AHA is schizophrenic on the question of criminal penalties for abortion. Russell Hunter did a video in which he said murder is a punishable crime. We should treat abortion as murder. The punishment for someone who murders another human being by abortion should be the same as the punishment for someone who murders another human being with a knife or a gun. He was quite emphatic on the point:
Yet AHA been posting testimonials by women who say:
I had an abortion and I am not a victim
I am a repentant murderer redeemed by my Lord Jesus Christ.
Does AHA think that if Charles Manson was penitent, the murder charges should be dropped?
Will Abolitionist lawmakers sponsor bills to execute women who had abortions?
It's not just a question of "punishing" women. What's the just punishment for murder? Don't conservative evangelicals generally think murder ought to be a capital crime?
But I see AHA deny that they are referring to retroactive punishment. Why not? There's no statute of limitations on murder, and for good reason.
Yet I also see AHA say that "If you listened to those who created the recent memes, every one of them is prepared to go and turn themselves in for the murder they have committed, once abortion is made illegal."
What is that if not retroactive punishment?
AHA accuses prolifers of inconsistency. Doesn't seem like AHA has a consistent position.
