    abortions, everyone who can't have a child has made that decision prior.....these abortions are the ones where the baby was wanted but something is wrong......and the pain thing is TOTAL BS.

      pregnant woman was in a car accident, went into a coma, and the doctor recommended an abortion because it would increase her chance of survival and the chance she could heal and come out of the coma.

      The husband was willing to do this and signed the paperwork but some rightwing nuts tried to stop him and went to court trying to get custody of the fetus.  

      It was so long ago but I remember it because I was so appalled that these nut cases who were strangers to this woman, wanted to stop the doctors from doing what was medically reccommended that could save her life..all they cared about was the baby.

      There are some rightwing nuts who think it is noble that a woman be willing to die so her baby can live..they feel we should always choose the fetus over the health of the mother and over everyone else who is living.
