Michelle Oberman wrote an op-ed that ran in The New York Times about the realities of life in countries where abortion is banned. 

“People of good faith on both sides of the abortion war know that the best way to lower abortion rates is to deal with what causes women to want to abort in the first place. Rather than ending abortion, criminalizing abortion will merely create new ways in which the state can intensify the misery of the poorest among us.”
