Can someone please explain something to me? Please read the link first.
OK, you back? Here's my problem.
Massachusetts allows abortion on demand. A Google search found several options for abortion clinics in the state. And yet, she's accused of killing her unborn child? How can that be, when she can go down to the local clinic and pay someone to do it?
I asked the same question years ago, when a local midwife was accused of killing an unborn child. See, home midwifery is illegal in Illinois. She was at a home birth, and, sadly, the child died. The parents did not charge her. They said they supported her and that she had done all she could; they continued to do so throughout her trial. The State of Illinois charged her. I asked this question of my OB/GYN, and his response was, "I don't know what to tell you." Although he was pro-medical birth and "didn't like" home midwifery, he was supportive of the idea that parents have the responsibility of making such decisions and that life begins at conception.
I asked it again a few years later, when a local teen was charged with killing an unborn child. He had been driving irresponsibly (way too fast) and caused an accident which, although the mother lived, killed an unborn child. But how can that be a crime in Illinois when, like Massachusetts, she could have gone down to the local clinic and paid someone to do it?
Have I lived too long? Am I clueless? Tell me where I've misunderstood something.
