Wow!!! All these added up together sure could help women who face an unplanned pregnancy...

Oh, I forgot - the money is coming from those who buy into the lie that abortion will solve everything - it would be horrible to take their livelihood away...(snark!)

World estimations of the number of terminations carried out each year is somewhere between 20 and 88 million.(likely 55 to 60)

Over 3,500 per day / Over 1.3 million per year in America alone.

50% of that 1.3 million claimed failed birth control was to blame.

A further 48% had failed to use any birth control at all.

And 2% had medical reasons.

That means a staggering 98% may have been avoided had an effective birth control been used.


I'd like to see effective birth control made available to all who can't afford it.

aus blog - what in your opinion, is effective birth control?

And perhaps you could answer this, too...WHO is going to make this effective birth control available to those who cannot afford it?

What is the 'cannot afford' criteria going to encompass?
