has been placed online at the ETV1.com web site. It carries the following
Clip - WARNING: GRAPHIC VIDEO
This is one of the most
difficult video clips to watch; actual aborted fetuses. It is gripping,
emotional and almost too tough and strong to watch. This might be the
most devastating anti-abortion statement ever made. WARNING - GRAPHIC
Most of the scenes are taken late-term during D&X abortions and thus are

||2007-APR-26: Mexico: Women have limited
access to abortion in Mexico City: Against overwhelming opposition from
the Roman Catholic Church, lawmakers in Mexico City have authorized
abortions on request for women in their first trimester: i.e. less than 12
weeks from conception. Women who are near the first trimester limit will be
given abortions immediately; those whose pregnancies are less advanced will
have to wait until after the rules are published -- probably during the week
of APR-28. More details.
