Thank you, Quazi!
And let me ask you something else: If a woman can't figure out how to successfully work birth control, do you think she's going to be successful at managing her pregnancy to bring about a healthy baby, and then will succeed in working through the adoption process? Because, frankly, I work with these types of people and have done so for the past 20 years. I think you're really mistaken if you think that this is all going to end well, for the babies.
Your position seems to bear little relationship to the reality of unwanted children.
I believe that abortion should be legal through the first trimester, but that once a fetus becomes viable outside the womb (at present, around 24 weeks), it should be strictly illegal.

See, we're talking about biology here. And 1/3 of all pregnancies actually are naturally terminated (biologically speaking) during the first trimester. So, I have some ethical qualms about charging someone with homicide/murder for ending a pregnancy at that point.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
