Implications are Everything

Does anyone else notice that in this post about a woman being arrested for the mere suspicion of an attempted abortion, no one seems to consider the possibility that the reason that the polcie went so far overboard may be because this incident (presumably) didn't happen in the U.S. with people who have U.S. ideas of justice and probable cause?

The woman is reported to be Indian, and the newspaper report is from a Bahrainian newspaper. Whether this happened in India or to an Indian alein in Bahrain, or happened elsewhere is not clear. But there is precious little evidence here to support the idea that something like this will happen here.

That is all.
