Yes, I thought I was commenting on an earlier program, didn't realize it was coming up. The BBC did a good piece on Gosnell, better than I've heard in our media. There is a recognition that Gosnell is by no means alone, there are many others out there.

But the system has wedded itself to abortion so strongly that one has to ask 'What can stop it?' One note is that the week after 9/11 there were no abortions in NYC.

@Ed from Larchmont...

And how the hell would you know at 5 minutes to 6 in the morning?!? Tell whomever you take your marching orders from that the trolling scripts need to be coherent and logical.

Just as there is motivation for legal abortion, some will be motivated to get illegal third trimester abortions. How big is this, the problem of the 'Kermit Goznells' out there?

It was funny, when Brian Lehrer read out the restrictions in the Texas bill that didn't get passed in time, one could almost hear him thinking:

'You know, these restrictions don't sound that unreasonable.'
