VI. Legislation
040   Law reflects morals. Since abortion has become an accepted part of our morals, should it not be legalized?

041   Don't laws liberalizing abortion at least have the advantage of limiting it?

042   If in a democracy it is the majority that decides, can Congress not change the law?

043   In order to protect itself, can society not pass prohibitions?

044   Does not the failure to apply the law show contempt for a State based on law?

045   A "juridical void" is denounced in some countries. Is such a void admissible?

046   Since people are having abortions, isn't it better to legalize them and make them a medical procedure so that they will be performed "under safe conditions"?

047   Can we reproach legislators for defining the conditions under which abortion can be authorized?

048   The fact is that there are clandestine abortions. Hence, would it not be better to legalize abortion in order to diminish their number?

049   Do lawmakers not have the power to enact for laws liberalizing abortion?

050   Isn't there a difference between "decriminalizing" abortion (i.e. removing it from the penal code) and "liberalizing" it (i.e. making it easier to obtain)?

051   In the debates about liberalizing abortion, some have at times requested that the state remove the guilt of abortion. What does this term mean?
