Categories: Consequences of Banning Abortion
From change.org comes this article about a woman in Iowa that was arrested after she told an ER nurse that she hadn’t always been sure she’d wanted this baby. She spent two days in jail for that thought crime. There’s more to the story of course, but at the end of the day the reason she was jailed was for admitting that she had previously thought about an abortion. More from fiver at Daily Kos.
So many problems in the world, but thankfully there’s one nurse who’s willing violate patient confidentiality and HIPAA rules to save a poor women from her impure thoughts.
