Why Do Some People Not Understand That Abortion Is Going To Happen Either Way? Anyone Else Glad Legal Abortion Exists?

If a person cannot have responsible sex, like using protection, to prevent from getting pregnant then they shouldn't be having sex. I disapprove of women using an abortion as their birth control. Sure, there are good reasons to have an abortion, but careless sex is not one of them in my opinion. Maybe girls should be paying attention in Sex Ed instead of sexting their boyfriends or thinking they know it all. Over one million teens get pregnant every year. There is no excuse for that except stupidity.

Seeing a 17 year old girl who has a lot more common sense than grown up adults makes me sick but also gives me hope for the future.
Abortion has always been practised for centuries. Legalising it didn’t increase the number of abortions, it just decreased the number of women who died to get one. People died to get an abortion, that’s how much it affects somebody’s life, they would put their life at risk for it. A law won’t change anything apart from doing more harm to women who will be forced to go to another state or to go to somebody who’s not a doctor and will most likely do a mess.
I wouldn't do it. I had family members that had an abortion and later they couldn't have kids anymore even though they really wanted to.
Just because it's still going to happen doesn't make it an okay thing to do. Murder is illegal, yet it still happens. Should we legalize it just because it's still going to happen? No. Laws are set to show what is morally acceptable in society.
If you're old enough to be having sex, you're old enough to know how babies are made, and you're also old enough that to realize that even with protection, shit can happen (though it's pretty unlikely.) Considering you know all of those things before the fact, you should be prepared to take responsibility for your actions. I can understand why a woman would have an abortion in a rape case or something of the like, but those cases account for few abortions if you look at stats. A lot of the time, it's because somebody had careless sex and doesn't want to be responsible for their actions, and that's where I have a big problem with abortion.
The problem is that the women who want to are going to get abortions regardless of whether it’s legal or not. Life is precious, and abortion isn’t exactly a fun time for anybody involved. No one gets an abortion just for the hell of it, what kind of psychopath would? These are women who are desperate and cannot possibly care for or support that child. They are women who can be ruined by the birth of that child. If a woman wants to terminate her pregnancy, she’ll find a way. A far more dangerous and even life threatening way, but she will. If you claim to be ‘prolife’, please consider what ‘life’ entails. Otherwise you’re just pro-birth.
I'd personally prefer it if rape is done by proper medical professionals rather than the criminal circuit. To me, it's pure pragmatism

Murder is going to happen either way? Why are so many people today murderers?
People are stupid as fuck that’s why
