The studies are flawed as evidence because they only cover approved and performed procedures in which the only legal course is if her health was at risk. Only a study done on reasons given, even if not granted and studies in a region in which it is not law that only health risk abortions are allowed would be valid. Falling back on a flawed premise for the study is nonsense. You're claiming hat a study done in which they were only allowed to do it for health reasons proves your point that they would only do it for health risks. Really?! You ignored the fact that 17 year old girl circumvented the law and went to extremes. If it was legal, she would have killed another human being easily- and gotten away with it. Now, she's facing time as she should. This is a straw man argument to anything I've said. Agreed. But this does not address the position I advocated at all. Yes, it really is a shame about the Mormons and their marital practices... wait- What?
