Want to Reduce Abortions and Unintended Pregnancies?

Give out free contraception.

Especially the kind that costs a lot but works much better. The implantable kinds.

See, some people in St. Louis did a 3-year study. Turns out that, you know, contraception prevents conception. Good thing we had a study to tell us that!

Obamacare will make contraceptives free to insured women (though I’m not sure if it will cover the fancy-pants kind). (Also, there will still be some uninsured women, despite the massive expansion of coverage ensuing not-soon-enough.)

Yahoo! Happy Friday!

    I wish it would be pointed out more often that anti-choice zealots often promote policies that lead to more abortions, because they are often anti-contraception as well.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Well, they’re anti-sex. People shouldn’t have sex unless they are emotionally and financially prepared to have a baby. Other kinds of sex are an offense against the lord. Contraception violates this sacred use of the (woman’s) body.

      And religion is fine. But when it it interferes with the proper function of the state—keeping people healthy, preserving people’s (women’s) authority over their own lives (bodies)—then, well, our country was founded to keep the former from interfering with the latter. Lest tyranny reign.

I'd love to hear what you think!
