What David Brooks Doesn't Understand About Abortions After The Second Trimester

The medical reality of why parents seek abortions after the midpoint of their second trimester is so utterly tragic that contrasting it with Brooks' fantasy would be funny if it weren't so infuriating.

S&N. Thx for posting Freya. Brooks and the rest of his ignorant republithug a$$holes should take a long walk off a short pier. A shark-infested water greeting optional, but might be a nice touch...

Noted, thank you, Freya.

Brooks doesn't understand much else, either.
Why he can't just stick to his NYT a shame.. he seems to think his opinions are facts, and vice versa.

Journalism down the drain, with the likes of Brooks, acting as an informed and unbiased 'reporter'.

He can 'report' what he likes.. no one is stopping him, or even challenging him.

Thanks Freya for sharing the link to the excellent article by Anna Almendrala. No man should even attempt to commit on women's health issue unless they are a physician.

Wonder if I know 1 (one) woman who had abortion just for no reason at all, just for the fun if you like it to say like that.

Wonder why there still are opinion- and lawmakers that think abortion should be banned, or so utterly limited in time that getting an legal abortion becomes nearly impossible.

Changing the rules won't stop abortions, it will just make abortions dangerous, as they were before.

Thanks for this article Freya.
