Texas passed restrictions on abortion clinics supposedly to make the procedure safer to women. As a result of these restrictions, the number of abortion clinics dropped from 42 to 18. These restrictions are going to be reviewed by the Supreme Court of the United States. Funny, the rules don't apply to dentist's offices which have similar risks, in my opinion.
But the law of unintended consequences has reared its ugly head. It is estimated that between
100,000 and 240,000 women in Texas have tried abortions on themselves, using
drugs, alcohol and, yes, punching the fetus in the womb. It is not known
how many of these abortions have been successful and how many women and
fetuses have been injured as a result.
