In the long run, it would pay for itself.
As long as abortions remained legal and accessible.
I'm not sure what that means. Paying for birth control to prevent unwanted pregnancies, paying for pro life houses where women experiencing a crisis pregnancy could live until they found a job and a house or family that would adopt the kid would be ok. Every year in America 1 million babies aborted. Saving 1 million lives a year is worth 300billion tax dollars.
If you mean the cost involved to jail offenders then sure. We cannot dodge the consequences of our actions. We should not give up our morality just because it costs a little more to preserve it. Our society would suffer worse from not penalizing killers than it would from saving a little money and letting them roam free.
In my country and province (Canada), abortion is completely free to any woman who wants one. All a woman has to do is walk into a hospital or clinic off the street - no counseling, doctor's referral or appointment need - no questions asked. As a man, I believe that it is a good use of my hard earned tax dollars and a worthy cause. For all the horrified zealot Christians on DDO, don't worry; the abortion rates in Canada have been dropping year after year consistently despite our "Liberal" policies.
Why would I pay to prevent somebody from doing something that they had to do?
People shouldn't even consider eliminating abortion.
abortion is fine
