'Abortion vs. Adoption'

The Supreme Court would never outlaw abortion. It would simply say that abortion was not a right guaranteed under the Constitution. Every state would then come up with its own law, the more "liberal" states restricting abortion by allowing government to climb into women's wombs, the more "conservative" states allowing it because they would "get government off the backs of the people."

As for the number of abortions, not much would change except for more interstate travel for desperate women and a few trips to Canada.
