always going to happen to some degree, just as it always has... but we can try to radically reduce the numbers, probably to almost nil, with aggressive and comprehensive sex education, as well as better contraception, and far easier access to it for all those folks who choose to have sex.
That was the entire point of me including that Slate article into the discussion: There is evidence that this particular approach has already helped.
For those few who, despite everything, despite all of our best attempts to dissuade them otherwise, still decide to go the abortion route, should we, as a presumably caring and understanding society, then be forcing them down illegal and dangerous paths?
