Quiz Time

The recent abortion discussion in the United States has sparked emotions on both sides of the debate. The following are a list of questions designed to probe your beliefs:

1) Should women who abort get life sentences in prison and/or the death penalty?
2) If a woman's husband knows she is aborting, should he be charged as an accessory to murder?
3) How about her friends who know?
4) Should abortion doctors receive life sentences in prison and/or the death penalty?
5) If a woman has a serious medical condition that would almost always lead to the death of a fetus, but gets pregnant anyway, should she be criminally liable if the fetus dies?
6) If her husband knew of this condition, should he, too, be criminally liable?
7) If a company manufactures a product which lights a fire in a fertility clinic, destroying 1500 frozen embryos, should they be liable for mass murder?
8) If an electric company has a power failure which cuts power to a fertility clinic, thawing embryos and rendering them unusable, should they be liable for mass murder?
9) If a pregnant woman reports to her doctor that she is smoking during her pregnancy, should her doctor be mandated to report it to the appropriate agency for dealing with child abuse?
10) If a woman has cancer and her chemotherapy kills a fetus, should she be given a life sentence and/or sentenced to die?
11) If her doctor was aware of her pregnancy, should he be charged as an accessory to murder?12) Should a person with 15 frozen embryos in storage be required to carry each embryo as soon as possible?
13) If I had 15 embryos in storage, should I be able to claim them as dependents on my tax paperwork?

If you answered "no" to ANY ONE of these questions, you may hate abortion with all your heart, but you do NOT believe a fetus has the same legal rights as a person from the moment of conception. You may think abortion is disgusting and morally abhorrent, but unless you answered an emphatic "yes" to all of the above, you do not believe that fetuses are actually human beings with human rights.

Good thread!

The quiz polarizes abortion (neither a good or a bad thing) by bringing some of the most salient points of the debate out. I'm fairly sure the "true believer" pro-lifers won't like that. Anyone up for a visit to South Dakota to find out?
Excellent posting!
