  • Attorney General Demands Patients' Private Abortio

    Ashcroft Terrorizes New York Doctors


    Attorney General John Ashcroft has entered into a bitter battle with doctors who perform abortions in New York. In an unprecedented foray into an area usually protected by medical privacy laws, the federal government's top lawyer—who also happens to be a fervent opponent of abortion—is demanding women's confidential medical records from doctors at two local hospital centers. So far, hospitals and doctors have not turned over the documents.

    The Justice Department has subpoenaed voluminous material, including particularly sensitive patient information, according to documents obtained by the Voice. In one case, Ashcroft demanded that a doctor supply the records of patients who have had a certain abortion procedure-even when their fetuses suffered from chromosomal abnormalities and diseases that would have killed them. The attorney general also asked the doctor to provide the names of any companies that funded research related to the method, as well as the names of all colleagues who performed the abortion technique in the past five years.

            Yes, it's true. It was in my paper this morning too.

            I wonder if there is any stopping place in the erosion of civil rights where even republicans would like it to end. Besides Bill Saphire, who decried this issue in today's column.

              When it's a conservative publication you shouldn't pay attention to those facts, because they are obviously biased, but in this case......
              Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

                  I haven't noticed any civil rights I've lost. I am getting a little nervous about liberals infringing on my right to bear arms.

                  Wait, does the government stealing from me count as losing civil rights?
