VIDEO: Will more women die from back-alley abortions if they can’t get them legally?
The latest video in Live Action’s “Pro-Life Replies” series was released today in response to the claim that “if abortion is made illegal, women will have dangerous back alley abortions.” The argument from many abortion advocates is that society will never get rid of abortion entirely, and if it’s illegal it will be unsafe — and therefore, they say, we need to keep abortion legal. This argument is severely lacking for several reasons, one of which is the fact that making anything illegal rarely stops that action altogether. Murder and theft are illegal, but homicides and burglaries still happen — and that’s because protecting life and protecting citizens’ private property are two important roles of government.
As for multiple other reasons why this argument is deficient, we turn to former abortionist and one-time Planned Parenthood medical director Dr. Kathi Aultman, who explains in the video below. Click here for more.
