Abortionist Dies

On the front page (top) of Sunday's Pioneer Press is the headline: "Champion of a Woman's Right to Choose" and the obit line: Dr. Jane E Hodgson, 1915-2006.

Those outside of the state of Minnesota may not know Dr. Hodgson. She was convicted in 1970 for performing a (then) illegal abortion on a Washington County (MN) mother. The 1973 Roe v. Wade decision overturned her conviction. She died of natural causes on October 23, in Rochester MN, at the age of 91.

Dr. Hodgson spent most of her career training other doctors in performing abortions and she helped open several abortion clinics in the state.

According to the article, she was "dismayed" about the upcoming South Dakota vote. She is also quoted lamenting in 2003: "There are just about 12 doctors in the state that are providing all of the abortions, and soon they will be dying off, including myself. I don't know what will happen."

May God Have Mercy on her Soul.

She died of natural causes....well, isn't she lucky! In the US over 3000 babies a day don't get that option.

Only 12 doctors left and they are dying out...hmmm....you think there might be some divine mercy happening there?!

May God have mercy on this foolish woman's soul.
