Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”

Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.

The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:

During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with

Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family. 

I just. Why? Why the fuck would they think that this is a good thing?

This isn’t just about the topic of being pro-life or anti-life anymore.

This is about having a proper human conscience. 

Who, in the right fucking mind, would choose to let a child die a slow and painful death, over a swift, merciful one?

Details aside, the story basically tells that the doctors let the child suffer. They let the family suffer. Over the guise of "saving a life", and doing "heroic work". 

They basically said: “Well, the baby’s out. I don’t care what happens to it anymore. That’s your problem. Not ours. …What do you mean we have responsibility over it? It’s your child. You take care of it.” 

No care about the welfare of the family. No mention about the psychological scarring that the parents—especially the mother — went through. 

These people don’t deserve glory for their actions. They deserve to have the same kind of death that the poor child went through.

Fucking idiots, you people are.

GFDI…this is a huge part of why I changed my stance on the issue after I got some real world experience. No one will ever force an abortion on someone, but there are plenty of people who will force people to go through this.

One thing I’ve realized that I’m doing more and more: if I play as a male Create-A-Character, I play as me. For instance, Mecha Shepard from my Mass Effect playthrough is based on the decisions I would make.

But, if I play as a girl, a la Dark Souls, they become more of an actual character. Especially in Dark Souls, but also in Fallout 3…I find I want to protect them more, like…well, a character.

Not exclusively for girls - my GTA Online character is a dude, and he’s gotten the same treatment - but it’s definitely more towards female characters than anything else.

make me choose > t4lizorah asked: vanguard or engineer

"Vanguards are feared for their high-risk, high-reward
combat style, closing quickly on enemies and destroying them
at short range with weapons and biotic abilities. They are
outfitted with L5n implants, enabling them to perform a biotic
charge that strikes the opponent with incredible force while
bringing the Vanguard in for close-range combat.”
