Abortion as birth control

August 12, 2011
In an earlier post I spoke of Russia’s huge abortion rate, and how it tends to be used as a substitute for contraception when it’s legalized.  Now there comes a report out of Minnesota that sixteen women there had their tenth or more abortion just last year.  That same report also shows that the number of abortions per live birth in black Americans is almost four times that in whites. It also showed that most of the women had used contraceptives in the past, but were not using them at the time of conception, and that the method most often used was the condom, followed by the Pill. 
The report also showed that the vast majority of abortions were done because women “don’t want children at this time,” followed by economic reasons.  Other studies have shown that women living below the poverty level are four times more likely to have abortions than those whose income is three times the poverty level.  See a discussion thread here. along with Wikipedia article on teenage pregnancy
