Live How We Say: Abortion And Fundamentalist Fervour In Dixie


It may be hard for other non Americans to grasp just how dangerous an occupation it is being an abortion provider in America. If, after reading the article below, you may wish to go to the Paul Hill Message Board and experience the religious fervour if not downright insanity that of which is penned by Hill's supporters.

Paul hill was an anti-abortion activist who murdered two abortion providers with a shotgun outside an abortion clinic in Pensacola Florida. Hill was executed in Florida in 2003.

If you follow other "Army of God" links from Hill's message board be aware there are some extremely graphic photographs relative to abortion.

Every state in the Deep South -- Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina -- restricts low-income women's access to abortion. Most ban abortion after 12 weeks of pregnancy. None explicitly protect heath care facilities from harassment or violence. All have mandatory delay laws that unfairly burden women who have limited access to transportation and time off work, and Louisiana and South Carolina both passed unconstitutional laws requiring a husband's consent for a married woman's abortion. In the past 16 months, two abortion clinics in Alabama have closed, and new regulations are making it difficult for other clinics to stay open. Now, anti-abortion groups are strategizing ways to outlaw birth control and eliminate sex education.more

One only has to read my previous post to witness the outcome when fundamentalist fanatics get their unfettered way.
