In this question: If conservatism believes in individualism, then why do conservatives often support regulation of personal decisions?, the questioner asks why right-wingers regulate "personal decisions", despite claiming that they believe in individualism.
I think that's a good question and probably exposes some of the hypocrisy in right-wing politics, however, one example of "personal decisions" that is mentioned in that question is abortion.
This is a bit bizarre, I think. Do people really consider abortion a personal decision?
I personally think abortion is one of the most non-personal topics in politics. Why? Two reasons:
Abortion involves the life of somebody other than the person making the decision. There's the woman, and then there's the fetus. The decision is therefore not a personal one, since by definition it involves persons other than the woman.
The second reason is that abortion, as it is typically discussed, involves a system where we, as a society, endorse facilities and resources so as to make abortion feasible (doctors, hospitals, medicine, etc, etc, etc). When we say "abortion", we don't think of a woman performing the abortion herself, rather we think of society making certain services available for that woman. Hence, it is again a non-personal decision, since it involves other people providing a service. The woman does not perform abortion herself.
