The woman admits to addiction. However, I rewind to my OP, lots of unanswered questions. Sure you may nitpick one line about Malpractice but
everything else I said coincides with a correct claim about this entire ordeal. Step one is get the information about this case.
I disagree. There is no step one. From a legal and technical perspective nobody did anything wrong. If abortion is going to be legal in all cases,
and we are not going to limit the scope or practice of it, then there is nothing here to talk about. Being a self-described addict is not a
diagnosis, and even if a therapist diagnosed her with some type of personality disorder making her susceptible to addictions such as this, it still
wouldn't preclude a doctor from performing the procedure.
What is the alternative? Should the doc make her give birth to a child and put the child in harm's way? Should a judge order her to be sterilized?
There is no good alternative to this case. Nobody did anything wrong except for the sick woman, but what she did is not a crime.
She wrote a book about herself, but in this thread alone there are people talking about cases almost as bad. Personally, I know of two different
girls that had 2 abortions each in the same summer! Well, actually for one of the girls, one of the abortions was the real deal and one was just the
Morning After pill, but that was still within a few months time. The other girl had two regular abortions..... one in April, one in August.
15 abortions in 15 years is probably a pretty normal amount in certain circles. Horrendous as it may be, it is legal in every way.
The solution is to force abortions to require both parents consent, and only be legal during the 1st Trimester, and only after at least 2 counseling
sessions. Anything after the first trimester should only be for excepted reasons such as rape, incest, or health of the mother, and it should require
a judge to sign off to approve it.
