    most abortions are sought by married women, most of whom have kids already.

      I hadn't read that statistic anywhere.

      Many long years ago I did know a married woman who was menopausal and turned up pregnant quite by surprise.  Her children were just out of high school, into college and/or working and she thought she was done with childbearing and raising children.  Her husband had enough sense to support whatever decision she came to, but left the decision about abortion to her since it was her body.  Amidst many tears and guilty feelings, she crossed state lines and had an abortion in the first trimester (the adjoining state permitted abortion at the time; I don't know if they still do or not).  She just couldn't face another eighteen+years of raising another child when she was just barely old enough to be a grandmother and had been so looking forward to more time with her husband with their grown kids all starting their young adult lives.
