    Lady Viola you did put this under humour but there is nothing really funny about it. I appreciate you have an opinion about abortion but anti abortion has little to do with keeping females under control. That concept is simply in the minds of those that are finding some excuse to promote the idea that abortion is acceptable. It is a very weak woman that stoops to these levels or whining to uphold their views. There are much better, even more logical reasons that give abortion some credible reason to examine the issue but that is not one of them.

    Isn't the biblical example that you quote in regards to where a man accidentaley causes an abortion? Even still, although he may not have been put to death there was a punishment involved.

    The cartoon is wrong, verse 22 indded says that a fine should be levied if the woman gives birth prematurely but the baby survives. However it continues that if there is serious injury and makes no distinction between mother and baby, then the perpetrator should be executed. It makes the point eye foy eye, tooth for tooth, life for life.

    If people are fighting and hit a pregnant woman and she gives birth prematurely but there is no serious injury, the offender must be fined whatever the woman’s husband demands and the court allows. But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise. - Exodus 21:22-25

    Note to self:

    Never attempt a rational conversation with Lady Viola, if this is any indication of her rationale.

    And one might want to avoid getting logical arguments from illogical propaganda sources.
