A matter of life and death?
The debate surrounding abortion often comes down to whether or not people think it should be legal. But what happens when we continue the discussion beyond that point? Check out this video documenting abortion protesters responding to this question:
If abortion was illegal, what should be done with the women who have illegal abortions?
What do you think of this video? It seems to me that the fact that most of the protesters (women, interestingly enough) do not believe that a woman who has an illegal abortion (if it was made illegal) should be punished suggests that they do not actually believe abortion is murder (a thought that is expanded upon on here).
So what does that mean for the abortion debate? If you are someone who believes abortion should be made illegal, what do you think should happen to women who have abortions? Do you think that a question like this is valuable when discussing these issues, or do you think it's beside the point?
There is a lot to think about, that's for sure. So share your thoughts with us!
