No it doesn't. It's precisely the difference in the process that qualifies it as a crime.<quoted text>What if it isn't a homicide but self inflicted. The only difference is, one is a crime the other is not, but the process was the same. Does that explain it?
Your reference to suicide is also not relevant as the comparison has always been a "natural" occurring death vs intentional death caused by outside influence....and the difference between those two.
I agree. But unfortunately the SC erroneously interpreted the Constitution as giving them the right to choose to legally abort. Women do, contrary to your belief, currently have a Constitutional right to choose to abort.I've said it a few times, women do not have a constitutional right to have an abortion,
Regardless of who was criminally prosecuted, if induced abortion were indeed the same as miscarriage as you claim, there would have been no need for RvW.women do not need a constitutional right to choose what to do about her own pregnancy. It was physicians who needed the protection from being criminally prosecuted for performing them after the illegalization in the mid 1800's.
What you're talking about is women being forced to falsely confess to obtaining an illegal abortion despite it being a legitimate miscarriage. Not even sure what your point is with this.<quoted text>It is quite possible some physicians were prosecuted because according to the Journal of American Medicine women were often harassed and denied medical care until she confessed to having had an illegal abortion. What if she didn't and it was a natural abortion? Basically the Salem witch trials all over again. "Confess and name your co-conspirators or else". It was physicians who wanted it illegal and it was physicians who were the biggest supporters of legalization a century later.
My point was no one was EVER prosecuted for a LEGITIMATE naturally occurring miscarriage.
If as you say there is "no difference" between a miscarriage and an induced abortion, then why were these women being forced to confess to something that was no different than a naturally occurring miscarriage ?
Where are you going with this inanity ?
