A young mother of my acquaintance is vehemently anti-abortion. To her “all life” is precious and should be protected, and abortion should never be allowed for any reason. She strongly supports the idea of “personhood” being established at the moment of conception.

She is also quite vehement about wanting to have her anti-anxiety medications to help her cope with the pressures of pregnancy and being the mother of multiple small children. Medications which most recent medical knowledge says can cause miscarriages and birth defects.

Wonder how she’ll feel when some law enforcer tells her that she can’t take her precious medications on which she is so totally dependent, because they might result in a spontaneous abortion?
