@degobahn eagle: I never meant to imply that abortion is nice, or that it is easy, or that is doesn't have consequences. I think it's easily the hardest decision a woman could ever make in her entire life, and it will have emotional and psychological consequences for the rest of her life. I also think having people stand outside the abortion clinic screaming murder and calling her a whore makes the entire process MUCH worse than it is.
Fine, no problem at all. I'm just saying it.

Yes, that's an incredibly useful idea on which to base your actions. I noticed the author of edlibs' article used it too. It wasn't that effective there either.
I should've written "cannot be legally hindered significantly" or something.

What I meant is that while crime, murder, abuse, and violence are being, to a large degree, kept in check with laws, I think abortion is like the marijuana that was mentioned above, or like alcohol, or little boys and girls peeing in swimming pools: You can ban it all you want (I guess 'forbid' is a better word when it comes to the pool-relieving, though), but it's just not going to do any good.

Rape, murder, and other violence is reduced by laws forbidding them.
