    Default Georgia abortion bill including possible death penalty for doctor and mother

    Holy crap.

    http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2...lltext/hb1.htm

    Yes, you read that right, death penalty is on the table for any woman receiving an abortion, or doctor perfoming an abortion if this bill passes.


    edit: I just realized that the code is just referred to in the bill, here it is, in case you were wondering where i got death penalty from.

    O.C.G.A. § 16-5-1


    GEORGIA CODE
    Copyright 2006 by The State of Georgia
    All rights reserved.

    *** Current through the 2006 Regular Session ***

    TITLE 16. CRIMES AND OFFENSES
    CHAPTER 5. CRIMES AGAINST THE PERSON

    § 16-5-1. Murder; felony murder


    (a) A person commits the offense of murder when he unlawfully and with malice aforethought, either express or implied, causes the death of another human being.

    (b) Express malice is that deliberate intention unlawfully to take the life of another human being which is manifested by external circumstances capable of proof. Malice shall be implied where no considerable provocation appears and where all the circumstances of the killing show an abandoned and malignant heart.

    (c) A person also commits the offense of murder when, in the commission of a felony, he causes the death of another human being irrespective of malice.

    (d) A person convicted of the offense of murder shall be punished by death or by imprisonment for life.

    It's crude pandering by politicians. They should be ashamed of themselves, but the type of politician who introduces or votes for this type of bill has no shame.

    The above has nothing to do with the rights and wrongs of abortion. It's just a matter of fact - legislators who pander to extremists by introducing absurd legislation they know to be unconstitutional don't deserve to hold office.

    The Politcians know this has zero chance of winning its a ploy to show their supports they are on their side. Its just a means to gain votes or not lose them!

    The "we know life begins at conception" is still a matter of perception.

    Can morals and values be legislated?

    This question has been posed by me to plenty of people, including to college students in class lectures.
