    What were you saying about charges "dropped?"
    Originally there were close to 40 charges. The original prosecutor was fired. The new prosecutor dropped over half the charges.

    The charges that went to court all dealt mostly with whether or not the Dr. Tiller used for second opinions was an employee of his are not.

    The court did not get into individual abortions and whether the mother actually had an irreversible health condition. All those types of charges were dropped when the original prosecutor was fired.

    I um realize that pro life like pro choice is a catchy phrase for a particular movement and not a philosophy of life. It pertains to abortion; end of story.

    No, it doesn't but "murderer" appears to be the word of the day.

    The pragmatic side of me also sees the monetary benefits of late term abortion (yes, I know it sounds cold hearted).

    If you have a baby that that is going to die shortly after birth you have the costs of hospital & professional fees for the birth as well as hospital and professional fees for the baby, even if it only lives an hour, followed by funeral expenses.

    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    Don McKinney had been hired to investigate Dr. George Tiller, one of the few doctors in the nation to perform late-term abortions. McKinney has previously protested outside Tiller's clinic. His last day will be Saturday.
    Geez, it seems clear that the guy had a political axe to grind. Dontcha think it's a little strange to have someone investigating the doctor after having protested outside his clinic?

    Nice dodge. Too bad you didn't answer the question.

    are you sure you have this right this time? you were forced to admit when you entered your first version of this event, that you had posted incorrect information re who was fired

    I wasn't forced to admit anything. I made a mistake and got mixed up in regards to DAs and state prosecutors. No biggie IMO. If you think I'm wrong again point it out. The information is widely accessible, easily gotten, and all over the net.
