The New York Times editorial on the San Francisco partial-birth abortion is full of holes, the two most glaring, from a quick scan: the word “pre-viability” to describe what the partial-birth-abortion ban prohibits (my computer so doesn’t have the “so-called partial-birth abortion” macro). (Click here if you need a visual of what the ban bans–WARNING: graphically disturbing, one of those images that remain/innocence eraser.) The second is the contention that partial-birth abortion is some invention that close to no one does. The Planned Parenthood stats machines, the Alan Guttmacher Institute has said otherwise. So has a prominent abortion supporter (Ron Fitsimmons, National Coalition of Abortion Providers).
