    Some deluded soul commented that there would be many more such cases if abortion were legalized. What a justification! If they only would open their eyes to the carnage already taking place in the name of "women's health".

    This report doesn't report the 8th count was a woman who died of a perforated uterus because of the good doctor's recklessness.
