Dr. Bizarro

What the heck was Howard Dean talking about in a teleconference yesterday?

No doctor is going to do an abortion on a live fetus. That doesn’t happen. Doctors don’t do that. If they do, they’ll get their license pulled, as well they should.

A “fetus” is live before it is aborted…and it is legal to abort “fetuses” in the United States. It’s often the case that pols have no idea what they are talking about on “bioethics” issues—as recent dramatic events in New Jersey on cloning have proven—but Dean is actually a real live medical doctor.
