Abortion in Poland


A Polish court has awarded $11,000 (7,400 euros) in damages to a woman likened to a child killer by a Catholic magazine for wanting an abortion.

The article also compared abortion to the experiments of Nazi war criminals at Auschwitz.

Alicja Tysiac had been warned by doctors when she became pregnant that she could go blind if she had her baby.

But she was denied an abortion - illegal in most cases in Poland - and her eyesight subsequently deteriorated.

I guess this is the pro-life fantasy. Being pro-life means that you only care about people until the moment they are born. At that point, they turned into evil sinners who deserve a lifetime buring in Hell. Or something.

At least the courts supported the woman, though I doubt $11,000 makes up for blindness.
