I imagine that these both are horrible things to have to go through.

O.o

Any woman found to have had an abortion, and any medical professional found to have given an abortion will be lawfully put to death.

Scenario 2: The government has mandated that the right to reproduce is only held by those qualified to do so. To be qualified you must pass very difficult requirements regarding finances, education, personal beliefs, knowledge of child development, knowledge of child rearing, marital status, etc. If you are not deemed qualified to reproduce, you are forced to get an abortion upon becoming pregnant. If you have the child without qualification, the child will be seized and kept from you for all of your life. You (and assisting medical staff) will also be jailed for 2-4 years.

So which scenario is worse? Imagine you had to choose one country to live in. Which would you NOT choose?

IMHO, scenario 2 is worse, because it would have impacted me personally.

edit: a couple of other points
- since (2) is more enforcable, it's also worse for that reason
- although I do support abortion rights, forcing someone to carry to term is a 9 month sentence, option (2) is for life

Softly, softly, catchee monkey.

Yeah, I am unable to commit to one of the two choices given. They negate my idea of choice; neither can reflect any essence of me, creates a conundrum within me if I commit to a choice.
