Telling Pronouns

So, the young woman in El Salvador still waits to see if she can survive pregnancy of a non-viable child.
And the nation has been scolded by an international court for not allowing the abortion that would save her life.

I find the wording of the Salvadoran law most telling:

“Article 4 of that convention, entitled the “Right to Life,” states: “Every person has the right to have his life respected. This right shall be protected by law and, in general, from the moment of conception. No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his life.”

I fail to understand how they can be missing the fact that this “law” is pretty arbitrarily depriving this young woman of HER life. And it will not save the life of the fetus, either. So, two lives at risk of being flushed down a religiously built and maintained moral toilet?

The government seems to want a way out of the moral morass they have been lodged in, saying an early c-section is alright. I hope they don’t waste time dithering about…get that fetus out so that woman can regain her health before her kidneys completely fail!

    Of course, that would be more dangerous to her than a typical abortion procedure. Gah, these people call themselves “pro-life”?

Herland

The name of this blog, and my Dreamwidth blog, Herlander Refugee, is taken from a 1915 feminist novel "Herland". It makes my heart sing that modern women are experimenting with creation of a new "Herland"! Yes, comments are closed. Anyone who just MUST reach me can do so at syrbal6 at gmail dot com.
