    that the same procedure used in many abortions--D&C--is also used to treat medical conditions other than pregnancy? Geez, I had the Dilation half  in order to get a PAP smear when my cervix decided to refuse to allow the intrusion of a Q-tip used for that purpose. I was cramping so badly --and I am used to bad cramps but this was over the top--when the doctor, bless him, decided that further  torturing me was probably not good for my health and scheduled  the procedure to be done under anesthesia, for which I was profoundly grateful. They couldn't get the smallest dilator rod into my cervix while I was conscious.

    What about women who NEED a D&C  or a D&X because they've been carrying a dead fetus which their uterus hasn't expelled? I guess the possibility of septicemia or future infertility or a hysterectomy is better than teachign a technique that can also be used for abortion.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
