Let's say that there is a box. There is a button on the box. If you push the button, someone somewhere in the world will die and you will get $10,000. Through an extensive investigation it is somehow confirmed that pressing the box will kill somebody.
Let's say that by means of a hidden camera 13 people are exposed as having pressed the button and receiving the money. However, all 13 people have a "good" excuse. One button pusher, an old man, desperately needed money for his granddaughter's surgical operation without which she would die. Another button pusher is a young single mom with a 4 year old child who desperately needed money to pay her bills so that she wouldn't be forced out onto the street. Another person is a young man who was the victim of credit card fraud and is now $9,000 in debt. He needs the money to pay it off.
You are a judge who is given the power to decide their fates. You do not know any of the people who died because the button was pressed. Nobody who you know knew a person who died because the button was pressed. However, you may or may not know one of the 13 people being put on trial.
What do you do? Should you let them off the hook? If you choose to do so, does that mean that the murder did not happen?

Try to find the person that made this box , they are responsible for the deaths. and see how it works. Investigate the 13 people how they got payed , who offered and other stuff like that. Harness the technology of the box . Maybe make a game show .
And question why is this called. Abortion , sympathy to mother.

Allow me to explain. The murder victim of this crime is, in a sense, invisible. What you can see, on the other hand, is the button-pusher, who has excuses that make you feel pity for them. This demonstrates how even Pro-Lifers may feel reluctant to punish the mother who had an abortion, even though this reluctance changes nothing.
