I know the old saying...if ifs and buts were candy and nuts we would all have a great Christmas. But...
If abortion is somehow restricted to rape and incest cases only would that mean that the victim would have to file a report and the perpetrator
convicted in order for the abortion to be granted?
This discussion is not about whether or not you are pro choice or pro life, but rather, the ramifications of restrictiing the availability and if
there will have to be "proof", and what degree of proof.
Could this also lead to harsher punishments for sexual crimes such as rape and incest?
Would it lead to more or less reporting since it would force the victim to face the criminal again?
Would it just make criminals just more conscious of the evidence they leave behind? Would they wear condoms?
Would there be more rape victims that end up murdered as well, to insure no wittness?
Would abortion options be black market, especially for victims if forced to have the child of their rapist, if they are are never caught?
Again this isn't about abortion directly, but more about ideas about what this would mean for the victims the rapest, and society in general.
