Making abortions illegal does not reduce the steady demand for terminations by even one case. The real abortion rate in Mexico and Czechoslovak, where elective abortions are mostly illegal, is at least twice that of the United States which plainly illustrates the only pertinent point.
Making abortions illegal does not stop women from aborting. What it does is to make criminals of the...

China's Persecution of Uighur Muslims: How COVID Has Inflamed the Crisis
