Meet Carol Ball, who travels weekly to perform abortions at the Planned Parenthood Facility in Sioux Falls, SD. Peter Sleven of the Washington Post provides a friendly writeup of this abortion provider, now advanced in years, who travels weekly to perform the most common, routine surgical procedure in the US, but one that no resident physician in South Dakota will do.
Sleven recalls the shooting of George Tiller in this article, and this famous late term abortionist of Kansas is likely to be memorialized in every such article for years to come. It is notable that cops, who are willfully killed in the line of duty, are not similarly remembered by the journalists. Perhaps the burden of recalling so many names, or even one per article, is too cumbersome.
Also notable in this account is that age or time seems to reduce the worry about what other people think. At this stage in her life, Carol Ball will publicly admit that she works for Planned Parenthood. In her younger years, she would simply mention, when asked, that she was an obstetrician and gynecologist.
