Ireland moves toward legalizing abortion

Republic votes to remove constitutional ban on abortion by resounding two-thirds majority — 66% of the vote.

That is a version of the Great Beethoven fallacy – RationalWiki, referring to the possible abortion of classical-music composer Ludwig van Beethoven.

However, if a good person can be aborted, then a bad person can also be aborted. After the fold is some examples of that.
