I agree with your point above. But I think you're missing the point made in what I posted, which is surprising since I highlighted it for you. Many people are using this case as evidence that abortion should be illegal. The facts are that if abortion was made illegal there would be more cases like this, not less. It's common sense, but of course common sense is not common. The solution isn't to make abortion illegal. The solution is to avoid unwanted pregnancies. This is probably best accomplished by way of education and birth control, but of course there are interests on the right that don't want either of these things for various reasons. So these same interests are actually making the problem worse.
