Rape is the only crime where the greatest penalty is imposed on one of the victims. At most the rapist gets prison time and the unborn gets the death penalty.
It makes Sharia law seem almost sane in comparison.
Texas has laws making it a crime to drive fast to get your child with a severed artery to the hospital. Oh the huge manatee.
Tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion, or compelling or coercing another to obtain an abortion, of a fetus that is the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime.If the woman chose to have an abortion, it would clearly not be to "destroy evidence of the crime".
And "facilitating an abortion" isn't what the woman does, she HAS the abortion. You could argue that the woman "procures" her own abortion, but that term generally refers to another person involved in the action.
The problem is that, outside the evil of abortion itself, there is a clear WAR ON WOMEN -- the perpetrators of sexual assault, and also men who engage in consensual sex with adult women, then use their power over the women, and maybe the threat, or the use, of physical or mental trauma, to force the women to get abortions that the women do not want.
But the liberals love killing babies so much that they will refuse to consider any laws that would help women who are being forced against their will to kill their own children.
This even though the same liberal groups will publicly declare that women are easily coerced, and need special protection, when it comes to relationships -- for example, laws on the books which protect "battered women", which means women who are abused by men, but who don't come forward, or even defend their men, because they are by nature unable to stand up to the male of the species.
So on the one hand, we make special laws that take into account the way men can force women to do things they don't want to do, but on the other hand, we completely deny the possibility that a man might force a woman to have an abortion.
If abortion was illegal, or course, it would be a powerful aid to prevent women from being forced into one.
I wish people would learn to read. The bill does not forbid abortion in cases of rape. It forbids aborting the fetus and destroying it when doing so means destroying evidence of the rape. As in not whether in happened but as in securing DNA to prove who the rapist is.
If abortion takes a human life, then it is murder and should be treated as such. The tragedy of rape doesn’t make it okay. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Why can’t people be nice?
