Seventeen years of battles over abortion -- and parental notification has finally cleared the hurdle of the Senate.

Along with this milestone today, another bridge was crossed in the Senate on the abortion issue.
A bill outlawing feticide -- the pre-meditated killing of a fetus outside of abortion -- also passed the Senate on a 26- 13 vote.
That recognizes a fetus as a person in the criminal part of the law.

Abortion rights activists call that the slippery slope toward outlawing abortion.

On one hand, research finds that patients who pay out of pocket for emergency treatment make fewer visits to the E-R.
Patients with the most life-threatening emergencies still come, but those with head trauma, chest pain, asthma and sickle cell complications used the E-R- less often-- possibly hard pressed to know whether their condition is a true emergency.
