    If abortion becomes illegal, will ex-providers be like Nuremburg Defendants?

    Years ago I went to a “pro life” meeting. I don’t recall the official name of the organization. By the way, I think that abortion should be allowed under certain circumstances. I was a visitor. I like to try to really understand the view points of other people.

    I talked one-on-one with one of the gust speakers – to try to understand his perspective of the issue of Abortion. I asked him what he wanted to see in America. He advocated outlawing abortion and prosecuting those who had provided for abortions even when it was legal for providers to have done so. I asked him how he reasoned that doing so was just. I asked him about the phrase “ex post facto”. He explained that he knew the legal principal and then asked me if I knew about the “Nuremburg trials”. He said that Nazis were punished after the war for executing Jews, a practice that was legal and the Nazis were following orders.

    He explained that some things are so evil and heinous to human psyche that the world, so to speak, is justified in punishing those who commit such atrocities even though it was legal to commit such wrongs when they were done.

    Any comments?

    perhaps..as long as the killing stopped I would leave the guilt and sentence or reprieve for these past acts of these doctors and patients for god to judge

    I wonder why he was only for prosecuting doctors, why not those seeking abortions as well. Wouldn't they be accessories to murder, in the very least?
    My opinion is that this guy is mentally ill whatever his reasoning is. Probably one step away from taking the law into his own hands and doing the "will of God".
    He has a right to express his opinions but I would hope people are keeping an eye on him.
    Doctors who continue to provide abortions in these scary times deserve some kind of medal, IMO. If humankind does succeed in surviving the threat over population poses for our species, I think they and those who choose not to add to the problem will be recognized as having made sacrifices and wise choices for the greater good of the planet and our species.

    Doesn't god judge everyone? If I was god, I would be very disappointed with those who invoked my name in defense of their very selfish and perverted will to turn women into breeding stock.

    That's what women are for to have children. It's their main purpose for being here. :cool:

    So ... I take it you would also allow all the murderers to go free since the Death Penalty is pretty much the same thing?

    For what?

    The #1 job of a woman is to have children. Everything else is secondary :eusa_angel:
