America legislates hoohaws. Here is what women experts say on abortion.
“Misogynist countries and their governments, still, in the 21st century, feel compelled to create legislation that takes command of women’s reproductive organs,” charges Geraldine Frisque, spokesperson for The RINJ Foundation, a global women’s rights organization.
“With all the medical science knowledge available—but without universal human rights for women—America is on a path of misogyny that will end that empire,” she added.
“The argument is about using abortion as a method of birth control, and this is plainly, murder,” she added.
The strange Texas, USA Governor Greg Abbott who wants children banned from wearing masks in school to protect themselves from COVID-19, and who downplayed novel-coronavirus vaccines, then signed a minority law for the majority of people that according to US National Public Radio, essentially bans induced pregnancy abortions.
Geraldine Frisque, a devote feminist suggested FPMag speak to a trauma surgeon in a war zone.
Dr. Nassima al Amouri is such a person, with experience in women and children’s health issues in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Gaza, the West Bank and Yemen.
“Instead of fighting to control women’s reproductive systems, fight to save every life you can save,” says GBV specialist.
“Normally I refuse to discuss the abortion issue with anyone but a patient but you are my dear colleague, said the doctor, a dear friend and colleague, after three tries to set up a call. She was in Iraq near the Syrian border at a hospital where she had just completed a preplanned but urgent specialized surgery to help a fellow surgeon and her patient in Duhok. She sat at a loaned workstation to do the video call.
“I have never seen a politician scrubbed-in and standing beside me at the O/R table while we are cleaning up and cutting into a pregnant patient who was recued after being crushed in a bombed building,” said Dr. Nassima al Amouri in a calm voice.
“Induced abortion is a medical procedure that is decided in a one-on-one face-to-face confidential exchange between a licensed medical practitioner and their patient. Every single case is different and can only be decided at that moment of doctor-patient discussion. In the alternative, it is a triage decision when we are trying to save any life we can save. When I cannot talk to the patient because of an emergency that caused a loss of consciousness, I consult with my medical peers; or I make the call myself if there is no time. You probably know what that is like, dear sister,” said Dr. Nassima al Amouri.
The patient’s emotional crisis induced abortion decisions bring
“Induced abortion is a medical procedure but more importantly it is a very tough emotional decision between a doctor and the doctor’s patient. It is a decision that lives with the woman and often her family or partner, for a life time. It is not a decision for outrageous, bellicose, manipulative, smarmy politicians a gazillion miles away from the reality of each unique crisis decision that pertains only to a lonely woman’s body,” Geraldine Frisque had said from the outset.
A very lonely crisis for women. The real decision makers are the doctor and the patient or her crisis circumstances, if she is not conscious.
“There are only two occasions in a woman’s life when she is completely alone: facing pending death, or facing a failing pregnancy. Those are gut-wrenching, sobbing, head aching times, brain-squeezing emotional traumas,” explained the doctor.
“I have never seen a politician scrubbed-in and standing beside me to explain to a woman coming out of sedation and a fight for her life, the next day after crisis surgery, when I must tell her she will live and be OK in a month or so but that she has lost her baby. Never.”
Some reasons doctors & women patients consider induced abortion:
Trauma, such as a car accident or a bad fall, medical comorbidities to pregnancy, medical conditions with high mortality in the event of pregnancy, fetal anomalies which indicate terminating the pregnancy to avert a medical event that could take both lives, and other indications may cause a doctor to raise the suggestion to a patient of a pregnancy termination.
“Doctors and their supporting medical practitioners are sworn to save the lives they can save. Leave it at that, trust your doctors,” says the RINJ Foundation. in a statement.
