Hmm... I don't know about 2nd degree murder measures, 0,5-3 years just seemed enough suffering and discouragement for the ladies. But it is nice to know that this is comparable to 2nd degree punishments. Nice, I haven't thought about the poor trade of physician. I fairly doubt if any would help in 3rd trimester problems if 1st and 2nd is legal. It could be me, but I always assume the Physician abides by the rules... I find it very hard to propose a measure for the physician. I think 3 to 18 months imprisonment and permanent loss of the licence to practice a medical profession. It is kind of Hippocratian, I know, but there are certain lines I think a physician should not cross, and third trimester abortion is one of them. Besides, docs really watch out not to lose their license, so that would mean the occurence, if any, would be very low. Yes sorry, my Swahili isn't that good these days... What I mean to say was that I replied in the post directly opposing your statement... As usual. (yes, I know this is a sidestep, but an interesting one, to my opinion... I am not talking about free trade, I am talking about medical prescribtion, that is completely different. But, if I may ask... what is "the" problem? Is is people being addicted? the trouble junks cause? People getting addicted?
