This question is not an easy one. I believe that a woman has a right to terminate a pregnancy if she decides and that woman should have access to safe medical procedures to terminate that pregnancy.
That said, I think it is horrible when abortion is used as a form of birth control by those who are too irresponsible to take the proper precautions. I knew a woman who would engage in sex with whomever, till she got pregnant, then she would work the father for money for an abortion, and then go out and do it all over again.
I think in cases where the pregnancy is unwanted but viable, the children should be born and placed for adoption.
There are indeed other cases where pregnancy is not viable and now legislation is making it difficult if not impossible for a woman to get safe medical care.
Our own state legislature has passed dozens of laws over the last 2 years, among those laws, regulating the size of the janitors closet in a facility that preforms abortions, to passing a regulation that would make it illegal for our largest medical school to teach procedures related to abortion. Unfortunately, that would also make it illegal for medical students to learn the procedure to do a routine D&C. This leading the regulating body to threaten to de-certify the med school.
This same state drives female inmates to another state to get abortions, after the inmate has been raped by prison employees.
I understand the zeal of the tea party in going after abortion, but the methods they are using is ridiculous.
