Is your position that you want the US to make all abortions illegal? Should women who have abortions or the health professionals who offer that medical procedure go to prison?

2: Yes. In some (but not all) circumstances, that is. Everyone has a right to due process, fair and speedy trial, face their accusers, jury of their peers, appeals, etc. So, realistically, every case is unique and the outcomes are not automatic.
"Magdalene Asylums were institutions for so-called "fallen women", most of them operated by the Roman Catholic Church. In most asylums, the inmates were required to undertake hard physical labour such as laundry work. In Ireland, such asylums were known as Magdalene Laundries. It has been estimated that 30,000 women were admitted during the 150-year history of these institutions, often against their will, sometimes by state order. The last Magdalene Asylum in Ireland closed on September 25, 1996."

You have earned a friend request if you are interested.
It has taken two years of therapy and recovery. My wife now breathes on her own, walks talks, showers and dresses herself (all with diminished capacities). She's very much the same person she was before... but some things have changed. (not all for the better). She still can not read, write, do math or anything like that above maybe a 2nd grade level. But she could have a conversation with you and understand what you are saying at almost any level.
For all that she has left to re-learn, she has to do so with a damaged brain.
I would guess that she's at between 60 and 70% of her old self and while I have hopes,.. I don't see how she will ever be completely independent again.
