Beware "Maternal and Fetal Indications"

Women who don't want abortions are being frightened into them by doctors who recommend abortion at the first hint of trouble.

Claims that legalizing abortion only makes it available to women who want abortions ring hollow when compared to the reality of women browbeaten into unwanted abortions. We as a society need to decide which we prefer: for women who truly want abortion to have to go to some trouble to arrange it, or for women who want to have their babies to have to fight tooth and nail against a medical establisment urging them to abort. We're told that legalization is at worst the lesser of two evils. Evidence is that legalization has unleashed a whole new set of evils upon mothers and children.
