The Name: FTFA: "The Gosnell case is a watershed moment for the issue of abortion," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. "The discovery of his horrific practices helped shed light on an abortion industry that has run amok without oversight or accountability for decades, and has prompted significant changes in abortion laws and attitudes toward enforcement in several states."Just in case anyone's wondering about this unusual term (which seems to be coming up more and more often lately) . . . yes, Republican voters actually believe that there's an entire multi-billion-dollar per year industry built entirely around performing abortions. This industry, according to Republicans, even has an entire advertising wing in the form of the glorification of sex in mainstream media and non-abstinence-only sexual education in public schools. Nurses and doctors at Planned Parenthood and other women's health facilities -again, according to Republicans- are specially trained to talk young, pregnant girls into having abortions so they'll be desensitized to the procedure at an early age and thus come back to give the clinics more of their "business."I learned all of this listening to AM radio on a trip through rural Missouri.
Theaetetus: Well, duh. He's not on trial for performing abortions, and so you don't want people who would convict him for doing something legal.
