“making abortion a crime does nothing to stop it from happening”
First, that’s a complete fabrication. What you mean to say is that making abortion illegal WITHOUT ENFORCING THE LAW does nothing to stop it from happening.
I am not delusional nor naive. I fully understand that some mothers will continue to attempt to kill their children when abortion is outlawed. People continue to rape and murder even though these inhumane acts are outlawed. But imagine a world where rape was illegal but the law was NOT ENFORCED. Imagine if you could be raped and NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT IT.
I can assure you that if a mother and her child’s abortionist were actively investigated and arrested for murder – murder no less punishable than if they had conspired to kill a toddler – abortion would come to a screeching halt.
It is my goal to not only outlaw abortion, but to shift our culture from one that selfishly seeks the slaughter of its own unborn children to one that embraces the beauty and dignity of all human life from the moment of conception. It is my goal to not only make abortion illegal, but to make it UNTHINKABLE.

Most people’s morals are mostly in accordance with the law. They simply think that if it’s legal it’s right, and vice versa. The difficulty is that the law doesn’t necessarily have to be of one’s own country; when considering abortion, people living in countries with stricter abortion laws simply look to those with more relaxed law and therefore a kind of mimetic desire is produced, making it more likely for women in first countries to pursue illegal abortion. Rape and murder are not legal anywhere, and so it must be with abortion if it is ever to be abolished. Abortion must become recognized as a form of murder, nothing less.
