The Procedure With No Name

By: Mr. Wilson on September 27, 2005
The first paragraph of this AP dispatch struck me as odd:
The Bush administration has asked the Supreme Court to reinstate a ban on a procedure that critics call "partial birth" abortions, setting up a showdown that could be decided by the president's new choice for the court. [Emphasis added]
So what do supporters call the procedure? Doesn't it have a "correct" medical term? Actually, those questions are largely rhetorical. I just think the reporting style is funny. It's sort of like saying "the President critics call 'stupid neo-con monkey boy' issued a proclamation yesterday...." Come to think of it, that could be rather entertaining.


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

Best of the Web calls it “the practice that pro-abortion journalists call “a procedure that critics call ‘partial birth’ abortion,” or TPTPAJCAPTCCPBA.
