In a free republic, one of

In a free republic, one of the few legitimate roles of government is to defend rights. Does a child have rights?

Legislation doesn't prevent crimes, but it gives the victim the ability to receive some sort of redress for loss of life, liberty, or property. That is how the rule of law works. Legislation doesn't prevent the crime of murder but it makes murder illegal which allows for prosecution for this crime.

Most of us here do not support the idea of a "victimless crime". In an abortion there is a victim therefore, according to the philosophy of freedom, a crime has occurred.

Just food for thought, not meant to be argumentative. Maybe you can help me build on this.

The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.
