    1. A correlation can be observed between making something illegal and said thing being done less.

    2. The fact that abortion rates have been shown to decrease when abortion is legalized is not conclusive. The first rule of statistical studies is that correlation does not equal causality.

    3. All the federal funding currently being given to Planned Parenthood - the world's biggest abortion provider, could be better spent on helping said poor women who are in financial woes due to their pregnancies.

    Re: What Would Be Accomplished By Making Abortion Illegal?

    BTW, have you ever watched your best friend almost die from illegal abortion? I have. It's what made me pro choice.
    No, but I have watched a friend actually die from illegal heroin use. Somehow I didn't let that convince me that heroin should be legalized. Sure, he'd still be alive if the quality and dosage of heroin was controlled, but do I really have to explain why that would be a stupid move?

    Besides, way more females are killed from abortion being legal than they are from abortion being illegal, so nice try in pretending to care about women. You only care about the women who can vote for you, the one's who can't vote for you don't deserve your sympathy I guess...just throw them in the trash.

    Abortions have been taking place since before the early Greek days.

    Making abortions illegal only makes them more unsafe for woman.

    If you really care about the unborn you would support family planning and birth control.


    Woman do not electively abort wanted pregnancies.
    When it comes to matters of Reproductive health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    In some cases but not in this one. There is no data that supports your assertion.

    The fact that abortion rates have been shown to decrease when abortion is legalized is not conclusive.
    So the real data you deny.

    The first rule of statistical studies is that correlation does not equal causality.
    Your hypocrisy is amazing.

    All the federal funding currently being given to Planned Parenthood - the world's biggest abortion provider, could be better spent on helping said poor women who are in financial woes due to their pregnancies.
    You are spouting ignorant drivel.

    Incorrect. Legal abortion is many times safer than gestation and childbirth.
