Don't Take Women Back to Dangerous Abortions

I am a woman, who in my earlier years found myself in a scary and possibly dangerous situation with an unplanned pregnancy. No one wants an abortion. It is a horrible ordeal that women would avoid, but from the dawn of time, their have been unwanted or dangerous pregnancies where an abortion is the only solution. It is imperative that the healthcare of women be left to her, her family, and her doctor. Why should anyone else be involved? No one else should be involved! While I would support mandatory counseling for anyone having an abortion, this procedure must be available to all women (not just wealthy women) in a safe location from a licensed provider. To remove this vital healthcare from women, would doom women and possibly infants to horrific maiming and death! If you force women to go through with pregnancies that are unwanted or dangerous, the blood of thousands will be on YOUR hands!
