23. The law of unintended consequences
They have murdered in the name of life. However, this will cause even more death, as desperate women will turn -- as they did decades ago (when I was a kid) -- to back-alley abortionists or self-induced abortions.

When I was younger, before abortion was safe and legal, it was not uncommon for a pregnant woman and her fetus to die at the hands of a failed medical student, a defrocked doctor, or a charlatan in a sleazy motel room or an industrial building somewhere. Some women turned to folk remedies that were sometimes ineffective and often fatal.

The Christian terrorists will kill more people than they save -- but they'll be patting themselves on the back for this.
