Though I do definitely understand the pro-life position, I personally think the problem lies on the REASONS for abortion, not abortion itself. Like war, there are times abortion is necessary, but many people have done so for extremely petty, selfish reasons.
Abortion shouldn't be considered a crime. Some mothers wouldn't be able to survive the labor, and there are cases where the child would die anyway. I would value the woman more than the bunch of cells of a fetus in her. If I were to ever become pregnant, I would get an abortion, as I have no plans on having children.
