    proposed solution for Abortion

    when you abort whatever was the age of embryo/fetus at the time is how much you spend in prison for it

    abort it at 2 weeks ? - get 2 weeks in prison.

    abort it at 2 months ? - get 2 months in prison.

    both parents serve the time.

    if the girl is under age the man serves both his and her time.

    anything past 6 months is murder.

    age of consent is reduced to age of puberty.

    would you support this scheme ?

    It isn't even possible. Exactly how would figure out the time at which the women aborted? Its not like back-alley doctors are going to be preserving the evidence for you.

    Then it's only favor that the back-alley doctors will serve a full 9 months, plus serve the mother's 9 month sentence in her place.

    Re: proposed solution for Abortion

    Either abortion is the unwarranted killing of a person-- the mainstream pro-life position-- in which case the penalties are grossly insufficient, or it is not, in which case another justification for the criminal penalties must be found. If abortion is criminalized for reasons other than the killing of an unborn person, then the gestational age of the fetus is largely irrelevant to the sentencing.

    And if the age of consent was the onset of puberty, there would be no pregnant underaged girls for men to serve the sentences for.

    This "solution" is nonsensical and utterly unworkable.

    It's ridiculous, unworkable and unenforceable, not to mention a violation of the law. Why would you come up with something this idiotic?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Why in the Hell would you want to do that? Whatever your opinion of women who have abortions when they are younger, most of them go on and grow up to raise families and are reasonably responsible mothers. This is a very foolish position to adopt out of sheer spite.

    Re: proposed solution for Abortion

    This is a ridiculous system. I have more respect for the idea of banning abortion completely.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    stop thinking like a NeoCon. is the word better without Saddam Hussein - yes or no ? not everything is a black and white question.

    is killing a mouse a crime ? how about killing a cat ? why is one crime and one not a crime ?

    a fetus is not a person. on the other hand a fetus is clearly alive. i would say that killing a fetus is a crime similar to killing a cat.

    there is no single moment in which something magical happens and life begins. life haven't fully begun even by the time you are born. you are not 100% person probably up until age 3 or so ( depending on individual ).

    life may not end in a single moment either. if you have alzheimers your life may end as gradually as it began.

    be more flexible in your logic.
