News & Opinion


A bortion has to be considered one of the most divisive issues of the last 20 years. What once manifested itself in heated discussions and scathing print material has now turned to murder and terrorism. This week we take two looks at the issue. Metro Pulse's Jesse Fox Mayshark sits down with some of the doctors that face the hatred every day in "Dangerous Practice." Jason Gay of Boston Phoenix delves into the world of the campus pro-lifer, a social progressive you wouldn't normally recognize in this role, in "The Outsiders."

Also in News & Opinion, a look at Madison Avenue's grumpy old man act and Mr. Smarty Pants gives us all the obscure facts fit to print.
