there WILL be abortions as long as there are unwanted pregnancies...the only issue is whether they will be done safely and freely, or whether they will be outlawed by those who seek to impose a personal view on those who do not share their beliefs.

Abortion is not a nice thing, and it would be good if we could drastically reduce the need for them with the modern resources we have...but this is NOT one of those issues that should be subject to the back & forth vagaries of Liberal and Conservative Supreme Courts. The only opinions worthy of notice are the parents...and often, only the woman.(or, if the woman is a minor, her parents).

Statistics are interesting, but if there were only one case in 20 years, the rule should be the same.
