    There should not be debates about how many there are, or the reasons for them.

    But see comment below...

    •  I agree that the government (4+ / 0-)

      is involved to a certain extent. But legal, safe, and available is where it should end.  

      Making a national goal about reducing the number of abortions to make it rare is exactly what might lead us back down the path of unsafe backalley procedures. The goal itself implies that women cannot be allowed to make decisions for themselves.

      "Ok, ladies. You can have your legal, safe abortions for now. But if too many of you choose it, and it goes from being rare to rare plus 100, you will have crossed the line and now we will take it away from you."

      We need to change the framework of this debate. I wish I knew how.
