This is what happens when transportation, finances/insurance and no abortion provider play a role in the abortion issue.

Jennifer Ann Whalen, 39, of Washingtonville, a single mother who works as a nursing home aide, pleaded guilty in August to obtaining the miscarriage-inducing pills from an online site in Europe for her daughter, 16, who did not want to have the child.

Whalen was sentenced on Friday by Montour County Court of Common Pleas Judge Gary Norton to serve 12 months to 18 months in prison for violating a state law that requires abortions to be performed by physicians.

She was also fined $1,000 and ordered to perform 40 hours of community service after her release. The felony offense called for up to seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Matthew Bingham Banks, Whalen's lawyer, previously told Reuters criminal prosecutions of this kind were not common.

Whalen told authorities there was no local clinic available to perform an abortion and her daughter did not have health insurance to cover a hospital abortion, the Press Enterprise newspaper of Bloomsburg reported.

Her daughter experienced severe cramping and bleeding after taking the pills and Whalen took her to a hospital near her home for treatment, the newspaper said.

The closest abortion clinic to Whalen's home is about 74 miles away in Harrisburg.

The Pennsylvania case follows the prosecution of a Florida man who pleaded guilty to tricking his girlfriend into taking an abortion pill. He was sentenced in January to 13 years in prison and $28,500 restitution. In June, Florida toughened state law to allow for prosecutions in the death of non-viable fetuses.

Abortions still occur regardless of the legality.

Abortion kills the womans developing child and you're okay with THAT but she shouldn't "abuse" them?

Even more gruesome (in my mind), is keeping a deceased woman on life support long enough to deliver. Or is that urban legend?
So in your opinion, it is better to deliver her preemie and make them spend months in a neonatal unit(with potential life long problems) instead of their mother.

You are free to end your pregnancy with whatever means you have. The legal way is to pay for it to be done by a physician. What these people did in the article was illegal. Rightfully, they should be fined and/or punished.

Well that's a personal opinion and holds no weight with the real issue and that is the number of abortions being performed in the early trimester.

It is a moral question not a legal question. Murdering babies is wrong, it is immoral.
It is your morals which lead you to conclude it's murder which is still your personal belief. I don't agree and I don't disagree because it's your personal belief and you are entitled to it, but no court is going to back you up on that so your morals play no part in the issue except for the fact you personally would never have an abortion because you believe it's murder. I'm not concerned with that.

The problem was that the "abortion industry" was too far away to help the woman, idiot, thanks to ridiculous local legislation. As for paying--it's still medical treatment. However, PP does charge on a sliding scale, even providing free abortions when the woman cannot afford one.

You were saying?

Sure do. If someone is in my apartment without my permission, they'll be leaving--one way or the other--in short order.

If a fetus is in a woman's body without her permission, she can evict it.

Words have meaning, dickweed. Murder, by definition, is illegal. Anything legal cannot be murder. And babies are born.

Planned Parenthood is RACIST. They set up shop in poor inner city neighborhoods so they can kill by abortion Black Babies and Mexican Babies. They do this because they have hate poor Black people and want to wipe them off the face of the earth.
If you support PP you are also a NAZI type master racist who approves of killing of Blacks and Mexicans.
Google Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger and the Negro Project for more information.
There is recent chatter about a comment made by Republican Senator Russell Pearce back in 2010. He said if he were in charge of Medicaid women would be required to use birth control or forced in to sterilization. We know he wasn't referring to upper class white women. So far from what I've read, the majority of the taxpayers who have commented agree that the lower class should not have children they can't afford. Now that could mean they favor two things, forced birth control or more abortions for the poor. This same Senator and others do not support raising the minimum wage and they do not support tax breaks for businesses that would and could provide childcare for low income working families. So if there are more PP in poorer areas, you only have your government to thank for that.

You're an ignorant buffoon. Yes, PP tends to set up in poorer parts of a city--because many such women have little access to transportation. Poor white people tend to live in such areas too. They also try to be on major bus routes. It's about convenience for their potential patients.

Read what Sanger actually wrote instead of cherry-picked nonsense from PLM sites. For one thing, Sanger was against abortion and championed BIRTH CONTROL.

Science. It is impossible to perceive pain without a conscious mind, and the fetal upper brain doesn't even begin to develop until well into the 6th month of gestation--long after 95% of all abortions are performed.
Most women who abort TELL US they don't suffer psychological problems, and their doctors confirm they don't suffer physical damage. Abortion is a very safe, easy procedure in the first trimester.

What kind of nonsense are you spewing. Professionals have sated that unborn children have beating hearts and can feel sensations of pain. You are blinded by your secular atheism. Unborn children are slaughtered everyday because of sexually confused goofs like yourself.

The world is falling apart because of unnatural lifestyles and made up nonsense to justify your crazy world view. Ebola or as it is known in labs, Homobola, is a message from nature that the self adoring and pleasuring lifestyle you and others share is destroying mankind. I study nature and know the religion of the earth. You are in a state of unbalance with nature.

Since you are focused on other men's anuses why worry about unborn children. You make no sense and are part of the problem. I hope we can get back on a path that empowers life and love and not the sadistic anti-life agenda of your ilk.
