It's fun to mess with pro-forced pregnancy people

Just look!
I decided to go up to the young female students who were passing out their "genocide leaflets" to the students walking by and chat.

I asked each one if they wanted to overturn Roe vs. Wade and make abortion illegal. They all said yes, of course. I asked them if abortion was murder. They all said yes, of course.

I then asked each of them, once this is made illegal, what the preferred prison sentence should be for a woman that has an abortion.


Another girl seemed a bit taken aback, but then went into the "well, it's not the women who should be punished, it's the doctor who performs it" line.

"So wait a second, if someone hires a hitman to kill someone, they're charged for murder, right? Then why wouldn't the woman who hires the person to perform the abortion guilty of murder".

Silence. "Well... maybe. I don't know."

"Well, you're out here calling people murderers and accusing them of genocide. What do you mean you don't know?"


Of course, as commenters at LG&M note, this isn't likely to change anyone's minds. They'll just fall back to the idea that "They shouldn't be punished for hiring someone to murder their babies, because women are too stupid to make their own decisions and are therefore blameless."
