Because she can, and no one ever need know. There was a time when women just "took care" of things like pregnancy after a rape, or even if a woman just knew they could not care for another child, she also knew how to take care of the situation.
This became a "political issue" when women decided they needed a doctor involved. First, it was black market doctors, that did not go over well. Now, it is legal and profitable, equally reprehensible. But the fact is, any woman who wishes to handle such matters privately will always have the right to do so. And if and when women simply accept this and stop allowing the government into their reproductive responsibilities, abortion will no longer be a political football.
Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
