That's stupid. They can always cross the border into Canada or Mexico.

Anyway,I would suggest the authorities stiffen the fines for not paying child support.
Maybe then men will learn to keep it in their pants,or get a blow up doll.

That won't provide any incentive for thinking twice about getting an abortion, while certainly encouraging the rise of secretive underground abortion services that never are inspected.

My reason for posting this thread though is that pro-lifers seem to be rejoicing at the increased number of bills tightening restrictions on abortion, making it less safe and accessible, all the while not understanding that at some point these changes will have far reaching consequences such as women seeking out unsafe back-street abortions, or having to face penalties.

All the usual rabid pro-lifers have yet to post.....curious.

Notice how they claim that abortion is "murder," and not just "murder," but "murder" of the most innocent forms of human life, yet I have not seen a one of them yet call for the most severe punishments for the individual who makes the decision to "murder" and then contracts someone to perform the murder.

Why is this?

a. They don't really believe that fetus is a "baby."
b. They know that sentencing women to life in prison or executing them for these "murders" would turn people on the fence off.

Exactly. And most importantly, it would call for a major invasion of privacy to delve into the doctor-patient relationship. I just don't believe that this issue would be handled the same way by majority male politicians if they had to reveal details of each and every doctors visit, and have intrusive procedures against their will.

Plenty of prolifers support the death penalty, prison time or some kind of torture for women who get abortions.

They don't care about women who die from illegal abortions or they will say that she deserved it for trying to murder her baby and escape the consequences.

There are going to be a LOT of celibate men in your little world. (Where civil and human rights don't exist.)

Nothing because obviously those poor men were seduced by those evil Jezebels and shouldn't be held accountable for their actions. I am being sarcastic obviously.

I'd guess about what conviction for illegal drunks means probably not much in real terms. It was once illegal and those prosecuted where those performing them that I am aware of.in these days of ignoring law I doubt it would do much good like marijuana federal laws and harboring illegal aliens. One can pretty much do whatever turns one on in the right palace regardless of many laws. We have politician who even say I don't agree so I am going to ignore the law and direct people under me to do so too. Heck if I want to spy o people then that is what we will do regardless of search laws established by supreme court.
