You bet abortion is a violence issue; restricting access sentences women to a lifetime of responsibilities that they may not be ready for. It diminishes the life chances of unwilling parents. It risks the quaity of life of their potential children. And the same politicians who work so hard to enforce pregnancy on the unwilling struggle to cut the "discretionary budget" -- the social and economic supports for families and children -- that might make unintended child rearing something more than servitude.
Yes, this is violence.
