Would you support abortion under these circumstances?
Alicja Tysiac is a Polish woman who was denied an abortion despite warnings from physicians that she could become blind if she continued the pregnancy. (Link) She was forced to carry her fetus to term, and suffered a retinal hemorrhage following a C-section delivery. Now her condition requires treatment and daily assistance, and she is significantly disabled. She cannot see more than five feet in front of her, and fears going blind completely.
What do you think of this case? Should Ms. Tysiac have been allowed to have the abortion even though her life was not at risk? Is permanent blindness enough of a catastrophic consequence to justify abortion in the minds of people who are pro-life? What about the development of other conditions such as diabetes?
