The Question No One Is Asking

I am pro-life.

I find the practice of abortion to be horrific.

But I’m troubled by the criminal charges this woman is facing.

Authorities are investigating whether a woman whose fetus was found among trash illegally ended her pregnancy by drinking an herbal concoction billed as an abortion-causing tea, a person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to discuss details not made public. The woman, Yaribely Almonte, 20, was arrested Wednesday on a charge of self-abortion after police said her fetus was discovered in a yellow bucket near her Manhattan apartment building. She was released with an order to appear in court in January.

Hold on.

Isn’t the mantra of the feminist movement “her body, her choice”?

Haven’t the courts of our nation, rightly or wrongly, declared that there exists a right to an abortion?

If that’s the case, how can there be charges for a woman causing herself to abort? She is merely exercising her purported right to end her pregnancy.

We don’t punish Americans for praying without the assistance of a member of clergy. We don’t punish Americans for engaging in amateur efforts to write and speak in the exercise of their freedom of speech. How, then, can it be a crime for this woman to exercise her putative "constitutional right to an abortion" without the assistance of a medical practitioner?

Unless, of course, we all really recognize that the so-called right to an abortion is nothing of the sort and is completely unprotected by the fundamental law of America.

Great catch. How in the hell can this woman be charged? It's almost as silly as suicide being illegal -- hey, you're dead, but you're under arrest.

She failed to pay her Planned Parenthood dues. If self abortion catches on they stand to lose a lot of blood money.
