Pro-life nation

What happens when you completely criminalize abortion? Over the last eight years, El Salvador has found out here:
El Salvador, however, has not only a total ban on abortion but also an active law-enforcement apparatus — the police, investigators, medical spies, forensic vagina inspectors and a special division of the prosecutor's office responsible for Crimes Against Minors and Women, a unit charged with capturing, trying and incarcerating an unusual kind of criminal.

Before we get charged with being in favor of abortion, we will point out that the Respect Life agenda of the New York State Catholic Conference is here:
In the Catholic social vision, the human person is central, the clearest reflection of God among us. From the point of conception to the point of natural death, all human beings are sacred, deserving of respect and worthy of government protection.
