The way to cut down on abortion is to cut down on unintended and/or unwanted
pregnancies. That is best done through sex education (including, but not only,
abstinence -- in other words, "abstinence-plus" not "abstinence
only") and readily-available conraception, and providing assistance to
pregnant women so, when their fetusus are born and become babies, they are able
to provide for them (and also themselves). Stop, or at least cut down on, the
problem -- unwanted pregnancies -- by preventing unwanted prgnancies. THAT is
where responsible legislation should be directed.
