Yet, numerous major news organizations have misapplied these terms to both before and after this period. In spite of the fact that journalism guidelines disparage the use of medical jargon, media outlets selectively employ it in their coverage of this issue. For example, journalists widely use the clinical term “fetus,” but they use the word “mother” to refer to a pregnant woman instead of the more precise and clinical term, “gravida.”Conversely, when the topic is not abortion, reporters often shun the word “fetus” and use “baby” or “child” in its place.
Again, not all women have this experience, but some do.
However, in some cases, treatment of abortion complications is administered only on the condition that the woman provides information about the person(s) who performed the illegal abortion. The practice of extracting confessions from women seeking emergency medical care as a result of illegal abortion puts women's lives at risk. The legal requirement for doctors and other health-care personnel to report cases of women who have undergone abortion, delays care and increases the risks to women’s health and lives. UN human rights standards call on countries to provide immediate and unconditional treatment to anyone seeking emergency medical care.
