“a woman’s rights”

The NYTimes has a series of pieces exploring what happens as ‘More and more laws are treating a fetus as a person, and a woman as less of one,  as states charge pregnant women with crimes…

A woman studying nuns in the middle ages told me recently that nunneries were often seen as refuges from too-often fatal pregnancies.  Reading the Times’ series one feels pregnancies can be dangerous, not so much physically as legally.  The series is so full of details that it is, as far as I cn see, goood material for classes.
