“Pro-life”

Via here, this is what ‘pro-life’ people want in the US: an absolute ban on abortions:

Doctor say Beatriz could die if she continues with the pregnancy, but have not yet treated her because they fear that if they end the pregnancy they might be prosecuted under the country’s total ban on abortion.

The 22-year-old woman is four-and-a-half months pregnant and has been diagnosed with a number of severe illnesses, including lupus and kidney disease.

Doctors have also confirmed that the foetus she is carrying is missing a large part of its brain and skull, which means it is expected to die before it is born, or within a few hours or days after birth.

It is now more than a month since the hospital requested permission to provide Beatriz with the treatment she needs, but the authorities have still not agreed to it being carried out.

The country’s Penal Code states that anyone seeking or carrying out an abortion could be given a long prison sentence. This means both doctors and Beatriz would be at risk of imprisonment if a termination is carried out.

“Beatriz’s situation is desperate and must not wait any longer. Her very chances of survival depend on a decision from the authorities,” said Esther Major, Amnesty International’s researcher on Central America.

And here is more (the page is translated by Google so the grammar is pretty bad):

But Dr. Carlos Alvarenga, representing the Association of Bioethics of El Salvador, said that “from the perspective of bioethics should preserve the life of both mother and child.

To Alvarenga, “just let her pregnancy progresses.”

To Julia Regina de Cardenal, president of the Association Yes to Life, “the multi-million dollar abortion industry, which includes radical feminist associations, abortion doctors and international organizations towards population control, being used to Beatrice to promote a change in our legislation. ”

From Cardinal argues that “groups that cultivate the culture of death” take advantage of extraordinary cases of minimal statistical incidence, to become emotionally logo and sensitize the public and politicians to achieve the decriminalization of all abortion.

This is what the ethics of the pro-life movement looks like. A fetus that is almost certainly going to die is more important than the woman.
