Executions only take a lot of time and resources today, because there are so few of them today.
In the old days, executions were carried out fairly quickly, cheaply, and took very little resources.
After we execute the first 10 or 20 thousand women and doctors, the executions will go quite smoothly and quickly.
I dont know if the number of abortions will decrease(except in the cases of repeat offendors- there wont be any), that is speculation, but if fewer women have abortions because of the death penalty, if more women choose to use birth control, then all the better.
The war on drugs takes a lot of time and resources because we dont execute offendors. You cant compare apples and oranges. Not the same thing.
