“Restrictive abortion laws in Northern Ireland affect women’s health, study shows”
“Research from the LBJ School of Public Affairs finds that the country’s strict abortion laws have negative consequences for women’s health and well-being, suggesting a public-health rationale to decriminalize abortion”
“Women’s health”??? How does it affect the health of the presumed large numbers of Northern Irish women who neither seek nor have abortions? Blurring the health of a relatively small part (?) of the population to generalize it (a logical fallacy) to “women’s health” is a red flag that the researchers are grinding their axe on the issue rather than presenting a scientific view. Logical fallacies are not science!
The true scientific fact is that Northern Ireland’s abortion laws, which, the article admits, “permit the procedure only to preserve a woman’s life or prevent permanent long-term physical or mental injury,” can only have “negative consequences” for those Northern Irish women seeking accomplices in assisting infanticide!
On the other hand, the article failed to make the point that the Northern Irish law, as cited in the article at least, fails to make provision for women victims of rape or incest.
One might argue that it isn’t the infant’s fault and the infant shouldn’t suffer capital punishment as a result. Further, Scripture admonishes that children are not to be punished for the crimes of a parent. On the other hand, though, the insemination was against the woman’s will (constructively in the case of incest involving a minor) and she did nothing to deserve the punishment of nourishing and giving birth to an infant forced upon her either.
From insemination and the first cell-division, the infant is new human life, nourished by and within, but otherwise no longer part of, the mother’s body. Killing a fetus as irresponsible recreational-collateral is infanticide, murder.
With such exceptions, women seeking abortions are intent on infanticide. The law against recreational-collateral abortions is designed to have “negative consequences” on mothers intent on infanticide de convenance.
Progressive liberal attitudes toward infants within the body has given rise to increased laxness in mothers’ attitudes toward killing inconvenient children — the “Casey Syndrome” — or abandoning them to the streets and traffickers.
