Russia defunds late-term ‘social abortions’

The problem with restricting abortion for demographic issues is that once those demographic issues are perceived to be solved, then laws are relaxed.

Although liberal abortion laws have a disastrous effect on population, demographics should not be invoked as the main reason to restrict abortion. In the long run, it only hurts the pro-life movement.

And in any case, if people want late-term social abortions, they will invent a reason to have one. Abortion laws are only as effective as the willingness of the people to follow them.

That doesn't mean there shouldn't be any.
