Last November it became a crime for a woman to have an abortion in Nicaragua, even if her life was in mortal danger.

"During a visit to Managua in February (María de Jesús González)felt unwell and visited a hospital. The news was devastating. She was pregnant - and it was ectopic, meaning the foetus was growing outside the womb and not viable. The longer González remained pregnant, the greater the risk of rupture, haemorrhaging and death.

What González did next was - when you understand what life in Nicaragua is like these days - utterly rational. She walked out of the hospital, past the obstetrics and gynaecological ward, past the clinics and pharmacies lining the avenues, packed her bag, kissed her aunts goodbye, and caught a bus back to her village."
(And, basically, died horribly.)

Those on here who are anti-abortion (there must be a few):
Would you like to see the US take up a complete ban?
What about ectopic and other "non-viable" pregnancies where God has already decided the baby must die - should the mother and her other children who depend on her die too? Why?
