How do you end or reduce human abortion?
Planned Parenthood and the Democratic Party insist that the answer is the availability of contraception to all women of child-bearing age who do not desire a child. Frankly, most conservatives probably agree.
The only area of disagreement would be: who pays? Individuals or the taxpayers?
The answer is suspect. The pro abortion Alan Guttmacher Institute reports that:
“Eighty-three percent of black women who are at risk of unintended pregnancy currently use a contraceptive method, compared with 91% of their Hispanic and white peers, and 90% of their Asian peers.” [Source: NATIONAL HEALTH STATISTICS REPORT]
If contraception is the answer, why do 44% of African-American pregnancies end in abortion, when 83% are already using contraception?
If contraception is the answer, why are 55.4% of all abortions attributed to Blacks and Hispanics, despite the widespread practice of contraception? [Source: Center for Disease Control.]
Because contraception as the solution to the tragedy of human abortion is a myth.
