Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
Personally (and I swear to you I’m not trying to attack or be rude or offend ANYONE) but I think you need to clarify your definition of ‘Pro-Life’. I am Pro-Life, but my opinion is based on the terms of ‘If you’re mature enough to have sex, you need to take responsibility for your actions.’ However, if keeping a child would endanger your own health, or that of the child, such as the example above, that’s when I will keep my mouth shut. That is something that you cannot control, and therefore is a decision that should be made personally, not exclusively because you do not want children.
In the case of rape, it is ENTIRELY up to you. You DO have other options (e.g. adoption), but if carrying the child will endanger your mental health, then do what is best for you. THAT IS NOT AN EXCUSE to be used, but a legitimate fucking reason. I’ve seen WAY too many whores who fuck around and sleep with whomever the hell they want, using no form of contraceptive, that get knocked up and use abortion clinics like they’re fucking public restrooms. THAT is what disgusts me most about certain ‘pro-choice’ advocates, just like most get pissed at things like this article and use it against ‘pro-life’ advocates. It’s a personal decision, but I really think that life is not something to be fucked around with.
Again, if you are mature enough to make a conscious decision to have sex, you need to make sure that you are ENTIRELY capable of dealing with the outcome.
