1) Abortion being available is not abortion being mandated.I mean A. a one-off incest child is very unlikely to be some horrible mutant child, and B. those with genetic disorders aren't forbidden from having children. The post-birth life of the child isn't considered when it comes to the abortion debate, legally speaking.
European royalty all being a little fucked up comes from almost 1,000 years of inbreeding.
2) Laws are blunt instruments. Unless you want to figure out exactly the number of times you should allow people to inbreed before it becomes illegal, on top of the moral and ethical fucked-upedness, it's probably better to ban the whole thing. Otherwise you get ye' ol Japanese rape laws where incestual sex between parents/aunts/uncles and kids was perfectly legal as long as violence wasn't (proven to be) used. They only changed that, like, a decade ago. Probably not coincidentally, that was also where most of the world's child porn was coming from at the time.
