How much jail time?

The answer is an obvious one:

Anna Quindlen’s column in Newsweek this week is titled “How much jail time?” and argues that pro-lifers are dodging the issue of jail time for women who seek abortions. She concludes: “there are only two logical choices: hold women accountable for a criminal act by sending them to prison, or refuse to criminalize the act in the first place. If you can’t countenance the first, you have to accept the second. You can’t have it both ways.”

An ideal judicial punishment for a woman who has an abortion is to jail her until she hits menopause. That kills two birds with one stone, creating a significant disincentive for killing unborn children as well as helping Natural Selection breed the maternal baby-killers out of existence.

But that’s in an ideal world. In this one, I’d settle for a fine in lieu of jailtime in return for testimony against the abortionist.

I have no sympathy for abortionettes whatsoever. They are more disgusting than the SS-Totenkopfverbände, whose victims at least had the opportunity to defend themselves. And yet, it must be admitted that like most of the historical death camp guards, they are only accomplices, the chief guilty party is the one that actually does the killing and profits from it.
