Abortion leads to more people having STDs, thus abortion should be illegal. Agree or disagree?

So i overheard a debate about legalizing abortion. My Friend said that they should not legalise abortion because in this case, lesser people would use protection because abortion is legal and in the worse case people could just abort the baby, which leads to more people contracting STDs. Do you guys think that because of this reason, abortion should be illegal?

    No. Your friend is making a very poor argument. There is no correlation between abortion access and the rate of STD infection. A woman should have the freedom of choice and the government needs to stay out of it.

    That's like saying that cars should be illegal because driving leads to more car crashes.

    Or that food should be illegal, because eating leads to more choking.

    There is no evidence that legalising abortions increases abortion rates significantly. What it does do is save the lives of women who would otherwise undergo illegal abortions in poor conditions.

    I think it should be illegal because who ever aborts is killing a child.

    This retired medical professional must inform you that your friend is an idiot. There is no connection between the availabilty of abortions and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Think for a moment about the sort of people who have indisciminate sex. How many of them are concerned about consequences? Certainly the make half are totally unworried. They will happily spread their infection with all comers (pun intended) regardless of the risks.

    Funding of Planned Parenthood (which doesn't go towards abortions no matter HOW vehemently some idiots argue) actually causes a REDUCTION in the number of abortions by providing low-cost birth control methods and actual sexual education (abstinence-only is a failure of monumental proportions).

    There is a direct statistical correlation between the availability of birth control and the lower number of abortions. This is not coincidence.

      Do you REALLY want to do that, Jimmy? Do you REALLY stand shoulder-to-shoulder with TERRORISTS who have MURDERED AMERICANS? Because touting O'Keefe's bullshit is doing exactly that!

    Abortion is the brutal murder and barbaric butchery of innocent human lives. THAT'S why it should be ended.

    I wonder if that's why Trump slops on the orange make up- to hide the telltale marks of syphilis.
