“Her situation is very scary legally, because we are seeing the number of clinics dwindle. If women don’t have access to abortion clinics, some will turn to the Internet, and then, will they be charged with a crime?”
— Elizabeth Nash in “A Mother in Jail for Helping Her Daughter Have an Abortion” - NYTimes.com
This is so disturbing. The judge and district attorney are causing abuse to a daughter by sending a mother to jail for helping her child. Women have no privacy or right to their own bodies. These crazy laws are like witch hunts. I remember my friend telling me in high school that there are certain herbs that can cause termination to a pregnancy. Will women be arrested for buying herbs? US is supposed to about freedom but only for certain types of people.
