Well, I don't live in the US, and I know many people don't want to discuss abortion. Nevertheless this (from metafilter) is a good link, and a good discussion.

I have a friend who is a midwife and she occasionally has to deliver babies born to mums who, for religious reaasons, have refused what the christian right call 'partial birth abortion' . We must understand that these are babies whose brains or other internal organs are growing outside of the appropriate body cavity. They die in what I imagine is significant pain during or shortly after birth. Sometimes their heads are so enlarged that the mother is badly hurt too. I'm sorry this is such a nasty subject to raise, but it is the truth behind the procedure.

Why are these men smiling?

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
