About Abortion , I Was Just Wondering . . .

Pro Choice advocates say aborting the birth process of an unborn baby is not taking the unborn’s life.  Some States finance abortions on demand either partially or completely and also have re-instated the death penalty.  Could a State legislature finance an abortion and at the same time enforce the death penalty for murder.

I was just wondering . . .  If a pregnant woman is convicted in a court of law for capital murder and is executed lawfully, would she qualify for welfare payments to have an abortion?  The execution certainly does take life; abortion doesn’t, so we are told.  What if a woman is convicted of murder, the execution date is set, and six months before she somehow becomes pregnant?  When (and if) she is executed how many lives are taken?  -- DRS
