{#Yes}  "The Minority Report" and thoughtcrime is fiction; let's keep it that way.  If you're a Catholic, don't force me to live as a Catholic.

Respect the Constitution.  If you can muster enough votes to make an amendment, then give it a try.  But until and unless there is a "no choice" amendment and/or separation of church and state is amended away, the Constitution as-is is still the highest law—obey it.

Frank Schaeffer: Al Jazeera and the Abortion Wars
Who would have thought that two brilliant Al Jazeera women journalists would make the best new TV program on the politics of abortion out there. And who would guess that they pulled this off on the cusp of our presidential political conventions when the "issue" is at a boiling point. They have, they did. (...)

Well, as a necessary medical procedure, we will always need abortions. There are a lot of ways to reduce the need for them, like, oh I don't know, maybe a little EDUCATION for starters. But there will always be instances where an abortion is the best, or the 'least bad' medical decision. And the fact remains, it is not anyone else's business.

Thank you. I like to tell people "I wish there were not any abortions, but I know sometimes they are necessary, and in those cases it is none of my damn business".

There's an article somewhere about Doctor George Tiller and one of his patients. It's heartbreaking. Having an abortion was the least horrific thing in that little girl's life.

NPR Changes Abortion Language

Last week, I wrote a post about how NPR identifies people who support or oppose abortion. It engendered a lively debate inside and outside NPR. Today, some top editors got together to review the 2005 policy and decided to no longer use "pro-choice" or "pro-life."

Here's the memo that was just distributed to all NPR staff:

"NPR News is revising the terms we use to describe people and groups involved in the abortion debate.

This updated policy is aimed at ensuring the words we speak and write are as clear, consistent and neutral as possible. This is important given that written text is such an integral part of our work.

On the air, we should use "abortion rights supporter(s)/advocate(s)" and "abortion rights opponent(s)" or derivations thereof (for example: "advocates of abortion rights"). It is acceptable to use the phrase "anti-abortion", but do not use the term "pro-abortion rights".

Digital News will continue to use the AP style book for online content, which mirrors the revised NPR policy.

Do not use "pro-life" and "pro-choice" in copy except when used in the name of a group. Of course, when the terms are used in an actuality they should remain."

Thanks
