The only thing more outrageous than a woman casually obtaining abortion after abortion—using abortion as a birth control method—would be compelling the kind of woman who would use abortion as birth control to bring a child into the world after she hit the "sane limit" of abortions allowed her under a plan designed to prevent women from obtaining too "obscenely large" a number of abortions. (Exact number of abortions allowed to an individual woman TBD... but by whom?)
Would a woman who ran out of abortions really be a fit and loving parent to the kid(s) born to her after she hit her abortion limit? What kind of a mother would that woman make?
