Dear Editor, This is not about medically relevant information and informed consent. Gov. Perry should have the cojones to come out and say it: "We're shaming you broads." I suppose the hope is that women will be shamed out of exercising their constitutional right to choose. But this is a slippery slope. Shame doesn't stop anything; it just drives it underground. Women who don't want a baby and who are desperate enough will terminate their pregnancies by whatever means necessary. In some cases, maybe they'll have it terminated for them via domestic violence. Already the access to safe procedures is so limited that women and girls take matters into their own hands. And it's not all coat hangers and stairwells, either. Thank the Internet for a host of DIY methods. Women won't simply find Jesus, keep their babies, and trot off to a happy ending. I don't know if the shamers have thought all this through, or if they are just missing the empathy gene. Either way, shame on them.
