addressing the source of crime instead of the crime

Should we decriminalize murder and focus our efforts on preventing the cause of murder? That is the frequent refrain I've heard from Christian supporters of Obama in regards to abortion. Let's be clear, abortion kills a defenseless child, hence, it's the murder of a child. Why do people murder their children by abortion? Less than 5% of the time it is due to rape or incest. If murder of any human was decriminalized, we'd see a huge jump in the number of murders. This is exactly what happened when abortion was decriminalized. What is so difficult in seeing that the murder of children needs to delegalized? Are the hearts of my brothers and sisters so hard?
