Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

"Wrongful Birth"

(Fox News) - A Boston woman has filed what's being called a "wrongful birth" lawsuit, alleging that a Planned Parenthood clinic botched her abortion, and another doctor failed to notice she was still pregnant afterward.

The 45-year-old woman is seeking child-rearing costs for her now two-year-old daughter and other damages. She says she originally sought the abortion for financial reasons — and believed it had been accomplished until she had to go to the emergency room for pelvic pain about two-and-a-half months before giving birth.

Massachusetts law requires a tribunal to screen the complaint to see if it has merit to go on to trial.
