How will the attitude of lawmakers who fail to pursue their duty influence political society?
The attitude of lawmakers who abstain from repressing abortion is always invoked to make an impression on other legislators. The latter are then inclined to attack the pro-life lawmaker in the evaluation of circumstances.
Furthermore, the pro-abortion legislator does not stop at mere verbal attack: he/she often insists that the pro-life lawmaker suspends his or her activities.
Thus legislation on abortion can demonstrate real danger to free, open and responsible democratic procedures.
