But the best way to reduce the number is proper sex education and access to contraception. You won't hear the 'No' gang admit this. So remember to vote 'Yes'.
Here is a simple fact of life: abortions are sometimes necessary. Most of you, I am sure, know the reasons as well as I do.
First, there are health reasons — fatal foetal abnormalities; and a risk to the life, or the health, of the pregnant woman. Then there are the compassionate reasons, including pregnancy as a result of rape or incest. Many societies with severe restrictions on abortion will allow terminations for any of these reasons.
Reasonable people, even if they are for the most part anti-choice, will admit that, in these cases, abortion should be available. That’s because these are seen as a proportionate response to tragic or violent circumstances.
