The Precise Details

This passage from the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act made me choke on my Fresca:

Whether to have an abortion requires a difficult and painful moral decision . . . which some women come to regret. In a decision so fraught with emotional consequence, some doctors may prefer not to disclose precise details of the abortion procedure to be used.

Well, of course they don't want to reveal the precise details! After all, if a woman learns that her doctor is about to remove from her womb her seven-month-old, fully formed fetus, except for the head, suck out the brains and then crush the baby's skull, she might be so horrified by this barbarity that she'd walk out of the abortion clinic--and that would cut into the abortionist's income. 

This passage offends me because it suggests that women are such fragile, emotional creatures that we need the strong men (Supreme Court justices, abortionists) to make important decisions for us. And the feminists are going along with this? Oh, wait--they're the same empowering bunch who don't want women to see pictures of their unborn babies on ultrasound.

Did it ever occur to the justices that the reason many women regret their abortions is because they were deceived, not only about fetal development, but about the sadistic way their babies' lives were extinguished?
