California prides itself on being the most pro-choice state in the union. No parental consent laws, no waiting periods, no restrictions of any kind if they can help it.
So why would a 31-year-old San Bernardino woman, living in an age of legalized abortion, with an appointment in only two days for an abortion attempt one at home with the aid of her boyfriend, risking (and ultimately losing) her life in the process?
And don't tell me she was afraid of protesters. Planned Parenthood alone has so many clinics in the LA metro area that the pro-life advocates out there can't possibly cover them all that thoroughly, and the general cultural and political atmosphere of the area is heavily in favor of abortion.
