In contradiction to state law, abortions are administered via computer screen by doctors at remote locations.
The Attorney General for the State of Iowa, a Democrat, didn’t rule on the case. He pawned it off to a County Attorney.
The Democratic Party didn’t raise a peep.
So Iowa is the first state to offer telemed abortions.
In contrast, Democrats are interceding against the state Department of Education’s decision to allow teleschool education.
They are demanding that the Attorney General issue a legal opinion on the legality of education dispensed online.
The Attorney General is not pawning off this issue. He is planning to rule on the case.
I’m certain Democrat’s most powerful constituency, the teachers union, is hoping the Attorney General rules against this potential competitor.
By the same token, another key Democratic constituent, Planned Parenthood, had a vested interest in the Attorney General looking the other way as they rolled out telemed abortions throughout the state.
So here’s the question we’ll be following: do Democrats believe that the internet is an appropriate and legal way to expand the reach of abortion; but that it is not an appropriate and legal way to expand the reach of public education?
