The Law of Unintended Consequences

Among the other sad effects of abortion, it has made previously unthinkable behavior thinkable, as John Lott points out.

Over time, the looser sexual behavior that was enabled by abortion has trickled down even to younger girls -- where far too many believe that there can be casual sex without consequences.

It's always been difficult for me to understand why "abortion" is euphemized as "choice" -- after all, doesn't the real "choice" come when a woman decides to have sex, especially when it's unprotected? It strikes me that aborting a living baby created through volitional sex and/or in the absence of any severe fetal deformity or meaningful health threat to the mother isn't a behavior that we, as a nation, should be condoning.

Careful, Carol. You might get to the heart of the matter! The choicers don't want to let the fact of intercourse being the means to procreation get in the way of good sex.
