I need to read it over some more, but this is the only part I have a problem
with so far. I really think it would be a bit worse than this. Firstly, I
think if abortion was outlawed, the abortion pill (I'm assuming that you're
referring to RU486) would certainly be as well. Secondly, even if what you
say here is true, I don't think women should have to resort to performing
amateur abortions on each other, with or without coathangers.

I do agree with the principles you outlined, though.
