What do you say to the fact and the studies done that prove making abortion illegal will not stop abortions? Do you support free birth control, free healthcare for pregnant women, plenty of maternity leave and paternity leave?
Do you really believe that if abortion is illegal and the law is ENFORCED, that the epidemic levels of abortion will remain unchecked? I don’t think so. I agree that there will still be abortions, just like there is still other forms of murder, just like there is rape and kidnapping. Laws cannot prevent crime, but they can deter them and provide punishment as a way to administer justice.
I do support free birth control so long as it is not an abortifacient. Public assistance for the care of pregnant mothers without the means to purchase health insurance is and should continue to be provided. Many companies and the federal government provide maternity, and more recently, paternity leave. I agree that these should be more generous.
Attempting to solve society’s problems through the use of violence against its innocent members is wrong and immoral.
