If abortion was illegal- should a pregnant woman be punished legally for having an abortion?
Of course not. But how could ahe have a legal abortion if its illegal? Did you have a typo?
It would an illegal abortion
It depends on how the law is written. If the law specifies punishment for the "crime", then yes.
I wouldn't sign that law. However, I would suggest a law saying that the provider should be punished.
The key word here is should. I believe in the ultimate right of the individual to their property and person. Therefore, if placed on a jury for a case in which a woman was placed at jeopardy of life, limb or property for an abortion, I would act nullify the unjust law.
Law is law
Surprised how many people think that someone shouldn't face consequences for breaking laws
In true keeping with pro life values the woman should be charged with 1st degree murder and the doctor as well. They both planned and participated in pre meditated murder. If pro lifers want abortion and they call the fetus a human they must take this finding along with their deal! So get out your protests and advocate for the babies, jailing the mothers and doctors for life....I dare you.
