Let me try this again
I don't know how to be clearer. We have all agreed that abortion is heinous. It's not something women thrill in doing. For the majority of women, it is the only way out of whatever personal hell they are in. Whether you agree with that or not, doesn't matter, because you cannot stand in the shoes of each woman that decides to do this. There is no cookie-cutter description of a woman about to have an abortion. Some may be the lazy sluts you so eloquently describe, some may be abuse victims. I'm sure it runs the whole gamut of women.
But there is one thing they all have in common. The belief that it is not the time to have a baby.
So, here we are. Those women will still get an abortion, even if it is illegal. Making abortion illegal will not take away "choice" but it will take away whatever proper medical precautions it now has. And women will pay dearly, even to criminals, to end the pregnancy.
So, go ahead and talk about murder, and morals and righteousness all you want. It doesn't matter one iota to the women seeking abortions. And there will always be many.
Should the pro-life people succeed in reversing Roe in this country, if will cause more harm than good.
And I'll say this one more time again also. I am not "pro" abortion, I am "pro" woman.
