Abortion Laws

I am 51 years old, menopausal, and don't have to worry about getting pregnant anymore. I vote and would not vote for any candidate that would be anti-choice. I strongly believe that abortion should be kept safe legal. Closing clinics will only cause women's deaths from illegal abortions. If someone doesn't want to have a baby, they won't, one way or another.  Instead of catering to religious fanatics, if you really want to slow down unwanted births teach birth control instead of abstinence in public schools. Countries that teach birth control have a lower teen pregnancy rate and a lower rate of abortion.
