Abortion in the United States - The RealitySubmitted by dwalters on Sat, 09/01/2012 - 12:28

Abortion is a tough issue for many people in the United States. The right to one's own life is paramount to the success of a free society. However, the outright outlawing abortion presents practical dilemmas that cannot be ignored.
In the event that abortion was completely outlawed in the United States, affected women would flock across the borders to get the procedure done anyway. Many that could not afford to make the journey to another country would likely attempt to self-abort at home. There would be unqualified individuals analogous to drug dealers performing abortions. Prohibition has been proven to be a failing tactic repeatedly.
While I disagree with abortion and would advise women against it given the opportunity, I realize that logic and reality predict that the use of government force is not the answer. It rarely - if ever - is the answer.
If an individual wishes to end abortion, education and activism are the most reasonable solutions.
