Re: NM to criminalize abortions for rape victims.
No laws criminalising abortion in the US will ever be upheld because they will clearly be unconstitutional, which is why Huffington Post got it wrong. The bill is meant to catch rapists or someone who committed incest that force their victims to have an abortion.
"But certain interests of particular people are so important that it would be wrong - morally wrong - for the community to sacrifice those interests just to secure an overall benefit. Political rights mark off and protect these particularly important interests. A political right, we may say, is a trump over the kind of trade-off argument that normally justifies political action." - Ronald Dworkin (RIP)
