  •  The intent of the law (5+ / 0-)

    is that women should die, and each party could point their fingers at the others and claim no responsibility.

    When you wait until a woman is in the process of dying before considering an abortion (or in this case, merely a D&C of dead tissue) that could save her life, the prognosis could only be poor.

    That's what they want. They believe it is God's Will that women should die from the effects of a doomed pregnancy. They believe that performing a D&C after an unexpelled miscarriage is an "abortion".

    The idea that removing a dead or dying fetus is an "abortion" is a very new concept. The idea that it should be prevented from happening even if it kills the woman is barbaric.
