MORE ABOUT THE UNCLAIMED FETUSES

On June 26, the PDN ran a story about the Mass and burial for 12 unclaimed human fetuses reportedly retrieved from the GMH morgue, and reportedly (from the information received from the Director of Public Health) were the result of miscarriages.

The next day, a story was posted at JungleWatch.info calling into question the claim that all the fetuses were the result of miscarriages, noting that GMH policy discourages "technological support" and recommending only "palliative care" for babies born as late as 27 weeks and weighing less than 750 grams, whereas premature babies in other places, born as early as 21 weeks, are being saved.

SOME ACTUAL FACTS ABOUT GUAM'S ABORTION REPORTING LAW

The following is from a just released PDN story:

Sen. Frank B.

The printed materials provide information about the development of the fetus and about alternatives to abortion. 

"We have not verified whether the law is being followed, as there may be issues related to HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996)," Public Health Director James W. Gillan said in a response letter to Aguon. CONTINUED
