I have written this several times in the past that the logical outcome of laws prohibition all abortions are women going to prison. Several have argued here that, no, that would never happen.
I have pointed out there are places in the U. S. where local law enforcement has, in fact, arrested women for having abortions. And, why not? If the fertilized egg is a human being how could the woman not be included in the murder charges that result?
Both in the U. S. and Europe, there is a faction of the anti abortion zealots who seek prison for women who get abortions. The latest is in Poland. A bill has been introduced that would imprison for five years a woman who has had an abortion. The bill has not yet passed, but the point is there are those who want it. Included in those who support this bill is the Catholic Church.
That the Catholic Church of Poland support imprisoning women and the Vatican does not object tells us volumes. It tells us the logic of imprisoning women flows seamlessly from the religious view that a fertilized egg is a human being. They go together like a hand in a glove.
The only remaining question remaining is why do so many Catholic and Protestant right to lifers claim women who get abortions will not face imprisonment? The answer I am certain is they know prison sentences await these women, but to get anti abortion laws to pass, it must not be discussed.
