Abortion Restrictions

"Miss. looks to restrict abortions" (Pioneer Press) started out with a boring lead: "The Mississippi Senate passed a bill Wednesday..." They mentioned the 'who' and the 'when' before the 'what' -- which, in this case, is the most important part. Being a more conservative paper, I think it says a lot that they chose to use the following quote by Republican chairman of the Public Health Committee: "What this bill does is regulate these folks that are making money off these young women." By putting this in it's ignoring the real issue: a woman's right to choose. The importance and significance of such a bill being passed really is not about the financial exploitation of women seeking abortion, as this quote suggests.
