One of the most vicious lies of abortion-rights activists— admittedly a stiff contest — is that abortion-pill reversal is harmful and useless. In fact, it appears to be successful much of the time, and it’s perfectly safe for mother and baby.
My April piece at @NRO on the science of abortion-pill reversal and the political fight that abortion providers are waging against it:…
@NRO What I’d like to know is what’s “pro-choice” about abortionists refusing to inform women of a safe and effective way to reverse an unwanted chemical abortion? What’s “pro-choice” about actively blocking them from finding that information online?
@NRO The “women’s rights” movement doesn’t trust women at all. They want to hide options like abortion-pill reversal because they don’t support a woman’s right to do what she wants with her body — they support her choosing abortion, that’s it.

A few fast facts on abortion-pill reversal:
–it’s a high dose of progesterone that can help undo the negative effects of Mifeprex on the unborn baby and the uterus
–the American Society for Reproductive Medicine has affirmed that progesterone is safe in pregnancy
–even the development trials for Mifeprex suggest that high doses of progesterone are effective at reversing a chemical abortion in progress
–the largest case series studying APR found that about 70 percent of women who used it were able to reverse their chemical abortion
–the same case series found that women who received successful APR treatment had no increased risk of complications or birth defects
–abortion providers have sued states for requiring that women be informed about APR in the process of obtaining a chemical abortion

“She’ll tell me she wants brain, and we’ll ... leave the calvarium in till last, and then try to basically take it, or ... catch everything and keep it separate from the rest of the tissue so it doesn’t get lost.” -Dr. Deborah Nucatola, medical director at Planned Parenthood
“You’re just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver...” -Dr. Deborah Nucatola, medical director at Planned Parenthood
“...So I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m going to basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.” -Dr. Deborah Nucatola, medical director at Planned Parenthood

There are few things I hate more than when pro-lifers, and especially people who I think of as friends, turn their intellectual disagreements into personal attacks on one another rather than figuring out how and where they agree. This issue is too important to turn personal.
I so wish that, instead of launching Twitter broadsides, we could all focus on the brutal reality of abortion, the gruesome truth of what exactly happens in each procedure, and remember that these horrors are far more important than personalizing fights over legal philosophy.
What is all of this really about: those poor babies, and their mothers, and the fact that they deserve so much better than abortion? Is it about sincerely trying to end this evil together? Or is it about who’s has the correct view of originalism?

Cancel culture is an outgrowth of the idea that the articulation of certain views or phrases causes literal harm and therefore must be silenced. I can’t understand that thought process at all. It can only end in state-policed speech and systematic punishment of wrongthink.
This idea is so far from my natural inclinations that I have a hard time fathoming it. I could name all sorts of views that I think are evil, but I cannot imagine trying to cope with that by demanding that people who articulate those views be anathematized.
I think people who advocate legal abortion are defending the killing of human beings. That’s about as evil an idea as I could imagine. But never in a million years would it occur to me to respond to that by demanding those people be silenced or fired or otherwise punished.

At no time in its 2000 year history has the Catholic Church determined its teaching based on public-opinion polling, but naturally “Catholics” for Choice doesn’t care about that!
We’ve shifted from pretending that polls dictate Catholic teaching to pretending that the Catholic Church is trying to control everyone in America
The lack of coherence makes sense though because Catholics for Choice recently hired a world-class Twitter troll and Human Rights Campaign alum as their comms director

Trying to do some casual reading about saffron tonight only to discover that @TheBabylonBee seems to have taken over @bonappetit’s editorial staff Image
@TheBabylonBee @bonappetit Not even the history of spices can be free of the toxic nonsense of identity politics and related guilt-mongering, apparently
And in case anyone was worried, there are an additional two paragraphs in the editor’s note explaining at great length how the U.S. sanctions against Iran have ruined saffron, possibly forever
