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.
Reblogging again because this is the “good” that anti-choicers do in this world.
Forsake actual people for their oppressive beliefs.
And in the end, did they even really care about the fetus or the family?
One day, that toddler will be telling everyone about the time she went one on one with the great one, pattycaking his candy ass.

NO MOTHERFUCKING EXCUSES
"no excuses" = the great able-bodied circle jerk.
speaking of jerk, if she didn’t have either arms she wouldn’t be able to clean and jerk (or whatever that is, excuse me). is that an excuse?
yeah, some disabled people don’t have excuses. instead, they have VALID REASONS for being unable to do certain things.
what do you call a disabled person who can’t lift 135lbs over their head with one arm? what do you call an ordinary person who can’t lift 135lbs over their head with one arm? lazy? not trying hard enough? physical ability is not the only measure of a person.
on the other side of the coin, i do find this awe-inspiring due to her sheer strength. go ahead and be motivated or inspired start lifting — that’s fine. but “no excuses” is a quick way to say you don’t give a shit about millions of people.
It’s actually bigger than huge.
