Still arguing this one

Ta-Nehisi Coates points out some truths that should be self-evident: You don't make abortion disappear. If you have the power, you can let abortion be a safe, legal process performed by medical professionals or make it a back-alley mess performed by quacks. And if you want to make abortion less frequent, you give everyone good sex education and free birth control, and empower women to say no if they don't want sex and demand birth control if they do. But that would take away the power of sex to force people into unwanted marriages, and that would make Ross Cardinal Douthat cry.
