Some people say abortion any time, any reason, even with repeated abortions as a means of birth control. I knew a woman, a co-worker of my husband, that had chosen to have nine of them and maybe more after we lost contact with her when my husband changed jobs.
Obviously this woman is disgusting, and you will always have these rare cases when abortion is legal. However, the repercussions of making it completely illegal would be dreadful. When people aren't ready to have a baby they shouldn't have to. It bothers me far more to see abused and mistreated children then it does that people have abortions. I think a very fair compromise would be to say that after a certain point it would be illegal to have an abortion (some trimester, I don't really know when).
