When the desire for ideal conditions gets in the way of life

The Alan Guttmacher Institute web site's is promoting a recent study based on "in-depth interviews with 38 women who obtained abortions in the United States in 2004." Their summary of the research notes:
In addition, many of the women surveyed made direct and indirect references to the "ideal" conditions of motherhood, expressing the view that children are entitled to stable and loving families, financial security, and a high level of care and attention.

The title of the article (abstract here) appears to be a quote from one of the one of women interviewed:
"I Would Want to Give My Child, Like, Everything in the World"

Does the prolife message reach women like this? How can we better share that mothers don't need to give their child everything but they should at least give them a chance at life?
