a way that let them or the trauma of them matter, or register as awful physical/emotional/psychological experiences to have gone through. traumas.. if that makes sense. I definitely have let my pro-choiceness numb out my feelings."

In response to Katie Stack's editorial attack on crisis pregnancy centers, the New York Times publishes a letter to the editor from abortionist Nancy Stanwood which claims CPCs in her area lied to patients.

The New York Times: All the evidence-free attacks on pregnancy centers that are fit to print.

Politico has an article on the Protect Life Act and it's upcoming vote in Congress.
The bill would ban federal funding of abortions. It would also ensure that providers have protections if they believe abortions violate their consciences and prohibit the tax subsidies in the health reform law from going toward a health plan that includes coverage of abortions except in cases of rape or incest or for the safety of the mother.

Planned Parenthood warns that the bill could allow hospitals to refuse to treat a patient whose life depends on having an abortion. The group argues that a hospital would be able to use the bill's conscience clause to escape the federal law — the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act — that requires hospitals to treat all patients.

It's a theory that the bill's backers call "preposterous" — arguing that health care providers would never refuse to do what's needed to save a patient's life. Andrew Wimer, a Pitts spokesman, says Catholic hospitals let their doctors perform emergency procedures even if they could cause the death of an unborn child.
One would think that honest pro-choicers would eventually catch on to these kind of outlandish scare tactics.

Abortions are down in Arizona after legislation restricts nurse practitioners from providing abortion. Let's listen as Planned Parenthood Arizona President Bryan Howard bemoans that abortionists have to actually consult with their patients face-to-face.
He said there are just not enough doctors in Arizona who are both trained to do the work and willing to do it, what with protestors outside the clinics and, in at least the case of one nurse-practitioner in Flagstaff, outside her home.....

"It's 100 percent due to the shortage of providers,'' Howard said. Now he said doctors must perform both surgical and medical abortions as well as be available for those face-to-face consultations.
Planned Parenthood also performed 89.6% of Arizona's abortion's last month.
Planned Parenthood is the state's largest abortion provider. Howard said 653 of the 729 abortions in September were performed by Planned Parenthood.
Howard also ridiculously appeals to the 400 "real children" this month who didn't get killed at his clinics and how their families may not be able to afford child care.

In the San Francisco-area, a rich, old lady named Harriett Hills Stinson told NARAL's Power for Choice luncheon she had an abortion and encouraged other women to talk about their abortions. Another article from the San Mateo Times notes that her ob/gyn husband performed the illegal abortion and has this scary detail.
The lack of sleep from raising three young children was causing her such stress that she had the urge to act out violently toward them whenever her sleep was disrupted.
