    Trying to stop abortion by making it illegal is like trying to stop a forest fire by pouring gasoline on it .
    You haven't quite addressed the question, Horn.

    Why do you want to decrease abortion?

    I wonder if Horn agrees - which is why I asked him to begin with.

    Would not a pedophile wish that pedophilia was legal and safe?

    If that's the conclusion you draw, ok.
    I believe we both can agree that a reduction is not a bad thing, yes?

    It's an ugly, unfortunate business. Yet, one that needs addressed.

    I'm sure it would be the rare woman seeking abortion that would rejoice at her situation.
