A Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to up to 18 months in prison for obtaining so-called abortion pills online and providing them to her teenage daughter to end her pregnancy.
Jennifer Ann Whalen, 39, of Washingtonville, a single mother who works as a nursing home aide, pleaded guilty in August to obtaining the miscarriage-inducing pills from an online site in Europe for her daughter, 16, who did not want to have the child.
Terrible situation, but reporting is OK so far. There are some details on how difficult and expensive it would be to access abortion at a clinic.
After taking the pills, the daughter had complications, was admitted to hospital, where nosy-parkers called the police. And now here they are.
Did you catch the key point there?
The story continues.
The Pennsylvania case follows the prosecution of a Florida man who pleaded guilty to tricking his girlfriend into taking an abortion pill. He was sentenced in January to 13 years in prison and $28,500 restitution. In June, Florida toughened state law to allow for prosecutions in the death of non-viable fetuses.Totally the same, right? Mother tries to help her daughter end unwanted pregnancy. Man tries to trick girlfriend into abortion/miscarriage.
And this is a Reuters story that has been picked up by every MSM outlet I can find.
But the Fetus Freak media has a bit of additional information: the woman got off easy.
In addition to the prison sentence, Montour County Court of Common Pleas Judge Gary Norton ordered Whalen to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 40 hours of community service upon her release. The maximum penalty for performing an illegal abortion in Pennsylvania is seven years in prison and a $15,000 fine.
And don't forget: this is the same RWNJ demographic who goes batshit over parental consent regulations. They demand the right to
These people want the right to force their children to bear children but want parents who help their children avoid bearing unwanted children to go to prison.
