Why? If abortion is no big deal, why would you want to reduce them? If abortion is a benefit to society, a great thing for women, why would you want to reduce the number of abortions? You can’t have it both ways.
^ seriously? Grow up. Of course he wants to reduce them, they are a great thing for women. To be able to have a choice. But prevention like contraception, safe sex. Is much preferred. This is the single most stupid comment i’ve ever read. Women don’t WANT to get an abortion. They want to prevent pregnancy, so preach contraception.
Did you see what you said? “Of course he wants to reduce them, they are a great thing for women.” You’re contradicting yourself.
Fifty-four percent of women who have abortions had used a contraceptive method (usually the condom or the pill) during the month they became pregnant.
FIFTY-FOUR PERCENT. http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/fb_induced_abortion.html
And the sentence directly after that says: “Among those women, 76% of pill users and 49% of condom users report having used their method inconsistently, while 13% of pill users and 14% of condom users report correct use.” You can find the original study here.
Most of the women having abortions after using contraception were using the male condom or the birth control pill - two of the easiest methods to fuck up.
We’re human. We make mistakes. We take antibiotics, forget pills, rip condom wrappers open with our teeth, put them on backwards, get pressured by our partners, or just think we’re magically immune to pregnancy (oh yes we do).
Guess what could reduce these problems? Comprehensive sex education! Learning about saying yes and no, about pregnancy and birth, about contraception and birth control and biology, all contribute to fewer unwanted pregnancies!
