There are several issues involved. First the second life and the fact that the woman must make the decisions since it is her body that carries it. Second, there is a difference between legal and moral - the legal restricts her, the moral is up to each of us to decide even if we choose badly. Third, who pays - it is one thing to to say a woman has control over her body, but another to say that each of us should not have similar control over our wealth that we earned. Fourth, a doctor has a right to say what procedures he/she will do for the same reasons that the woman wanting an abortion has a right to decide to have or not have it - it is his/her body and mind that do the work and have control over it.
