The Government Must Do Something

A commenter at Classical Values said:

I believe the government must do something about abortion. That does not mean I believe the government must do everything about abortion.
Ah yes. The government must do something. The start of all mischief. The rallying cry of socialists and social conservatives. Wasn't that the idea behind Alcohol Prohibition? Some people never learn.

What is line at which the effort should stop? And suppose the effort fails? (It will. Government is in charge.) Won't more efforts be required?

What should be done about a RU-486 black market? Another black market for the drug dealers.

How about menstrual extraction parties? Just do a search. The instructions are not hard to find. Kits are described.

Wouldn't it be easier just to convince women not to do it? Rather than adding another set of enforcers to the government. Wouldn't that offer a better protection of your liberties?

These people think so.

it's a very simple line Simon -- stop mandating a Federal private right to abortion without it having been voted on or a damn word about it in the Constitution. Let us work it out at State level. funny, you libertarians get it on drugs but not on the right to kill your unborn child or not
