Tweety really did a good job backing Marjorie Dannenfelser of the deceptively-named Susan B. Anthony List (it's an anti-abortion group) into a corner with the same question I always use with them: Do you want to see women go to jail? Your mother, sister, daughter, cousin, friend?

If they're going to push for these fetal personhood laws, then by God, they should be ready to talk about the inevitable legal consequences. Are they really so illogical that they never bothered to think about the outcomes? It may indeed not be their intent, but women will indeed go to jail. If that's what they want, they should say so.

And if it isn't what they want, well, it's time to rethink their position.

Can you help us out?
