25. Maybe if the "fundies" actually walked the walk...
...and truly became "pro-life" rather than just "pro-birth" that would make a difference also. If women in an unexpected or unwanted pregnancy got support during that time and after, maybe some would opt not to abort. Maybe I'm wrong, but most "pro-life" groups I see (and I always put "pro-life" in quotes) really don't care what happens after the delivery room. Recently I was browsing a "pro-life" forum where its moderator actually said her group does not care about the mother; only the child. To me, that discredits the whole "pro-life" movement.

And to me, your argument can be even more to the point. Abortion is sometimes a medically necessary procedure; therefore, it must be kept legal and safe.
