Abortion kills the child &  may have long term effects on Mom.

Only the Supreme Executioner kills. To kill in place of the Supreme Executioner is to hack in place of a great carpenter. Now if one hacks in place of a great carpenter one can scarcely avoid cutting one’s own hand.

-LAO-TZU, The Tao Te Ching, 6th century B.C.
