Jean Swenson told lawmakers during Monday’s Iowa Senate subcommittee on the Life Amendment that there have been abortions “since the beginning of time.”
And that no legislation will stop abortion.
Similar comments to that of Frieda. But can I just ask what legislation has stopped any behavior that is illegal?
Murder is outlawed — still happens. Stealing is outlawed — still happens. Drug use is outlawed — still happens.
The list goes on.
Just because something will continue to happen if it is illegal doesn’t mean it should remain legal.
That makes no logical sense.
Anyway, Swenson called maintaining legal abortion a “justice issue.” She then said it is one more example of privileged people controlling the lives of others.
It is a justice issue. And it is an example of “privileged people” controlling the lives of others. It’s an example of “privileged people” choosing to end the lives of others.
Swenson said it is “the most egregious attack on our rights.”
