    these people won't be happy until there are dead women and dead fetuses in the street, will they?
    On more personal level, fairly early in my career, on our medical floor we had a pregnant 21 year old who had lymphoma during her 5th pregnancy. And yes, I gave her chemo, the dark ages of chemo, while trying to listen to fetal heart tones. She declined termination . Unfortunately, she died before the due date and so did the fetus. It was one of the hardest thing I ever did and would not wish this on anyone.
    And  to think these dumb ass politicians know what to do is just beyond belief.

    What do we want? Universal health care! When do we want it? Now!
