You already asked the state to intervene

And legalize abortion. So, you want the state to intervene and legalize abortion but you don't want the state to intervene and set standards for care? That's illogical. I thought the whole point of legalizing abortion was so that women didn't have to resort to using a coat hanger and yet, if no one defines what safety is and sets the standards for safety, what's to stop a bad doctor from doing just that - using coat hangers? You can't have it both ways.

Legal or illegal, the state is involved. And the Constitution allows states the right to set safety standards. The Libertarian position is that the state protects life. What you advocate isn't libertarianism, it's anarchism.
