34. Hekate, I so
agree with you on this!

As for the question "who controls who makes the decision?" It's ALWAYS the woman. Even under a regime where it's illegalized, desperate women find ways around that. It's just that we don't want to have to go back to those days again. In fact, the NUMBER of abortions would not decrease all that much... though official statistics might say otherwise.
