Julie Bindel: “Shall we bring back the death penalty?”

Julie Bindel has just re-published this, originally published 10 years ago. I’ve posted the following comments, and taken a screensave for posterity:

Julie, you write:

“The death penalty is an example of calculated, cold-blooded, premeditated murder. As a feminist who has spent my entire adult life campaigning to eradicate violent crimes towards women and children…”.

It may surprise you to learn that I, too, am against the death penalty for a number of reasons. But you could (and I would) replace “The death penalty” with “Abortion”. It would be equally true.

The WHO estimates that around 75 MILLION abortions are carried out every year, and there’s no end in sight for the largest genocide the world has ever seen, strongly supported by feminists.

The number of abortions carried out in the UK is at an all-time high – 210,000+ p.a. – 56 years after the Abortion Act 1967. More than 10 million unborn children have been killed in the UK alone. Every one of the victims is innocent, which is more than can be said for most of those sentenced to the death penalty.
