Why do we want to ‘reduce’ abortions

We hear a lot from the Left about “reducing” abortions. As Bill Donohue pointed out during the 2008 election, since when is there a “constitutional right” that we want to “reduce”?

If abortion is bad, it’s bad. If it’s not bad, then why “reduce” it?

Indeed, the radical abortion lobby is annoyed by Obama’s talk of “reducing” abortions for that very reason (besides that it cuts into their profits).

Should rape be “safe, legal and rare” because it’s necessary for some men to vent their frustrations?
Should terrorism be “safe, legal and rare” because it’s necessary for some Muslims to fulfill their religious obligations?
Should embezzlement and bank robbing be “safe, legal and rare” because they’re necessary for some desperate people to pay their bills?
