I'd rather have one state be SOL, then have the entire country be SOL when the tide against abortion wins on the federal level. At least with one state being SOL, charities and foundations can be set up to transport woman out of there to have their abortions. With the entire country under an abortion ban then every single state is SOL. It takes 50 states to ban abortion in this country if we go state-by-state. If we simply go by the Federal Government, it only takes a majority of congressmen and supreme court justices to ban abortion.
However, I agree with you that in an ideal world, no one would be able to ban abortion.
ps. I don't agree with your slavery = ban abortion metaphor.
