Politicians cutting food stamps, medicaid, housing and fighting against affordable health care does not cause abortions. An unwanted or inconvenient pregnancy resulting from a man or woman or both not being responsible for their actions causes abortions.
If individuals would accept responsibility and have only the children they can provide health care for, educate, feed, house and clothe, then there would be no need for the government (our tax dollars) to be the one to provide for the children.
Jesus values all life. Jesus would want the children to have life, the best health care, education, food, housing and clothing. It all comes down to responsibility.
