In Quebec, cell phone use was recently banned while driving. The ban took effect April 1st. However, until July 1st, no legal charges will be pressed.
An offence will result in a fine of $80 to $100 plus costs and three demerit points for drivers at fault. Over the next three months, offenders will receive a warning, but starting July 1, 2008, peace officers may issue a notice of offence.
Cell phone use while driving is no more or less dangerous depending on its legality, or risk of legal consequences. So if it’s dangerous, why are only warnings being issued? Is this hypocrisy, or is there not an understanding within our society that we need to allow time for change?
Segue now to this issue.
If abortion is murder, why is NO ONE, not even pro-lifers, willing to imprison the women who have them?
… So why does she get off so easily? To really fathom their tolerance for these female killers, watch how many of them they will embrace, coddle, and hug at a pro-life rally… as long as they shows [sic] remorse.
For at least a full generation now, women have been told it is their human right to have an abortion. If a pro-abortion advocate wants to know why I might ‘coddle and hug’ a woman who is experiencing remorse over a past abortion, part of my answer is this: she is also a victim of our abortion-advocating society.
If cell phone use while driving warrants three months of leeway, how much leeway are we to offer women who have been raised and indoctrinated to believe abortion is their human right; abortion is the most valid “choice”; abortion is safe; abortion evacuates a blob of tissue; abortion is necessary; abortion goes hand in hand with the liberation of women?
Furthermore, the more we hear of attempts to silence the pro-life voice, the more it is apparent that these women are victims of a society that only wants one side of the issue exposed.
If abortion were criminalized tomorrow, I would not want to see these women imprisoned. If that makes me a hypocrite, I’m glad to be one.
