Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
Today I wore this shirt to school. Not ten minutes into first period I got called down to my principals office and was asked to change my shirt. I was told by the assistant principal that teachers may see my shirt and go off on a tangent from the lesson to talk about it. God forbid we talk about real issues in the world. The principal thought that “people may perceive it as a challenge” to the announcement she made the day before about girls not being allowed to wear short shorts or shirts that expose their midriff. I wasn’t in school that day and had no clue about the announcement. Every girl that i showed the shirt too said it was ridiculous. I checked the school handbook and the dress code and the only offense of my shirt is that it may be “”“distracting”“”
The only reason I didn’t fight back on this issue was because its so close to graduation and I don’t want to risk my graduation being taken away from me. I’m not going to be spent though, I’m already making plans for a new shirt for tomorrow.
It’s ridiculous that the only response you got from this was somebody
When I was in HS I used to get called to the office all the time because my skirts were “too tiny and revealing”.. even though someone who was shorter than me could wear the same tiny skirt and not be told shit. I was a distraction because I had long legs… but other girls could wear whatever the hell they wanted. Didn’t stop me though. I kept wearing my skirts and shorts and didn’t care if they decided to call me to the office and go home.
