    On Nov. 1, a law in Oklahoma will go into effect that will collect personal details about every single abortion performed in the state and post them on a public website. Implementing the measure will “cost $281,285 the first year and $256,285 each subsequent year.” Here are the first eight questions that women will have to reveal:



    1. Date of abortion

    2. County in which abortion performed

    3. Age of mother

    4. Marital status of mother

    (married, divorced, separated, widowed, or never married)

    5. Race of mother

    6. Years of education of mother

    (specify highest year completed)

    7. State or foreign country of residence of mother

    8. Total number of previous pregnancies of the mother

    Live Births

    Miscarriages

    Induced Abortions



    Although the questionnaire does not ask for name, address, or “any information specifically identifying the patient,” as Feminists for Choice points out, these eight questions could easily be used to identify a woman in a small community. “They’re really just trying to frighten women out of having abortions,” Keri Parks, director of external affairs at Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma, said.




    I wonder if this includes women who've received fertility treatments and are "selectively removing" unwanted fetuses to the benefit of the remaining one(s)?

    I could see how both the loony left and the restrictive right would want a law like this.



    No matter who instigated it we need to have privacy in medical decisions including details like those. Well, until the case gets to court in which either the baby killing mother or the baby killing doctor is being tried for murder - but I won't hold my breath.

    I would like to say this is a good thing, but as for now, the murderers call it a medical procedure and therefore private.

    Ummmm....doesn't NAME the incubator, so what difference does it make? The abortion is a matter of public health, why shouldn't reasearchers have easy access to the data?



    The only objection I see is that the taxpayers are being nicked again, there should be a fee for downloading this anonymous data commensurate with the cost of maintaining the site...or advertising could be posted...Trojans, Nuvaring, etc.

    From reading the topic heading that you posted, I was initially outraged. I guess that was the reaction you wanted.



    The thing is, I then read the article. The Feminists for Choice's statetement, however, that a women in a small community could be "easily indentified" was patently false. The questionare narrows it down to the state of residency of the mother and goes no further. It does ask which county the abortion was performed in but not the county of residence of the mother. A state is not a "small community." It would be impossible to identify the women using only the answers to the questions asked.



    The lie on the part of Feminists for Choice makes me believe that it is they who are utilizing scare tactics and the same goes for Keri Parks of Planned Parenthood. They are simply advancing their agenda through misinformation and propaganda.



    Does this information have any useful purpose? I don't know. The article doesn't state why they feel the need to publish the results.



    I will save my outrage for actual invansions of privacy, not for make believe invasions that are perpetuated by those who are simply trying to scare people to their side of an issue.
