    I'm for that, too.  Reducing unwanted pregnancies is the shortest route to that goal.

    The best way to do it is make birth control widely available and affordable.  Make sure Planned Parenthood stays in business.  A little sex education in the schools:  Todd Akin would certainly would have benefited from that!  (Along with the aspirin between the knees guy, and Rush Limbaugh, too.)

    •  Absolutely. (0+ / 0-)

      Plus adequate childcare, adequate food and healthcare, paid maternity or paternity leave; the list is quite long of things to do to reduce abortions. And if reducing abortion, rather than controlling someone's else sexual behavior, is someone's goal, one would think that is a bandwagon everyone could get on.

      After all, no one wants an abortion. Someone may want one as opposed to the alternative. Someone may feel that an abortion is her best option. But I would bet Mitt's $10,000 that no one has ever gotten pregnant because she wanted to do so just because she wanted to have an abortion.
