Those who know me are aware that this issue is a hot button for me. I have always been pro-life, but I can tell you, after holding my daughter in my hands for the first time when she was born 14 years ago, I can't imagine myself being any other way.
It is unfortunate that some stood in the way of requiring informed consent to be offered face-to-face by a doctor within 24 hrs before the procedure. To get around existing laws, some abortionists currently have a recorded phone message for those seeking an abortion. Now imagine if you were having gall bladder surgery or bone surgery or any other surgery, and instead of meeting with your doctor, you just listened to a recorded message. This may seem odd, but this is how an abortionist provides consultation.
