someone in a fit of rage, we shouldn't have laws against murder either because "we can't stop them."
Having a law against something isn't about stopping a behaviour.
It's about justice for those who are injured. It's about securing the rights of the injured, or in the case of murder, securing the rights of those still alive from further harm by this same person.
Stopping the activity entirely isn't the point.
No, a woman who has an abortion and the doctor who performs it should not be executed in my opinion, because I don't favor the death penalty. (I'm 100% pro-life)
But they should be prosecuted and imprisoned for their crime.
They took the life of an innocent human being, at it's most vulnerable and innocent stage. There's little else more sick than that. (some, but not much)
