APPLETON, Wis. — Darshana Patel told authorities she was suspicious as she watched her boyfriend stir a smoothie at an ice cream store. When he offered it to her, she noticed powder on the cup’s rim, and the pregnant woman feigned illness and didn’t drink it. According to a criminal complaint, the woman says she sent the powder to a laboratory and it turned out to be mifepristone, the abortion pill also known as RU-486.

The abortion zealots will no doubt continue to insist the man did nothing wrong. And everytime they do that, they lose another few points in public opinion and even change some people’s minds about abortion. If they don’t squawk, we win. If they do squawk, we win. Who doesn’t win are vulnerable women and the unborn child. And if this kind of stuff is going on with pills, what about the other forms of DIRECT coercion by “boyfriends” to abort which, really, is almost as heinous? Come on. This whole abortion thing is simply thuggery and intimidation of women to do what they don’t want to do.
But for abortion fanatics, that doesn’t matter. What matters is keeping the right to kill legal, regardless of who needs to get mowed down to preserve it.
