Instead of participating in the never ending argument, lets try to progress in ways that we can all agree on. We don't want abortions to take place and we also want women to have full control of their own lives. Women who have abortions are likely to suffer emotional trauma afterwards. Friends of mine have had unplanned pregnancies, being faced with making a life changing decision on a timeline. Birth control prevents people from even getting to that point.
If you really want to see a decrease in abortions, universal birth control is the answer. If you oppose universal birth control even still, then you clearly don't care about lowering abortion rates. You just want to punish women for having sex.
I believe we need to work together to progress. We've come to a standstill with pro-choice vs. Pro-life. Unless we're going to install cameras in people's homes, to make sure they are sexually abstinent, we need to have a plan for when they are not.
Overpopulation is a problem, mental distress women face from abortions or sexual abuse is a problem, and prolonging an argument that can easily be resolved is a problem.
