...the existence of a right to an abortion means only that, if a woman has one, neither she nor the person who performed it will be prosecuted. Manifestly, such a right is not worth anything in the absence of qualified people who are prepared to carry out abortions, and even then it is not worth much to poor people unless the public hospitals offer them without charge. But we are inviting confusion if we skip over the absence of a prohibition and equate a universal right to an abortion with the universal opportunity for any woman who wants one to have one.
