Legalising it will not make it safer, because drugs aren't 'safe' anyway. There isn't a safe way to take heroin and be okay.
Arguable. While abortion technically 'kills' the fetus, it doesn't kill any living human, which is more important.
Cocaine/heroin can be safe and have had plenty of medical use throughout history. Morphine is essentially a more potent version of heroin used today. Cocaine/heroin isn't guaranteed to kill anybody, abortion is guaranteed to kill a fetus.
Cocaine/heroin would be safer if it was government regulated and you were guaranteed to get government grade stuff rather than the possibility of buying tainted/laced.
And let's not forget, people who want it will get it anyway and in doing so pump more money into the illegal drug trade, which most certainly causes deaths.
