But even in this case it's not the clear.
Say she gets the abortion and doesn't die. You know what that is? A chance for a no good forced birther to say that this was an "on demand abortion" and someone has to go to jail, because "pain" is not life threatening.
And in fact in America more than one woman has been arrested for having a misscarriage. And indeed she asked for the abortion, so it was on demand. In fact, 22 year old Christine Taylor of iowa was arrested for falling down the stairs while pregnant. Her crime? Attempted feticide. Only an international outcry saved her from facing 15 years to life. But not every woman is so lucky. All over the world women face jail time (and separation from their children for having a misscarriage or being the victim of domestic violence while pregnant or for daring to have an abortion. That's what the forced birth movement is all about. Life has nothing whatsoever to do with it.
This is exactly what every single forced birther knows. When you say the woman has to be forced to give birth unless she is dying there can only be one outcome: Thousands of women AND their fetuses will die. And that's exactly what the forced birth movement is about, forcing women to give birth no matter how many women die.
Wait, are you actually serious? AND IT HAPPENED IN THE US ?
Oh my god...
I AM SO FREAKING LUCKY TO LIVE IN FRANCE
My sister-in-law had a miscarriage then a still born. Well not a still born but the baby would be dead right at the birth so it was pointless to keep the baby. She was 3 months pregnant
And the baby didn't have a cranium
so yeah... and she went in a great clinic where she had an abortion with medicaments and such. They took care of her, and she had two weeks off from work to recover from that. The baby was still alive you know? But she still had an abortion. Even if it happened after the legal limit of the abortion, she would have gotten it.
It's a recent law though (the abortion for medical reasons beyond 12 weeks of pregnancy), from 2002.
I can't find it in english but basically :
: abortion is illegal except if that allows to save the mother's life
: same + in case of rapes
: allowed if mother physically or mentally threatened by the pregnancy or/and rape
white with black dots
: rape, health reasons or social economical reasons
: allowed, but can be restrained by the lack of the care means.
: country where the woman needs her husband's consent to have an abortion
For South America, it's said that even in cases of rape or incest, the abortion can be forbidden.
I am surprised at Australia not even being light grey.
