Should Abortion be Illegal? Then what . . .

For those of you haven't yet watched this video of a Libertyville Abortion clinic protest, do so! It illustrates for me something really dangerous in the pro-life movement, especially when they agitate to restrict or ban abortions through laws.

Pro-choice positions encompass and embrace moral views that find abortion abhorent. If you believe that abortion is immoral, and there are plenty of good arguments, then no pro-choice advocate will try to limit or restrict that decision. Pro-lifers, however, want to limit your decisions and it appears that many haven't even thought through what the legal consequences of that will be!
