Das ist hübsch: Da haben Leute auf einer Anti-Abtreibungs-Demo die Abtreibungsgegner gefragt, wie Frauen, die illegal abtreiben, bestraft werden sollten. Schließlich ist Abtreibung doch Mord, oder?
Just ask them this:
If abortion was illegal, what should be done with the women who have illegal abortions?
Now watch their faces as the cognitive dissonance sets in. They believe abortion to be murder. Murder deserves severe punishment. Thus, women who have illegal abortions should receive severe punishment — like life in prison or the death penalty. That’s the logical conclusion.
Leider alles in Englisch und mit beschissenem Ton, aber trotzdem sehenswert. Ein schönes Beispiel (zitiert nach unreasonablefaith.com, weil ich zu faul bin, es selber zu transkribieren):
Q: Abortion should be illegal, did you say?
A: Yes, it should be illegal because it’s killing a human person.
Q: And what should happen to women who have illegal abortions?
A: … Just pray for them. I don’t think they should have to spend time in jail or anything.
Q: So if it’s illegal, you think there should be no punishment under the law?
A: No, I don’t think they should be punished, because the life has been taken. The crime has been done.
Q: [But isn’t] that’s true with murder, too? Isn’t there a punishment for murder?
A: Yes, there’s a punishment for murder because that’s taking a life.
Q: So why shouldn’t there be a punishment for a woman who has an illegal abortion?
A: Oh… as the other [person] said, it’s kind of between her and God. She will get her punishment in the end.
Q: So why should it be illegal?
A: Because it’s the taking of a life.
