In Pennsylvania, state laws require that abortions be performed by physicians. Violating this law carries up to seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine – as single mother, Jennifer Ann Whalen, 39, of Washingtonville, found out when she gave her daughter miscarriage-inducing pills to end a pregnancy her 16-year-old daughter did not want.

    As 2Aer’s are fond of spouting……. gun laws wont stop people from obtaining guns making abortion illegal wont stop people from obtaining an abortion.

      Right you are. I recall that during the 80’s there was a DIY abortion kit being developed in case the Anti-abortion crowd managed to outlaw the procedure. Perhaps we need that to be revised and for it to go into production.

        Yes indeed.
        It is the height of stupidity for an amateur to play doctor and proscribe pills like that for a child.
        I sympathize, but this is just plain stupid, and a nurses aide should know better.
        As her mother, she is qualified to take her daughter to get an abortion but as a nurses aide, she is not qualified to dispense medicine like that. Sorry, but it has to be that way.

    They don’t want the women to have birth control and will go to jail if they end an unwanted pregnancy. Women will take extreme measures to do what they feel is necessary and right for them.
    The fact that they religious nuts think they have more rights than I. Is the reason I will never stop fighting them.

      How do you feel about the occasional religious nut who withholds medical treatment from a seriously ill child? Do those parents have the same right to “take extreme measures to do what they feel is necessary and right?

      Quite a conundrum, isn’t it?
      It’s easily solved by deciding some have more rights than others…….

    The sad pathetic joke is the so called pro life are being used to keep the geopigs in office. Anyone with a brain can see that the scum are actually PRO ZYGOTE. THEY COULD CARE LESS ONCE THE CHILD IS BORN.

    this 16 y/o should have been on birth control. aside from that girls, there’s nothing wrong with demanding a condom or carrying them yourselves.
