The news is out: [A Texas Republican has said women who have abortions should “absolutely” be punished and deserve to go to prison for having their pregnancy terminated.
Representative Ron Wright, who was elected in 2018, responds to questions about whether or not women who induce their own abortions should be punished with jail in a video released by abortion access advocacy group Reproaction.
The politician says: “Of course, because they just killed a baby”.
When the interviewer asks if he is concerned women could be sent to prison for having abortions, he says: “As far as I’m concerned, they committed murder”.]
My stand on abortion is very clear: I would make a decision only if I am involved in the conception. I have no business pretending that I have the moral obligation to force my opinion on people I don’t even know. My freedom stops where someone else’s begins. The ability of a woman to have control of her body is critical to civil rights.
This is another attempt at imposing Christian Sharia law; something I have been warning about for years. And I call Christians idiots because they support any stupid idea from men who have never, ever been pregnant.
