Now that's just bizarre

A woman in South Carolina as jailed for doing a home abortion on herself with Cytotec she had her sister send her from Mexico.

Now, how can this woman be arrested for that, when the same thing would be legal if she'd have gotten the Cytotec dispensed by a "clinic"?

Does this make RU-486 abortions illegal in South Carolina, since they're done by the woman to herself? If so, when are they gonna crack down on them? If not, why are they going after this uneducated woman for doing what it's perfectly legal for educated women to do?

Don't get me wrong, I think she did a terrible thing, killing her baby like that, but there's no way she could have known that it was illegal, with abortion facilities advertising all over the place. No doubt she just thought she was saving money doing a perfectly legal thing by herself rather than call in a professional.
