Under Arrest

Read this very brief article about a New York woman who performed her own abortion. I think the arrest has to do more with abortion as medical procedure than abortion as moral wrong.

Not enough details to make the call right now.

CLARIFICATION: Charlie thinks my comments might lead you to believe that I think abortion is morally benign. That is not so.

What I meant to say: Abortion is wrong, but legal. Was this woman arrested because abortion is against the law, or because abortions are legal only if performed by a medical professional?
