Some people are concerned with the plausibility of outlawing abortion. They wonder how effective of a monitoring system there could be.
If abortion becomes illegal, how will we monitor women who might attempt to have abortions? How would we prosecute them and what would the consequences be?
The focus should be on what will happen to our society if we do NOT outlaw abortions.
First and foremost, having an abortion can be a traumatic experience for the woman, who might feel caught in a crisis situation.
Most times, having an abortion is not something they want to do. Giving them support and other options is important.
Also, right now, women who have abortions in the instances of rape and incest are the exception and not the norm.
Countless women have abortions because they are easy to procure, and do not require any kind of reasoning or rationale.
At the very least, making abortion illegal will challenge parents to take responsibility for their actions.
Babies, even if they are not yet born, deserve at least some legal protection.
