Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
Unfortunately Driver Friendly is not playing the Shred Shed anytime soon, but they did just recently release a wonderful album that you should probably listen to?
We’ve set up a sort of make shift memorial for Mihir and Sajaad at the Quarry. It’s at the corner of Eagle and Aurora, across from municipal and Naperville settlement. Please feel free to drop off flowers, jerseys, running shoes, pictures, notes, whatever you’d like, please feel free to do so. I will be here every night around 9 to put up the candles and hang around for a few hours after. If you’d like to stop by feel free to.
I had planned on spending the next two weeks heavily promoting the Great American Goodbye, with Mihir and Sajaad’s passing my time needs to be spent attending to my friends, but I don’t want to postpone the album release, I don’t want to do that to our fans and that is not what Mihir would have wanted (or maybe he wanted the band to break up, not sure).
If any of our fans would like to help with promotion, please message me and I’ll walk you through it. As always, thank you for the outpouring of support for us in this difficult time
Mihir, one of my good friends growing up, and Sajaad, another friend from high school died in a car accident Saturday morning

Arkham was hands down awesome. I seldom see a band full of personable dudes that actually care about the DIY music scene as a whole, not just locally. They are passionate about music and they show it in their performance.
