Death penalty for abortion sought in Florida

Wingnut theorcrats unite to kill for those they won’t support once they’re born.

From Rewire:

Florida anti-choice activists have launched a campaign to amend the state’s constitution to ban abortion care and classify the procedure as first-degree murder, which under state law is punishable by the death penalty.

The measure would not only make a pregnant person seeking an abortion and the physician performing the procedure eligible for the death penalty, but people who use any number of birth control methods would conceivably be subject to execution by the state.

“Any person who performs or procures an abortion shall be guilty of premeditated murder in the first degree, and any person who attempts to perform or procure an abortion shall be guilty of felony attempted murder,” reads the ballot initiative summary.

Under Florida law, first-degree murder is punishable by life in prison or death.

The proposed amendment describes an “unborn human being” at the “moment of fertilization,” and defines abortion care as the “use or prescription of any instrument, medicine, drug, or any other substance or device, to intentionally kill an unborn human being.”
