DVRed Chicago episode of House Hunters just cut off right before they announced their pick
My name is Anna. I am in my mid-twenties. I was born in Poland. I grew up in Chicago. I lived in London. And now I'm back in the Windy City. Here are the snapshots of my life: professional, social, and a tiny bit of the really personal. firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
If there’s one thing I’m not “with” with my Polish peeps, it’s their ultra Catholicism (much to my Babcia’s dismay).
We are 2 humans with some serious summer colds and 1 canine with a very painful UTI.
