food for thought

A study published in British medical journal The Lancet this week says that women are just as likely to have abortions performed in countries where it is illegal as they are in countries where abortion is legal.

Previous studies have shown, even more, that some countries (like Belgium and the Netherlands) which combine permissive abortion laws with ease of access to artificial birth control and aggressive sex education efforts, have LOWER abortion rates than countries like Ireland where abortion is simply illegal.

So, if evangelicals and Catholics were REALLY interested in curbing abortions, instead of just controlling women, the way is open.
