Here's the response I posted to my Facebook 'friend':
I'm going to have to refute what you've said about abortions, unfortunately. No woman ever uses abortion as a 'quick fix'. Having an abortion is not akin to stitching a patch over a hole in a pair of jeans, or re-attaching the handle of a broken coffee mug with a bit of glue. There will be no abortion 'free for all' because deciding to have an abortion is not an easy decision to make. To be very frank, I had an abortion at the age of 40. At the time, I felt I was neither financially able nor emotionally prepared to raise a child. Would you have denied me the ability to choose to terminate the unwanted pregnancy as I had not conceived through rape?
