Why does our government feel they must intervene in medical issues? It has been proven that the availability of birth control directly reduces abortion numbers. We have a strange system that says "pro life" but refuses to feed, clothe, provide medical care and educate the children who are brought into our world. All the countries that offer abortion on demand have LOWER numbers of abortions than the USA and the women are sexually active at a later age than here! Why? Because of the availability of birth control and excellent education regarding how the reproductive system works rather than myth and abstinence.
