Extremism in Colorado

(written after watching the PBS special which can be watched here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/clinic/ )

Last night's PBS special on the last abortion clinic in Mississippi was harrowing. Over and over, abortion rights advocates and providers talked of conditions for women that already are comparable to those before Roe V. Wade was passed: women unable to access abortions, forced to leave the state, uneducated about birth control, unable to afford services, forced to have children they do not want.

I am sorry ( when they showed the clip of Bush announcing the ban on 'partial birth abortion' all I could think of was Hitler ( of his posture of moral superiority at the cost of millions of lives, of the fanfare, of the populace that acquiesced with evil. And, Hitler DID outlaw abortion.
