I think it is very difficult for a man to pontificate on this. I don't think it is a decision to be made lightly. Female friends who have miscarried or have struggled with infertility have experienced emotions I can't replicate. I can only imagine the turmoil a woman goes though before making the decision to have an aborition. I would rather the issue of birth control lost its stigma (though I understand even in Catholic societies it is widely practiced despite the church's attitude)than women have to rely on abortion, but I still believe it is the woman's right to choose.
