The fact is, anti-abortion people really don't want abortions to go away
First there was RU486, the "day after" contraceptive pill and now there is a new one that is reputedly effective up to 120 hours after conception. So, the fact is, we have two different ways to make sure that a true abortion procedure never has to happen again. That's a fact. But the other fact is, the anti-abortion side, the anti-abortion people don't want this issue to go away. They want to keep their "good fight". And it's stupid. It's tragic. Young men and women, ladies and gentlemen--even not so young, for that matter--are going to have sex. They are going to "mess around." They are going to procreate, whether they want a child or not. And after that experience, some of those young women are going to conceive--an egg will be fertilized in some of those cases, like it or not, wanted or not. And if these young women could take a simple, effective pill to avoid going further to term with that conception, then so much the better, clearly. An unwanted child wouldn't have to be brought into the world. An abortion would be avoided. Clearly, that's a good thing. But the anti-abortion people have fought RU486 and they will, no doubt, fight this new, even more effective pill with all their might, all so they won't lose their one objection--so they won't lose their goal and job and that is, fighting abortions. It's stupid. It's senseless and if these people really had the interests of the possible infant and the young woman in mind, they would absolutely allow these new contraceptive pills in as soon as possible, so abortions would be decreased, if not even eliminated. But it won't happen because they want their fight. They know millions of dollars can be raised in the name of fighting abortions and they don't want to lose that power and energy. So abortions will go on, and all because of them, instead. Stupid. Really stupid. Selfish. Irresponsible. Nearly insane.
