Preach, vagina doctors, preach.

You may have heard that Illinois representative Joe Walsh said yesterday that there’s no need to allow for abortion when a woman’s life is at risk, because it never happens. “With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance,” he said during his debate against Tammie Duckworth.

(This is one of those things that falls under commonplace
jackassery in my opinion, so I didn’t post about it. Feel free to Google Joe
Walsh abortion if you want more info.)

What IS news is that the American Congress of Obstetricians
and Gynecologists just issued a statement correcting Walsh, saying, “These
inaccurate comments are yet another reason why The American College of
Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ message to politicians is unequivocal: Get out
of our exam rooms.”

(There’s also a link at the end to an excellent article in
the New England Journal of Medicine to the same effect. There may be a post
just about that one soon.)
