this morning i awoke to read on the front page of the morning paper that the records of an abortion clinic in town has had its records subpoenaed by the justice dept. well, here it comes: the abortion providers who challenged the "partial birth law" are now going to find the government going after them. again, the government is saying that they need "critical information about the physicians who performed the abortions, not the patients who received them".
i hope that this clinic and all physicians and all hospitals who provide abortions refuse to share this most private of information with the government. resist all efforts to intimidate women and doctors from seeking or providing a legal medical procedure.
