Why abortion?

I spent a bit of time at a thread on abortion at a conservative site this weekend. While the discussion was nominally centred on rape, implicit behind many of the posts attacking abortion was the idea that feminists/women who choose to have abortions hate children and just want to escape 'responsibility for their actions'. Not only is this completely incoherent and assumes a sexual morality antithetical to most Americans, but it doesn't hold up empirically.

Via feministing.
