She has a medical condition she can live with quite comfortably, but which could make pregnancy a dangerous condition (she doesn’t know, does she? Her concerns are well grounded.). Add to that now an ethics committee could have to weigh in as she’s facing a termination of the pregnancy so she won’t die.
I’ve also known family members who lost pregnancies to miscarriage. Could they today be investigated for murder?
I could happily wish to see Samuel Alito rotting in hell.
