And in completely unrelated news, "The Supreme Court cleared the way Monday for health authorities in South Carolina to collect names, addresses and other information about women seeking abortions, a power doctors say violates a fundamental duty to protect patient privacy." Mind you, this has nothing to do with punishing women who've had abortions, or making women more reluctant to have abortions. South Carolina is just trying to "improve state oversight of abortion providers." It's all just part of "ordinary state record keeping." Of course, no other state feels the need to pry into medical records of any kind, much less those related to a particularly controversial procedure. The fact that this is happening in the same state that wants to erect a 6 foot fetus statue to commemorate the fight against abortion rights is purely coincidental.
