Ask a Simple Question of Religious Anti-Choice demonstrators

*He asks anti-choice protesters if abortion should be legal or illegal.

*The protesters state they believe abortion should be illegal.

*The protesters are then asked, "What should happen to a woman who has an illegal abortion?"

Amazing isn't it?

Do you see how the logic is missing from faith-brains?

The idea of "sanctioning" is different than "criminalizing".

Maybe this is why the USA imprisons more people per capita than any other nation.

Personally, I don’t agree with most of the reasons people have abortions. Although I am no fan of the practice, I understand the issue is no one’s business but he woman’s and potentially the fathers. I would like to see the law dropped to a 1st trimester limitation.

America is not the only country struggiling with this issue - Take a look at abortions laws in other countries for comparison.

There is a great piece in Reason magazine on this issue that is worth a read.
