    You're logic is flawed...perhaps influenced.
    Nope. I didn't say I expect Horn to encourage it. I just asked why he considered it "disastrous."

    Do you consider it disastrous?

    What's not disastrous about it: a potential child is lost; mother's health/life in danger; parents forced to abort their child for health reasons.

    Even if you're pro-choice doesn't mean you favor increasing these scenarios.
    You agree?

    Yes, peril to the mother; birth defects. (I forgot rape and incest on my prior list)

    Oh ...you're mincing terms. Yes, from the perspective of expecting parents...a child was what they were expecting...yes?

    Expanding upon personal perspective is always good policy...especially so when the subject is abortion. You disagree jester?

    I do not see how increasing abortions would increase those other things.

    And I do not see (from an abortion-is-not-murder perspective) how an increase in abortions is any more disastrous than an increase in birth control.

    It would simply compound an already disasterous situation?

    My mistake - I thought you were referring to law when you said it would be good policy.

    In that context, it didn't seem to make sense.

    Glassjester, of course I want to prevent as many abortions as possible in America .All pro-choicers do .
    We're not pro-choice because we like abortion and want them to happen, and no pro-choicer wants the abortion rate in America to increase . We're pro-choice because we're realistic enough to realize that making abortion illegal again would be disastrously counterproductive and only INCREASE the abortion rate enormously and cause the deaths of an enormous number of poor women .
    Trying to stop abortion by making it illegal is like trying to stop a forest fire by pouring gasoline on it .
