I think I addressed all of your other points in other posts and agree with some of them.
Abortions by other means, coat hangers, purposefully failing, using chemicals etc. are happening whether it is legal or not. They are happening now by people who have no money or want to try other things before paying for one.
The idea that people are going to do a thing or not so we might as well help them be safe in it is not a logic that we use much of in deciding what should or shouldn't be legal.
