Interesting idea—infants as parasites. What’s next, a Modest Proposal to eat them?
Another interesting idea—a majority of voters get to empower mother’s to kill viable life, if it suits them. Or, in opposition, voters get to force mothers to carry viable life to term. Perhaps, we just remain silent on moral issues.
If you are going to force a woman to carry to term, then how about this proposal...
1. The womans healthcare is 100% covered completely and in full for the entirety of the pregnancy and for any duration of prolonged issue afterward (complications, depression etc) by the state. No skimping allowed, the best healthcare available and at least whatever the best that is supplied to politicians
2. The childs healthcare and welfare is 100% covered for life by the state, as above - the state forced them into existence, the state gets to take 100% care of them
3. If the woman does not want to keep the child after birth, a current Republican Party politician in a public state office must adopt the child and all healthcare and welfare costs then transfer to that politician
4. Men cannot have sexual intercourse or engage in sexual activity without explicit permission from the state for each and every instance - there are no exclusions
How about that?
Or, how about we allow the woman the choice as to whether they want to carry to term and honour that choice as theirs? There are already limits on what is and is not a "viable life", past which a termination can only be carried out, so there are already safeguards in place.
