I wouldn't because they're not.Ok, that doesn't really address my point though, does it. My point is not that they didn't base their legislature on the sanctity of life, my point is that banning abortion and permitting the death penalty aren't contradictory.
Let me put it this way: forget what the legislature is, how would you personally justify arguing that executing, let's say, a murderer, is completely the same as aborting an unborn child? I'm not being facetious by the way, nor am I trying to tie you in loops, I'm genuinely interested in your answer.
* Executing a criminal is abhorrent, state sanctioned murder.
* Having an abortion is a medical procedure to stop a foetus becoming a live human. It isn't "killing an unborn child". You're begging the question.
