Idaho fundamentalists attempt to get abortion declared First Degree Murder

http://www.cdapress.com/article/20161230/ARTICLE/161239995

"What we're asking Idaho to do is make abortion illegal by its statute and disregard the federal court's opinion (in Roe v. Wade in 1973 that established a nationwide right to abortion)," said Scott Herndon, a homebuilder from Sagle who said he's among about 25 people who organized the proposal.

...

"In circulating the petition, we get to declare that the value of human life is from conception to natural death and it is because we are created by an almighty and loving God who made us in His own image," Herndon wrote in a letter to churches. "It is also our hope that we truly do abolish abortion here in Idaho and finally establish justice for the preborn.

"If a woman faces the very real consequences of a first-degree murder penalty, we are confident it will act as a deterrent to abortion."


I know these people, and when they want abortion banned, they want it banned in ALL circumstances. Pregnant woman gets in a car crash and won't survive unless the fetus is removed? Sorry dude, if that happens the doctor, all the attending medical staff, and the woman will all be tried for first-degree murder.

1. That is just beyond the pale completely!

They are certifiably nuts.

I don't think they will get anywhere.

And of course, they want it banned in all circumstances.......until it happens to them.

5. Because 25 jackssses want to make abrrortion illegal

Now Idaho isn't first on my list of places to visit but 25 assholes' opinion won't make me less likely to visit. I'm sure there are more kooks than that where I live (Ventura County). Now, if it makes it on the ballot, then I totally agree with you...

3. Maybe they should teach their kids about sex and birth control...

... nah, that would be too easy.

Their sick religion doesn't work without virgins to prey upon and women to shame.

4. Hypocritical Nonsense

Once someone is born they have much less regard for lots of lives. Most are down with the Death Penalty as well.

7. I figure it'll be like Romania's Decree 770

Every woman will have to report for monthly pregnancy testing (at their own expense, of course) and if she ever shows up pregnant it'll be either Live Birth or Death Row.

I'm going to also assume sterilization will be illegal because Jesus.
