Legislation and "medicalization" of abortion signal a radical change in our conception of lawmakers and judges:
- Experience shows that, in countries where abortion has been liberalized, judges have practically no possibility of bringing about respect for the law.
- What is worse still is that most of the legislation liberalizing abortion transfers to the doctor the competence of a judge. We are witnessing a new case of alienation. The lawmaker is removed from his original function: to make life respected before making property respected.
- It follows, then, that lawmakers henceforth will be better equipped to enforce the respect for property than to effect respect for the life of certain categories of human beings. They are even better equipped to protect the life of a criminal than that of an innocent person! If lawmakers are "alienated," that is, deprived of their competence to effect respect for the unborn infant, they will also eventually be powerless when it comes to insisting on respect for the elderly, the incurables, those who are defined as "burdens", etc.
