Can you cite which women view abortions as a means of contraception? Do you have a link to that quote? How many women view abortion as a "perfectly acceptable means of contraception"? I know hundreds of women. Not a single one of them view abortion as a form of contraception. Irresponsibility.. As noted and supported with evidence, women are often prevented for a variety of reasons from being able to access one earlier on in the pregnancy. Do you have evidence that women are waiting until the third trimester and subjecting themselves to a much harder and more complicated procedure which poses greater risks to their well being because she just didn't bother to get it done sooner? That she's just a slack arse who is simply irresponsible? Studies? Anything? 21.6 million women, 68,000 deaths, millions scarred for life - women who obtained unsafe and illegal abortions because to do so safely and legally was a "no go option". Do you have any proof that making it illegal will mean that women will simply not get or have abortions past what you have pegged as the foetal pain mark? In all truth, do you actually and honestly think that women who need abortions aren't going to get them one way or the other? 68,000 deaths and millions scarred for life.. Is this an acceptable figure in your opinion? WHO view it as a pandemic. And it is wholly preventable if women were able to access safe and legal abortions. So do you honestly think that a woman who needs an abortion in the third trimester is not going to get one anyway? Would you prefer she obtains it illegally and in an unsafe and dangerous environment? Or that she is able to access one in a safe and legal environment where she can be counseled and helped to perhaps consider her other options? Yes or no?
