The UW Meriter board voted to APPROVE 2nd trimester abortions.
The chairman spoke up stating that the board had heard much about boycotting the hospital and/or had been been questioned as to "how a hospital with a good reputation like Meriter could get involved with abortions." While chuckling, he stated "We've endured other things..... I now recommend we approve...."
After a very short deliberation, the board returned with a vote of 11-3 in favor of providing second-trimester abortions.
