First off, the new Texas abortion law requires doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, thus protecting the well being of the mother, pro- choice crowd doesn’t like this… second, the law allow abortions only in surgical centers, again protecting the mother, and pro-choice crowd doesn’t like that… Third, it limits where and when women may take abortion-inducing pills, again protecting the mother, guess what the pro- choice crowd doesn’t like it… Finally the law bans abortions after 20 weeks, thus protecting the fetus, and guess what the pro-choice crowd doesn’t like that either. I don’t see where this law infringes on a woman’s right, if anything it is protecting the woman’s health. My guess is, any law that doesn’t out right allow for full termination at any time, any where, by anybody is just unfair and anti woman’s rights. I applaud Texas for standing up and taking a stand, the law is not perfect, in my opinion it does not go far enough, but I respect the effort that it took and the steps it made in protecting the rights of the innocent fetus.
As far as the death penalty, like others have stated, if a criminal is proven guilty of a horrific crime, has exhausted all viable appeals, and is still found guilty, then that person deserves his fate. If the current laws were successfully enforced, we might see a decline in crime.
Both laws are designed to detour the killing of the innocent.
