Viewing child pornography versus killing babies

There was a very odd Any Questions program on BBC radio 4 today.

The first question was about looking at pictures of child pornography - not actually abusing children but looking at pictures on the internet. The second question was about abortion - the killing of unborn, human babies.

The conclusion regarding the first question was that people who look at pictures of child pornography, ie people who are not actually abusing children, should be sent to jail. The conclusion about abortion, ie murdering unborn children, seemed to be, although the panel prevaricated, that preventing abortion would infringe upon the rights of women.

It does seem very odd that the same panel and audience could come to these conclusions.
