If you overturn Roe, how do you plan to enforce an abortion ban?

    Since we are all talking stuff (as VP Biden would say) about Abortion, here's the question I'd like to hear the people who scream "baby killer" answer.

    If you got Roe v. Wade overturned, and got a lot of states to ban abortion, however are you going to enforce this law?

    Are you going to throw the women who have them in prison? give them the death penalty?

    One idiot yesterday actually suggested forcible sterilization.

    But this is your chance, social engineers. Tell me how your ideal society with no abortion is going to work.

    I'd just give it back to the states. No ban.

    Simple really, Matt.

    Basically they want to go back to the time when wealthy girls in trouble disappeared for a brief visit to their "aunt", while poor girls spawned unwanted children, or they put their lives into the hands of unlicenced abortionists.

    So all These good ol boys want to return to those golden days of yore, understand?

    when you take away women's right to control over their own body, you take away their economic and personal independence, as well.

    and that is ultimately why 80% of anti-choice activists are men.

    Basically, you are right. Deal with it. You get into a mess, then deal with it. Don't get everyone involved with your mess.

    that's a lie... and if something is constitutional, it has to be constitutional for all 50 states.

    the BS that it is a "state" issue is only to deny women access...

    unless, of course, they're wealthy.

    how about you stay out of other people's liives?

    thanks.

    and, more importantly, do you really think government should be enforcing your warped morality?

    What morality? I am offering none and don't want someone else's personal business get into mine. I want to stay out of other people's lives but they keep on making their silly lives mine.

    you're offering none?

    that's a lie...

    what you're offering is "punish the harlots".

    my suggestion to you is you govern your own actions and life and stay out of others... and, again, don't ask government to enforce *your* choice.

    and how does someone having an abortion make their "silly" life yours?

    be specific... and at all times justify the governmental intrusion.

    Correct, fundamental Equal Protection doctrine; one doesn’t lose his right to privacy as a consequence of his state of residence.

    To the OP, you’ll likely not get an honest response from the ‘baby killing’ demagogues. As correctly noted in other threads, the last thing they want is abortion banned, as they would lose an important wedge issue used to keep The Base engaged.
