Pained by Choice

After a while, even the most hardened doctors would admit it gets to them. For Dr. Anthony Levatino, it happened suddenly. He was in the middle of a dismemberment abortion -- holding the first piece of the baby he'd torn apart -- when he abruptly stopped. "I didn't want to continue," he said. "But I had to, because... if we don't get all of the parts out, the woman will get sick, get an infection, [or] even die." He kept working. But by the end, when he looked at the pile of little body parts he'd removed -- a pile similar to the dozens he'd made before -- something was different. "I didn't see the woman's 'right to choose' or the $800 cash I'd made in 15 minutes. I saw somebody's son or daughter."

CONCORD, Calif. -- Life Legal is working with the brother of a 52-year-old man who is being denied life-saving medical treatment at a California hospital in violation of a court order.

Wayde Luce, 52, was admitted to John Muir Hospital in Concord, California, on January 23 for emergency dialysis treatment. Contrary to his family's wishes, the hospital gave Wayde Fentanyl and Ativan-two powerful drugs that cause central nervous depression. According to the CDC, Fentanyl is 100 times more powerful than morphine. Wayde's brother, Dale Luce, asked the hospital not to sedate Wayde. Wayde was anxious and nauseous and Dale was concerned he would choke on his vomit if he were sedated.

The Secret Life of Wisconsin Kids

Imagine dropping your son off at school, never knowing that he lives a completely different existence as a girl for eight hours a day -- and everyone knows it but you. And not only do teachers know it, but they go to great lengths to hide it. That's the reality in Madison, Wisconsin, where moms and dads have been furious to find out that not only is the district keeping their children's gender expression a secret, but there's an elaborate scheme in place to keep parents from ever finding out!
