Probably because of the argument that it really doesn't matter and is none of our business.
If someone gets an abortion without telling anyone, then we wouldn't even know or care. That's called privacy.
The question you have to ask is why do you care?
You say "the responsibility of being a parent," but that might actually be improved with abortions. A parent can be responsible by
-investing money for the costs of the child
-caring for the child
If a person does not want the child or cannot afford the child, then they are not really being responsible by having it.
Yea, I would say that not taking these risks is the most "responsible" thing to do in the case you cannot have a child. But if you are already past that point it comes down to forcing people to take care of something they may not have the resources to.
