"[I]n some form" is doing a lot of heavy lifting here. Many pro-lifers don't have a problem with it in cases of, e.g., ectopic pregnancies.

Some of them say they'll allow abortion in certain circumstances and then make the criteria impossible to meet. Meanwhile others are writing laws mandating doctors do procedures that don't even exist as an "alternative" to aborting ectopic pregnancies 🤦‍♀️💀
