Abortion in prison?

PRISON-WOMEN-CHILDRENEach year, millions of women—some of whom are pregnant—enter U.S. jails and prisons.  For those faced with an unwanted pregnancy while incarcerated, access to abortion services varies widely, according to the Guttmacher Institute.”

“Incarcerated women wishing to terminate a pregnancy face numerous challenges; among them are facilities’ ad hoc responses to abortion requests, difficulties in making transportation or financial arrangements, and the requirement of obtaining a court order”

I’m still trying to figure out how a woman gets pregnant in prison.

“Incarcerated women retain their right to have an abortion”, the article says further. I thought the point of prison is to take rights away from someone that has apparently taken advantage of them in the first place.

Isn’t it true that a convicted felon cannot own a gun or vote, but while IN PRISON you can obtain an abortion? And a constitutional right to do so? How ABSURD is this?

I’m certainly no rocket scientist, but how can your constitional right to vote and bare arms be taken away but you can kill an innocent child?
