There was a time when I bought into this argument (and you see it tossed around a LOT during abortion discussions), but I don't think I buy into it anymore. I think it's a cop out.
I do not believe in making something legal JUST because people are going to do it whether it's legal or not. People steal all the time, should we make that legal so it's safer for the thieves?
I think that IF abortion were illegal and people still chose to get them, then that is a choice that THEY make, and with that choice they assume the risk that is involved with it.
