  •  Because they think women aren't responsible? (1+ / 0-)

    If they consider women second-class citizens, just an incubator, chattle ... if the "pro-life" are treating women basically as children then not charging the woman isn't (IMO) can't  be used as a proof "[these] pro-life activists do not really believe what they say."

    Yes, they scream "murderer" ... but if they figure "any 'real' mother won't murder her children" they figure the woman/child getting an abortion is insane, whatever, ... they are trying to shock the poor girl into growing up & come to her senses.

        ... but she did the wrong thing after doing the right thing for several years, so she should have known better.

        I shouldn't have put "insane" in my post and left it at immature not-grown-up-yet. I think a lot of "glory of motherhood" fanatics don't believe in  psychology.
