That's not even remotely coherent. What does the one have to do with the other? Nothing. Being ostracized doesn't have anything to do with whether or not a woman is being irresponsible by having an abortion, but to do with self-righteous people refusing to mind their own business.
Besides that, I haven't suggested that a woman who chooses to abort is somehow not responsible for her actions. So, again, what does public ostracization have to do with an individual's responsibility? What's the connection?
Of course, as far as I'm concerned, abortion is not in the least irresponsible. Knowing, while you're having sex, that you may have to be prepared to abort, IS being responsible. Far more so than giving birth to an unwanted child.
