So I'm a bit behind the times, but in recent weeks there was a news story that made me go, "Whaaaaat?" Here's the long and short of it:
A young woman finds herself pregnant and she doesn't want to be. What does she do? She pays a man to beat her up; focusing on the stomach so she'll miscarry the baby, but making it look like a random assault. Guy gets nabbed by the police and fesses up to the whole story. Guy and girl are now both facing charges.
Strange enough story, right?
Here's the kicker though, if you think about it- If she had gone to a clinic and paid a doctor to give her an abortion, she would not be facing criminal charges.
Seriously. I'm confused.
