If Abortion is Murder then Should the Women be Executed
December 16th 2005
pro-life advocates have said that abortion is the equivalent of
murder. They did not call it manslaughter or an infraction. They
called it murder, a felony. In fact murder is the most egregious
felony there is and is punishable by death in many states.
Now it looks like
the Pro-life crowd is getting their way and the pro-choice crowd
will lose their right to abortion (or to kill their baby according
to the Pro-lifers). What does this mean?
What if the
Supreme Court rules that human life begins at conception? Well
first off the abortion clinics will close down. I am sure many
pro-lifers will welcome that. That will not be the end of abortions
though. The abortion pill RU-486 will likely be used as an
alternative to surgery and has already become commonplace.
investigations will begin. These would be murder investigations,
after all abortion = murder, right? Police and prosecutors all
around the country will have to start investigating these crimes.
This is not about determining if someone made a bad decision.
It would about murder.
Here is a
dilemma: Many of the pro-life people favor the death penalty. This
means that if a person is convicted of murder they will be executed by the
state, if that state has the death penalty. These cases are going
to be very costly, but that is OK because murderers deserve the death
Most states will
probably abolish the death penalty after the Supreme Court rules
that life begins at conception. There may be some that can reconcile
killing women that kill their unborn child, but the vast majority of
the people will not accept it, I think. The
maximum for murder will likely be life in prison without the
possibility of parole.
The only good thing that
will likely come from the banning of abortion will be an end to the
advocates donít believe murder should be done at all, let alone in
private. It is not a matter of a young persons mistake.
This does not play into a murder case unless the person is a minor.
The person that aborted the child will still be charged with killing
another human being. The next order of business is determining
the punishment for intentionally killing another human.
Roe vs Wade was
based on a technicality Ė the privacy issue. It does not make sense to be allowed to murder a baby in
private. So next time you see abortion protesters outside a womenís
clinic chanting and asking women to not kill their baby, think about
what they are really saying.
