Study Shows That The Abortion Rate Falls Dramatically When Contraception Is Free

seriouslyamerica:

A study published last fall in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology shows that providing free birth control to women and teenaged girls does, in fact, have a dramatic impact on the rate of unintended pregnancy, which, in turn, impacts the abortion rate.
