Megan McArdle, Atlantic  argues that a support, or lack thereof same, for abortion depends how easy, or hard you view child birth:
What I don’t think it reflects is simply that pro-lifers are wrapping themselves in some gauzy, glamorized notion of birth. Most women over 50 have given birth, and they are split about evenly on the question of legalized abortion. The women I know who have given birth, whether pro-life or pro-choice, do not romanticize it. They speak, of course, of the miracle that it is. But they also speak, often rather too frankly, of how difficult and often disgusting the process is. If a substantial number of pro-lifers are women who have given birth–and they are–then we pro-choicers can’t simply tell ourselves that it’s because they haven’t really thought about what birth entails.

The good news,the pro-choicers may choose to breed themselves out of existence.
