Amanda Marcotte comments on the New Yorker piece on abortionist Steven Brigham and unsurprisingly attempts to blame his abortion empire on prolife laws and social stigma.
So what can be done to stop dangerous abortion providers? One major thing is to stop marginalizing abortion from the rest of medical care through anti-choice legislation and social stigma.
Interestingly, she never cites any of the prolife laws in New Jersey and Maryland which might have lead to Brigham operating there. That’s because both states receive high marks from NARAL because of their lack of prolife laws.
Marcotte has previously blamed the existence of Kermit Gosnell and his abortion practice on Pennsylvania’s ban on tax-funded abortions. Both New Jersey and Maryland use tax dollars to pay for abortions.
