That is a link to the story, which I'm sure you've all heard about Planned Parenthood refusing to show records of women who obtained late term abortions.
If they were really all for "medical reasons" why won't they let us know exactly what those reasons were? The names and addresses would be taken out, so I don't see how it's a matter of privacy. The court wasn't asking for the name of any woman and her specific reason. They simply wanted to know what in general the problem was and why a late term abortion necessary. I don't see how that's an invansion of privacy.
For example, if my OB wanted to talk about my particular pregnancy to another person I wouldn't have a problem with it as long as she didn't use my name. If she said "I have a patient, who has gained a lot of pregnancy weight, and is expecting a girl in August..By the way she had an abnormal pap in early pregnancy." I wouldn't have a problem with that...I wouldn't feel like my rights were violated. Now if she used my first and last name I would be upset. But just a general story outline isn't an invansion of privacy.
Why shouldn't I be led to think that some of the abortions were not for medical reasons?
