I'll simply observe at this point that some persons advocate open access 
to abortion precisely because it reduces the population from what it 
might have been otherwise.  Zero Population Growth advocates tend to be 
the most radical of all, tending to feel that any extra person upon the 
face of the planet can only be a net liability, basically just another 
consumer of resources and generator of wastes.  The viewpoint is 
repugnant, but it exists nonetheless.  I even remember a couple of years 
ago responding to a woman's letter to the editor in our local paper that 
came from that perspective.

All the best,
