By that logic, then we should legalize stealing. I mean, thieves are going to steal anyway whether there are laws meant to stop them or not. If we legalized theft, we wouldn't have to worry about police getting shot at or thieves getting injured trying to get away from the police. Heck, we also wouldn't have to pay as many cops since that would be one less crime they would have to worry about.
The fundamental difference between abortion and heroin is when someone is willingly taking heroin into their body, at that moment it is a victimless crime. The potential for violence is a whole different argument, but, assuming that we're both against victimless crimes, except when a person is committing a crime against himself such as smoking, drinking, drugging, etc., then heroin should be legal. Abortion is not a victimless crime or a self-inflicted crime. It is a crime against another human being. To say that we shouldn't have laws because people will break them anyway isn't logical. It is the government's job to protect those who can't protect themselves from harm of their person or property.
