Free contraception may prevent abortions

Contraception includes condoms and birth control pills, but there are other, longer-term methods that are effective and reversible: Intrauterine devices and implants.

A new study in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology set out to see what would happen if these methods were given out at no cost. The study incorporated more than 9,000 girls and women at risk for unintended pregnancy.

Researchers found that teen births within the group of women who were part of this program was 6.3 per 1,000, which is much lower than the national rate of 34.1 per 1,000.

"We already spend $11 -- 12 billion on unintended pregnancies in the U.S., and I bet that money could go very far to provide contraception for many women in the U.S.," said Dr. Jeffrey Peipert, lead study author and researcher at Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine.

Right wingers are not the brightest bulbs on the string.

Arizona cut off all funding for contraception and Planned Parenthood, now they have the highest rate of births paid for by the state of any state in the country.

Good job, wingnuts!

Jamal to Tahesha: "I know you're hot, wet and ready to go Tahesha, but we need to be responsible young adults. Allow me to apply this contraceptive device in an attempt to avoid an unwanted pregnancy."

Can ANY of the teabaggers actually spell?

Is it an entrance requirement for right wing extremists to not have a grasp of the English language?
