Woman-Hating, Anti-Choice Lawmakers Force Women to Carry Terminal Fetuses

Here's another example of women forced to endure yet greater pain and anguish because of laws passed by exceedingly self-centered or megalomaniacal lawmakers. In its male supremacist legislature 0f 49 members, Nebraska has 11 women (and zero women in the U.S. Congress).

Like they say, if you don't have a seat at the table, then you are probably on the menu:

Robb and Danielle, left alone in an exam room, held each other and discussed what to do. They just couldn't see the logic in exhausting painful, expensive medical procedures after being told they had almost no chance to save their baby's life.

They decided: There are worse things than death. "So (the perinatologist) came in, and we said we'd just like to put an end to this nightmare and can you help us. She said, no, she can't," Danielle said.

The perinatologist said Nebraska's abortion law, which had been in effect less than two months, would not allow Danielle to terminate her pregnancy because her baby still had a heartbeat and because her own life was not immediately jeopardized.
