Main Question or Discussion Point

When the woman or family cannot afford to raise the child. Wouldn't this stop all suffering? I live in this universe, I came from this universe, when I die I will go back to the universe, then I will come back to life and I don't want to come back to a place where there is suffering!

Not sure I understand the question. How would outlawing abortion for the poor put an end to all suffering? Or perhaps you meant "if it were legal"?

Either way, the question is, IMHO, moot. I think the only question that means anything in the abortion debate is whether or not an unborn fetus is a living person. IOW, "is abortion killing?". I mean, driving around the streets of your hometown shooting the homeless would stop them from going through one more day of poverty, or from burdening the system. Regardless of these potential benifits, it would be wrong, because alleviating poverty by killing the poor is not an acceptable solution.

So if an unborn fetus is a living person, and abortion is murder (I'm not saying for certain it is or it isn't), then economic gain or loss becomes irrelevant.
