As much as I dislike abortion, I also realize that the most effective way to reduce abortions is to widespread affordable access to contraception and women having control over their reproductive cycle. Prohibiting legal abortion will simply drive the practice to the back alleys. In Texas there are many stories of improvised abortion, such as kicks to the abdomen and taking questionable medications to end pregnancy. This also affects the poorer women in larger proportion. Wealthy women who want an abortion will have them regardless.
