42. So we should ban abortion?

 

Hey, if you insist that it'll stop SOME people from getting one, maybe it's a good idea?

As for the arson bit, for the second time I will point out what a stupid attempt to make a point that is. No one is suggesting making gun violence legal here 'just because it's going to happen anyway'. The correct analogy, if you'd chosen to put a little thought into it, would have been: 'Maybe we should make gasoline illegal so people couldn't commit arson'.

That, of course, would also be stupid.
