The South Dakota senate would passed a bill banning abortion in all instances except to save the life of a pregnant woman. The law, which is expected to pass the House and be signed by the governor, would declare that life begins at conception.
A Dutch politician has called for forced abortions on mothers that the government would deem as unfit. She said mothers from certain groups (teenage mothers, drug addicts and people with mental handicaps) constitute an “unacceptable risk” of having “unloved” children.
Now we can safely say these are the two extremes of the abortion debate. Which extreme would you want to live under – one that protects even possible life to a fault or one where the government determines who is fit to have children and then aborts any it sees as unfit?
