Making Abortion Illegal Will Reduce the Number of Abortions

Imagine a politician making the following statement:

“Personally, I believe slavery is wrong. However, I disagree with the suggestion that criminalizing slave owners and slave traders is an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the number of slaves in our nation.”

This would be a ludicrous statement. But Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius made a similar comment.

She said, “Personally I believe abortion is wrong, however, I disagree with the suggestion that criminalizing women and their doctors is an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the number of abortions in our nation.”

This modified pro-choice position is foolish, especially for the governor. She says her Catholic faith “Teaches me that all life is sacred.” If abortion kills sacred human life, then shouldn’t she want to make killing sacred human life illegal? After all, society usually outlaws methods of killing innocent human beings – abortion should be no exception.
