Mark Stewart on Abortion

 

 


Roe v Wade was a bad decision, legally & morally

Q: Do you support or oppose the statement, "Abortion is a woman's unrestricted right"?

A: Abortion is not an unrestricted right.˙ Legally, it deserves to be restricted by states or even locales.˙ That's why Roe v Wade was a bad decision: it took criminal punishment power away from states.˙ (Also the Roe court was legislating, i.e. making law, when a court's job is to apply law).˙ When states/locales can choose, some states will deem abortion a felony; some will deem a later term abortion "murder"; some will deem it a misdemeanor; some, sadly, will put no legal penalty on "mother" or abortionist.

Q: What about moral issues, beyond the legal issues?

A: Morally, it deserves to be censured by all.˙ Abortion is at minimum a selfish act.˙ A woman can do a beautiful thing by carrying a baby for an infertile couple.˙ They will pay for her health care and more.˙In many cases it's a lot more
