Disappearing Fast

Our freedom of choice is rapidly disappearing even in advance of court decisions as states rush to change their abortion laws in order to get a case before the newly conservative court. Salon's broadsheet covers a case where a poor woman in Virginia, struggling to raise two children already, became depressed about her lack of abortion options and shot herself in an effort to self induce abortion. Her desperate act will bring a jail sentence rather than the mental health treatment and freedom of choice she really needs.
