They had a Law and Order SVU episode about this. They kept putting the girl off, telling her she had a "fever" and they couldnt do the procedure. Soon she went past the legal limit for abortion. So she and her boyfriend beat on her stomach until the baby died As you know Im not for abortions, but I think this is totally wrong. You just cant lie to people like that, especially about healthcare. Its just wrong.

I don't know--do they have a sign outside that says "Abortion Clinic" or is it more like "Crisis Pregnancy Center."

If they clearly advertise themselves to be abortion providers, and then don't, then that's not right. But if they don't definitively state that abortions are available there, then I think they're not in the wrong.

I also think that while they might invade privacy, they don't really prevent "decisional autonomy" (wow--there's a new term). A woman can always go elsewhere to get an abortion--there's plenty of people out there that are more than happy to do one for her.

I wouldnt say that. Some women have to travel hours, go to different states. Women in rural areas generally have zero acess to abortion and sexual health clinics.

They aren't on every street corner if the state has one at all.

I think it's wrong to abuse of the vulnerability of these women. I think it's hard enough to get your head around an unexpected pregnancy without having people using that moment where you are emotionnaly vulnerable to promote their agenda.

Wow that is sick. I got pregnant when I was 18 and I didn't find out until I was 3 months pregnant. By that point I'd had 3 X-rays, 2 CAT scans, and a bone scan with irradiated dye. Unfortunately, since none of my doctors ever gave me a pregnancy test, my unborn child would have had multiple problems and would most likely not have survived childhood if it survived pregnancy. I chose to abort to save my child that pain. If someone would have told me they couldn't do the procedure or tricked me into believing I wasn't pregnant I might have died giving birth alone or given birth to a special needs child that I couldn't have cared for and would have suffered terribly until it faced an untimely death. That seems worse to me than just letting women make the choice and receive proper care.

I would sue for malpractive hun. I wasn't even sexualy active at 18 & they made me have a pg test before the hospital would even do an Xray - it's standard here. I have known personally several people that found out they were pg from those same type of "pre-procedure" pg tests. You really should have sued them. If you are of an age where you are sexually active or potentially could be - they are supposed to test you first.
