Laws about abortion in your country, practice of abortion (induced abortion), cases of abortion, discussion on abortion?

Varies: The laws about abortion vary from state to state from serious obstacles to very little obstacle. We have a serious problem with these issues in the usa largely from groups stating that god disapproves (even though not in the bible) and that potential life begins at conception therefore anything preventing development is killing.

Legal abortion statistics are still high, right. What happens if republicans rule?

Legal abortion statistics are still high, right. What happens if republicans rule?
