  • Can the Internet save Dr. Hern?
  • – “Blogs and social media allowed for quick, plentiful and vociferous responses; online video clips provided sharp counterpoints to right-wing pundits’ and anti-choice activists’ claims that their rhetoric wasn’t inflammatory; and the availability of women’s own stories countered misinformation about late-term abortions.
