The reality is that most women do not want to go through a pregnancy where they will ultimately not have a child to raise themselves. The vast majority of abortions are done when women are in their 20s, often due to bad relationships and lack of finances. Maybe she is still in school? Maybe she has no health insurance? Maybe she has no place to live!? Maybe she was doing illegal drugs or drinking heavily? Maybe she was taking legal drugs that can cause harm to a fetus? Maybe she was date raped (most women who are raped never report the rape and don't list it on the forms at the clinic). Maybe her bf is beating her, threatening her? In half of all cases, her birth control method failed.
Yes, I know, your first line is that she can get medical coverage through her state. First of all, that is very recent and most states still do not have this coverage. Secondly, as indicated by many posters, many ob/gyns will no longer take Medicaid. What is she going to do about her job? If you are a waitress, you already are being barely paid, but you get no sick days, no vacation. You don't get paid for maternity leave. You probably have no health insurance. What if you are a college student? Now, you have to consider how you are going to complete your education because you will have to take time off in the middle of the semester.
Most of all though, why give birth to an UNWANTED baby? Babies should be wanted when they are born and even today, with abortion easily obtainable, there are far more unwanted babies born than the system can handle. Let's remember that it is only the healthy, white babies that are in demand.
I wish I had had an abortion. Instead 2 lives were ruined by adoption.
