Should women who have an abortion go to jail? "I never really thought about that." I've been saying this all along: Once abortion opponents understand that you can't have a different legal standard for women who have abortions, they will lose their taste for making it a crime.

Because while they do enjoy climbing on that moral high horse, most of them don't have the stomach for sending their sisters, daughters and neighbors to prison for murder.

I do find it fascinating that none of these long-time anti-abortion activists ever even thought about the legal consequences about their entire "abortion is murder" crusade. I think it shows an interesting opening for this ongoing debate.
