Abortion is one of the most polarized issues in American politics. It's also one of the worst-debated ones. Both sides tend to rely on straw-man arguments that vilify the people on the other side.
- Pro-Life people portray Pro-Choice people as wanting to kill babies. (That is, they hate Life.)
- Pro-Choice people portray Pro-Life people as wanting to control women. (That is, they hate Choice.)
Let's say a woman wants to have an operation. Should she be able to?
- If the operation will kill another person, the answer is no.
- If the operation will not affect another person, the answer is yes.
Black communities (due to a lower average income) have much higher abortion rates. Therefore they have higher needs, and denying access hurts Black people more.
But when she says that, here's what a Pro-Life person hears:
Black babies are killed much more often than white babies. Therefore allowing abortion hurts Black people more.
Abortion is allowed in the first trimester of pregnancy and forbidden in the third. States may decide what to do in-between.
You could tweak the specific week numbers, but you get the point. Pro-Life people would avoid the most heinous abortion scenarios; Pro-Choice people would avoid unwanted pregnancy for the vast majority of women, since presumably most women who get abortions know they want one pretty early. Nobody would be completely happy. But nobody would lose what they have just because political power swung a different direction this year, or this decade.
