LOL! You have tons of credibility so everyone takes what you say with a grain of salt.<quoted text>
Wrong again carol, you made a statement without even a scintilla of evidence to back it up and your response as well as this post are also totally devoid of any factual basis.
Abortions account for only 3% of the services Planned Parenthood provides as opposed to 41% for STD screening and treatment, 32% for contraception and 12% for cancer treatment and prevention.
Sonograms are an unnecessary procedure whose only purpose in these cases is to introduce shame in an already difficult decision.
Those of us on the left are wholly in favor of legislation that makes abortion unnecessary such as Rosa DeLauro's Preventing Unintended Pregnancies, Reducing the Need for Abortion, and Supporting Pregnant Women Act, comprehensive legislation that pairs prevention programs like increased access to contraception for low-income women and comprehensive sex education with support programs for pregnant women and new moms, including expanded health coverage for pregnant women and children, a national adoption campaign and support for pregnant and parenting students. It aims to reduce the prevalence of abortion by addressing its root causes: unintended pregnancies and the lack of resources and help for women who become pregnant. Each year, roughly 1.2 million women undergo an abortion and approximately one out of every five pregnancies ended in abortion. Nearly half of all pregnancies are unintended and about 60 percent of abortions are had by women with incomes at 200 percent or below of the poverty line.
The only thing that ideologues like you want to do is ban abortions which would not end them but drive them underground and put women into the hands of more Kermit Gosnells.
How's Sweden doing?
