Australia's only late term abortion clinic will no longer do late term abortions

Here is another article that got edited down from the Proliferations column.          

In Australia, the only clinic doing late term abortions are aborting that end of the business. They say it is an operational decision as the procedure is  "intensely demanding." The new owner also is aware of the bad publicity when under previous ownership the clinic "made headlines after anaesthetist James Latham Peters allegedly infected more than 50 women with hepatitis C in 2008 and 2009."

The article points out that late term abortions are now more frequently being done by inducing early labor. The casual reader might wonder how this kills the baby....if the birth process of early labor does not kill the infant, the neglect of resuscitation  or care to the pre born child finishes the job since the lungs are the last things to develop. Sound gruesome. It is.... but so is partial birth or dismemberment of the larger baby.

Obviously the Australian version of Planned Parenthood is not happy and say this will lead to more "backyard abortions."
