Her and her husband begged the hospital to save her life. They flat out refused even though there was no hope for the fetus. That is immoral and disgusting and I am grateful that it is angering the rest of the western world. Those who would watch a woman die for the symbolic gesture of not performing an "abortion" on a dying fetus deserve all the scorn they get.
The difference is that a woman chooses an abortion. This woman did not choose to die to appease someone else's religious sensibilities.
But hey, if you want to compare the number of women who die from abortion vs. childbirth you'll see that abortion is safer.
You do not know there was no hope for the baby
American Journal of Orthopsychiatry in 2002 published a study that looked at 173000 abortions for California women and death records linked to births by Medi-Cal payments. Found that women were almost twice as likely to die in the following 2 years. 63% more likely to receive mental care in the 90 days following an abortion than giving birth. Study found an increased level or mortality for at least 8 years. Over 8 years studied, women who aborted had a 44% higher risk of death from natural causes, 154% higher risk of death from suicide, and 82% higher risk of death from accidents
Study from Finland discovered within 1 year the risk of dying from abortion is several times higher than from childbirth or miscarriage
