...When an unwanted fetus reaches the 75th trimester, we send it to Iraq. This can go into effect retroactively. I’m sure there are plenty of unwanted fetuses out walking around that, had their mothers been better informed, would have been aborted. Some of these fetuses might even predate Roe v. Wade. I even expect we’ll have enough fetuses to cover the coming crises in Iran and North Korea.
The solution is that at any point in the fetus’ development, the mother tells the federal government she wants an abortion, and the government appropriates the fetus to the branch of the armed services the reluctant parent chooses. Then, mission accomplished or not, if the fetus survives to term, it will be aborted following its tour of duty. This works well strategically, because the fetus will fight like it has nothing to lose. We won’t have to worry about post-traumatic stress, or even veterans’ affairs because there will be no veterans. Some may call this inhumane, but I’ve heard that the terrorists are dispatching suicide bombers which may not have even reached their 59th trimesters. I know America has higher moral standards than that.
