60% of all women who go in for abortions go because their birth control failed?! Where did he get that number from?
He probably means using it as birth control.
60% of all women who go in for abortions go because their birth control failed?! Where did he get that number from?I'm sure it's from a survey, but it's also just logic. Suppose that a method of contraception has a 99% "success" rate. With tens of millions of U.S. women of reproductive age having sex monthly, you see how the Law of Large Numbers translates to 600,000+ abortions due to contraceptive failure annually.
This is why America will never be able to contracept its way out of the abortion crisis. Pregnancy is the natural results of sex, all methods of contraception have some "margin of error," and therefore every sexually active woman will eventually have an "unintended pregnancy."
Contraception is at the root of our current moral disorder.
