DNA Manhunt

Many thanks to Evelyn Konrad for pointing out the “but for” accomplices to abortion: those who produce and disseminate 23 chromosomes that live rent-free for nine months in a woman’s womb [“The ‘But For’ Clause,” Letters, May 26].

Building upon the wisdom of the red states to deputize their citizens, Congress shall enact a law across the land that locates the owners of these 23 chromosomes through extensive DNA manhunts and would offer $10,000 to anyone who captures one of these persons.

If this person does not pay for prenatal care, child care, diapers, food, rent, college (the list goes on), then a prison term, or any of Ms. Konrad’s three suggestions, would be mandatory, with no appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court.

I’m sure the wise men of Congress will swiftly enact this equal prosecution under the law.
