The woman already has the right to choose if she wants to have sex or not. No one is taking away her right to choose. It's not like secondhand smoke.
We jail murderers all the time in this country because they have taken the life of someone else. Why is that? Because we recognize the most essential liberty IS life.
"Oh, but what about rape and incest?", people say. If you want to exclude ~5% of all abortions because of rape or incest, I'm sure that many pro-life groups would help sign that bill into law. As such, it is yet another case of an extreme stituation justifiying a law for all situations.
