Unprotected intercourse?

Half the babies aborted (well, 45%+) were conceived while the mother was using contraceptives.

The contraceptive attitude produces a seared conscence. It's an attitude that says

Once you've convinced yourself of that, than any pregnancy will strike you as an injustice and an imposition. "I did the responsiblee thing. I used a contraceptive. IT'S NOT FAIR!!!"

Abortion acceptance follows contraceptive acceptance as night follows day.

It may seem couneintuitive, but historically abortion rates rise AFTER the introduction of widespread contraception.

Food is meant to be tasty and satisfying so the body can ingest nutrition for energy and the building of the individual body.

Sex is meant to be pleasant and satisfying so that a new life may be created and the human race may continue.

Contraception and abortion are to sex what bulimia is to food. They are destructive practices, not life-giving ones.

Sex is a powerful, life-giving force, but like fire it is a good servant and a poor master. Ripped out of its proper context of the family, it creates widespread destruction.

Let's be very specific about this. Around 25% of girls having abortions *claim* to have been using contraceptives at the time they got pregnant (according to studies). None of the studies can actually verify contraceptive use (nor do the study authors want to verify that). In my experience, I have *never* met someone who claimed to be using contraceptives when they got pregnant.

A very significant thing that I remember is that, back in the early 70s, right after Roe vs. Wade, a PP representative came to "educate" my high school biology class. She gave the failure rates of various contraceptives--none of them were less than 95% reliable; most were around 99%. But, after several years of easily accessible abortion, there is no contraceptive with over 80% reliability. Does that mean the contraceptives changed? No. It means that women are lying about using contraceptives when they weren't.

It may seem couneintuitive, but historically abortion rates rise AFTER the introduction of widespread contraception.

There are a number of reasons for that. One, is that more girls having intercourse leads to more pregnancies, no matter what kind of contraceptive is used. The other is that, if PP is giving the contraceptive information, they stress how unreliable and dangerous contraceptives are, and how safe abortion is in comparison--so that while they are giving lip service to encouraging contraceptive use, their actual action is to discourage it. (I remember this from my own experiences with PP as a teenager, and I have seen no evidence that PP's tactics have changed.)
