    These people want the woman punished.

    Deaths, abuse, or disfigurement from an underground abortions are exactly what they want. They see it as what the woman deserves.

    It's exactly the same rationale that allows people to support the death penalty: some innocents (in this case fetuses) will die, but it's all for the "greater good" of punishing the [insert perjorative term here] for defying [insert deity of your choice here].

    The ancillary belief is that these deaths will act as a deterrent to others, thus saving lives in the future.
