  1. This is soooo tragic … and will undoubtedly be repeated in the U.S. (One wonders how much the states will try to “hide” such incidents.)

    IMO, this is the MOST IMPORTANT statement from the article — The avoidable death of Halappanavar, who was 17 weeks pregnant, proved that doctors — not politicians, police and judges — should help decide the best course of action.

    1. Hello Nan. Yes, a live woman died because of laws that protected a fetus that has yet to be alive. Yes it has cell life, yes it is developing, but in this case the doctors said the fetus couldn’t survive but they need to wait until it was fully dead, in which time the woman lost her life. They are trading the existing life for the possible one. I know this doesn’t bother Alito and the others religious fanatics on the court because they don’t see the woman as having any other real function. Giving birth and being a mother is the natural function god intended for women and they don’t need and shouldn’t want anything else. Men may have dreams, desires, goals, careers, and seek enjoyment, but women need none of that per their god. All in their minds of course, most of the world and country disagree and see women as human people with the same emotions and potential as men. But I really think that is what is at the heart of the matter for a lot of anti-abortion people especially men, they just don’t see the woman as an equal humans same as men, but an inferior person born to only one purpose.
