It comes down to understanding human nature.
Drugs, guns, abortions, alcohol.. Are all things many people want, look at what happens when things are banned, against the law, etc.
Washington DC with its insane gun crime - guns are banned.
Prohibition and it's lessons about alcohol.
The war on drugs and how other nations combat this war by... Legalizing or decriminalizing drugs.
Abortions follow the trend. Ban them, and you'll see underground practices, you'll see wire hanger instances, and just a lot of bad things. I'm not
judging the people, though - I'm judging the restriction.
Want less numbers of abortions? Legalize it across the board, and spend pennies on the dollar providing girls with the pill or guys with condoms.
Or, we can have it the conservatives way - ban something, allow it to create a huge black market and major problems, including statistically raising
the occurrence of the actions they disprove of.
I'm libertarian mostly for the record. Freedom without restrictions. Leave people alone unless they are literally causing you harm like you're being
assaulted or you're being robbed.
