    What are you trying to say, here? That any woman who suffers a miscarriage should be charged with manslaughter?

    I see. So, you know your beliefs have been proved false, vicious and evil, so you are trying to change the subject. Check.

    Voting is the alternative to government by violence. If you take away people's ability to vote, you give them the right to oppose the government by violence. It's that simple.
