Accountability and abortion??

There have been a lot of posts about late-term abortions, and live/partial birth abortions, so I wonder, why does it even have to go that far?

With all of the latest and greatest birth control, even PLAN B and the morning after pill, why are abortion rates so high? (1.37 million abortions in 1996 in the US) Where is the accountability of people to control their actions and not rely on abortion for the answer?

I am also so sick of hearing the Pro-abortion argument of rape, health problems, etc. Those numbers are just too low to justify the staggering numbers of abortions performed, especially in woman under the age of 25.

take a look at these stats...

  • Furthermore, by passing FOCA, the Freedom of Choice Act, how does Obama think this will help these staggering numbers?

    The Freedom of Choice Act (H.R. 1964/S. 1173) was a bill in the 110th United States Congress which "declares that it is the policy of the United States that every woman has the fundamental right to choose to bear a child; terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability; or terminate a pregnancy after viability when necessary to protect her life or her health."

  • ok...fine...whatever, change the word pro-abortion to pro-life. I got it from the website I posted. "All abortion numbers are derived from pro-abortion sources courtesy of The Alan Guttmacher Institute and Planned Parenthood's Family Planning Perspectives"


    I did this so that people wouldn't think I was getting these tragically HIGH numbers from a crazy Pro-Life source.  does the terminology really matter that much?  can we focus on the content?
