When abortion is illegal…

Right now, a slew of states are gearing up to pass laws like South Dakota’s abortion law. American Senators (Tennessee…I’m looking at you…) have said that women who have abortions should be prosecuted for murder. What happens when abortion is criminalized? Well, El Salvador knows. Some women are serving 50 year sentences, while their other children starve on the streets because the only wage earner has been imprisoned. “In the event that the woman’s illegal abortion went badly and the doctors have to perform a hysterectomy, then the uterus is sent to the Forensic Institute, where the government’s doctors analyze it and retain custody of her uterus as evidence against her.”

Not only that, but if a woman has an ectopic pregnancy, where the egg is fertilized in the fallopian tube…a pregnancy that cannot ever be successful, the woman is forced to wait until her fallopian tubes burst before the doctors can do anything. That’s right, saving the life of a breathing, living woman is less important that keeping a zygote “alive” for a few more days.

These dead women, these raped women, these imprisoned women, these starving children, these child prostitutes, these second class humans have been brought to you by the Catholic Church and Opus Dei. Because according to them; Jesus was a vengeful god who would want sluts to suffer. After all, only sluts would get pregnant and not be happy about it.
