    What should the criminal penalty be for an abortion?

    EDIT- OBVIOUSLY this is a question for the anti-women's choice crowd.

    You could consider abortion as a hate crime. There are varying penalties.

    Well, if I believed the fetus was a child, who just happens to be living inside a womb as opposed to outside the womb,

    I'd say the penalty should be the same as it is for killing anyone.

    Same as it is for an unwanted fetus.

    Funny how the right is keen to call abortion murder yet I've yet to hear any of you loons suggest it should be banned and the penalty for violating the ban should be 1st degree pre-meditated murder.


    Hypocrites.

    I don't think there are many on the right who are actually serious about outlawing abortion. If they did, they would lose a wedge issue and rallying point for the religious right part of the Republican base. If they were serious about it, they could have gotten rid of it when they controlled all three branches of government during the Bush administration.

    Whatever the going rate is these days for murder or accessory-to-murder.

    Justice must be served. Human rights must be upheld.

    I am pro-choice on matters that don't deprive another human being of its rights. Abortion deprives another human being of its right-to-life. Using the tired bumper-sticker cliche of "anti-women's choice" is intellectually and morally dishonest.

    I personally think there should be a limit to the Number of Abortions for no other reason than they don't want the kid, that a woman should have.

    Guess that makes me a Nazi eh.
