It's never as simple as the simple minded right wing would have you believe. Reliving a time when abortions were illegal will only result in the following:
In Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, a ban on abortion is preventing a 16-year-old girl from receiving treatment for leukemia.
The girl, whose name was not released, needs chemotherapy treatment for her cancer, but is nine weeks pregnant and the chemotherapy treatment would probably terminate the pregnancy, which violates the country's anti-abortion laws, reports CNN.
The Dominican Republic's constitution, Article 37, reads "the right to life is inviolable from the moment of conception and until death."
