    doing its dead-level best to relegate itself to the Dark Ages.  Far as I'm concerned, they're very successful.

      I will never, ever spend 1 tourist dollar in that awful, ass-backwards country.

      And the fetus was already dead and decomposing from the woman's early miscarriage: as so often happens, it was not completely expelled

      They just let her lie there and develop sepsis.

      I hope her husband can somehow sue the hospital and doctors for letting this happen, but they will probably hide behind the church -- not enough guts and compassion to help her in spite of the law and their oath.

      I always knew the RC Church cared more about the partial remains of a dead, rotting fetus than a live woman.

      And Catholics, please spare me--I grew up in that awful religion.  I think it has been the most evil institution in the history of the world.
