To: Recovering Ex-hippie
I agree that the “mothers” who choose killing their children are just as guilty of murder than the people they hire, and “fathers” who allow it, often encourage it and pay for it are accessories to murder.
I also agree that unpleasant as it is, the pro-life community should not shy away from making that point.
Now, leaving the moral perspective aside and taking up the legal and political perspective, it is clear why the focus is on the abortionists: they have a profit motive and are easy to shut down, whereas the “mothers” often come from a very difficult circumstance and deserve compassion.

Good post. thanks for your articulate reply.

The reason doctors should hang for abortion, is because most mothers do not, in fact, want abortion. They are in an anxiety laden dilemma that might infringe on their future (college), their health (they may be quite ill with no one to help them), their lack of financial wealth (we need places where women can go for their pregnancies -- paid for by the government -- up until they deliver if necessary), they may be threatened (hubbies/boyfriends say get the abortion, or I'll leave), they may not even know the father (sad situation for a sexually promiscuous woman; she needs help).
Abortion is offered as a quicky way to eliminate their "problem," and they jump at the chance to just get it over with, when in fact that nine month period is absolutely NOTHING, I repeat, *nothing*, compared to a lifetime of regret. Been there, done that
. If you know anyone considering abortion, try your hardest to stop them. If one has already ended a life through abortion, they can be forgiven. In fact, it's imperative that they eventually seek that out and move on to help others.
