Framing abortion (video)
A video asks abortion protesters what should happen, should they acheive their goal, to women who have an illegal abortion. "Almost every one of them said something like 'I haven't really thought about that'... More amazing, to me at least," writes dadahead, "was that even these hard-core anti-abortion folks, who unhesitatingly labeled abortion 'murder', couldn't bring themselves to say that women who have abortions should be treated like murderers are - i.e., sentenced to lengthy prison terms. They hadn't thought through the consequences of their own position, and when confronted with them, they intuitively backed away from them."
"Watching the video makes me wonder if we wouldn't be better off by characterizing the opposition not as 'anti-abortion' or even 'anti-choice' (certainly not 'pro-life') but rather as pro-criminalization." (Liberal Avenger)
