Pro-Lifers get Web-Savvy

A new Oklahoma law requires women getting abortions to fill out a questionnaire, which will then be posted online. For research purposes, of course. A brilliant move on the pro-lifers' part, I have to admit. What would make a woman in such a situation blanch more than the possibility of all her neighbors knowing. As Tres Sugar notes:

Even though the questionnaire does not ask for name or address, the first eight questions alone most likely would be enough to identify a woman in a town of 200 or less.
