'Trust women': an empty slogan

"Trust women" was a motto used by the late abortionist George Tiller. But there's absolutely no substance to it.

Consider a recent interview with late-term abortionist Warren Hern, in which Hern discusses the rare abortions he is not willing to perform. At a debate I attended some months ago, Minnesota abortionist David Baram said he refused to perform sex-selection abortions (though he did refer those women to other abortion providers).

Why aren't abortionists "trusting women" with these decisions?

Because the issue isn't about "trusting women" at all. It's about the morality of the act of abortion. Imagine someone using the "trust women" slogan to defend killing 6-year-olds, or "trust men" to argue for the legality of men raping women. It's absurd.
