There's been some misunderstandings about IDX (Intact Dilation and Extraction) and the main one is that it's happening to a healthy fetus when it's viable. It's not. This is a procedure done on a dead or seriously damaged fetus that is not viable or will survive outside the womb (even when fully grown) or when the mother is so sick she can not push the dead/damaged fetus out. Getting the head out can be difficult if it's late in the pregnancy and certainly no reason why a woman should die, which is what will happen if the fetus can't come out. If the fetus is damaged and not viable or dead they will induce a heart attack first so the fetus is not alive when aborted. Doing this will also save the woman from having to go through a c-section, a big operation with many risks. If she already is ill from cancer etc, a big operation can cause her more serious harm.

No the cost is already a problem. That would only lead to more women having unsafe illegal abortions in a country where it is legal.

That is where birth control and sex education comes in.

If the procedure is properly carried out, yes - further pregnancies are possible. You have mentioned "abortions" - more than one.

Abortions can put the woman's life at risk.

How Many Abortions can you get before you have to have the baby?

There is no number to fill in the blank with. If you are getting early first trimester medical abortions and being seen by an MD your chance of damage to your reproductive organs is slight. If you have multiple late abortions you are playing a game of chance, like Russian Roulette. One day you may decide you want a baby and find yourself unable to conceive. Why not prevent the abortions by using reliable birth control.
