Study: Free birth control dramatically reduces abortions, teen births



Published: Thu, October 4, 2012 @ 11:16 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP)

Free birth control led to dramatically lower rates of abortions and teen births, a large study concluded Thursday, offering strong evidence for how a bitterly contested Obama administration policy could benefit women's health.

The project tracked more than 9,000 women in St. Louis, many of them poor or uninsured.

They were given their choice of a range of contraceptive methods at no cost - from birth control pills to goof-proof options like the IUD or a matchstick-sized implant.

The Bible thumping republicans need to keep their noses out of womens uterus'!!
Stopping an egg from dropping for fertilization is a whole lot different than abortion. If they don't want abortion then the alternative is birth control. Sex is a natural thing and everybody does it. It is healthy for us. You aren't ever going to stop people from doing it, it is in our genetic make up to have the urge to do it. So give women the means to not become impregnated with a child they cannot afford or one they will neglect or abuse. This way, women won't seek out abortions nor will they need to do a 'home abortion'. It's very very simple.

They ve got more than their noses in. Some states require women to be raped by a transvaginal ultra sound wand before they can get an abortion.

That transvag ultrasound is so they can get a very clear picture of what they call a BABY in hopes that the woman will recognize the jelly like blob as her baby and change her mind. It is a cruel mind game. They will take weeks to schedule the ultrasound and by the time she is able to have the abortion, it will be too late, she will be too far into her pregnancy and be forced to give birth to a child she does not want or cannot afford.

Adoption you say?? How many kids are already sitting in foster homes?
