You're avoiding my question. We're talking here about a specifically national situation rather than abstractions. (For the record, I would vastly prefer that there be no abortions at all anywhere except for saving the mother's life, and I think most pro-choicers feel the same way. We just think there are better ways of avoiding the problem of unwanted pregnancies, on the one hand; and on the other, that banning abortion legally is a very *bad* way to avoid abortion.)
