All wire hangers will be banned!
We will call it the Joan Crawford amendment.
Maybe more partisan stuff about tax returns or college transcripts?>>>>>>>>>>>>>
That would help........;)
I think the reason no one will respond though is that they know you're right but don't want to admit it.If that law was passed, Republicans would then have to create a new government agency go after abortionists or hire more agents in existing law enforcement agencies. So now the party of "small government" just made government bigger. And yes, like drugs or any other illegal endeavor, it's very legal status will create crime where there wasn't any previously.
"Maybe I should have thrown in some personal attacks? Maybe more partisan stuff about tax returns or college transcripts? "
It can't be enforced without massive government involvement--or with the help of "concerned citizens" (rats, snitches, etc--people that turn in women they suspect of having had an abortion).
Which is why I think that such a law or amendment would be in the books more as a "feel good" law, just to make the pro-life stance official. If they can catch a few women or doctors here and there, they'd be happy.
Also, it's worth pointing out that the rest of the amendments (except the boring 27th amendment) are about having government "back off" from the citizens, granting them more freedom. This amendment would actually be a step in the other direction, adding restrictions on our freedoms (as would any marriage amendment).
Exactly. This creates bigger and bigger government, something conservatives should be repulsed by.
They love big government when it "does good".
Abortion is a tragedy in my opinion, but government isn't effective at regulating it or preventing it. Other avenues must be explored instead of government.
