Abortion Contraception Planned Parenthood

More on “Contraception helps reduce abortion rate.”

It looks like the “contraception reduces abortion” trope is beginning to lose its power, even among abortion providers. This LifeSiteNews article, “Two-thirds of women seeking abortions were using contraception: Britain’s largest abortion provider,” highlights many studies and statements, even by abortion promoters and providers, that contraception not only doesn’t reduced abortion rates, but actually increases them. The article focuses on a recent study by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, “UK’s largest abortion provider,” that two-thirds of women who have abortions were using contraception at the time they conceived their child.
