Thought experiment

Portion of a conversation:

Me: Robbing a bank is reprehensible and no one should do it.
Other person: Yes, I agree.
Me: So then why don't you think we should have laws against it?
Other person: Because then only rich people would be able to get away with robbing a bank and that wouldn't be fair.

Does that make any sense?  To get the original version of the conversation, replace "robbing a bank" with "having an abortion."  Does it make any more sense?  Why or why not?
