If you believe in God.
Kevin D. Williamson, briefly at the Atlantic Magazine, prompted my musings on the topic. I am a woman. As a sexually active woman I have had several abortions. OK, not surgical abortions, but spontaneous abortions, miscarriages, abortion by God -- if there is a God.
Kevin D. Williamson believes that those who have abortions and those who provide abortions should be hanged:
In 2014, Williamson tweeted that “the law should treat abortion like any other homicide.” Although Williamson has since deleted his Twitter account, the exchange was immortalized by Rewire.News Editor-in-Chief Jodi Jacobson, who explained that Williamson not only advocated for abortion to “be treated as premeditated homicide,” but also that “women who have had abortions should face capital punishment, namely hanging.”
Should I, a woman who has experienced spontaneous abortion, also be hanged?
I think not and I am offended by Williamson's tone and language.
Furthermore, what offends me most is Williamson's gross stupidity about basic human biology, most pregnancies do not make it to term, hand of God, if you will. I refer the reader to the stats at:
Williamson's stupidity about basic science is astounding and makes him unworthy.
