You can talk to me about the need of the choice of abortion in cases of rape/incest, and not get much argument from me. It should be the victim's choice to carry to term or abort, and everyone else can shut the hell up. I'm also not against abortion in cases where the life of the mother is truly in danger.
You're right. Birth control IS available in many forms.
It would be used in higher percentages if everyone in the country received good sex ed and had access to birth control when old enough to be sexually active (even if a teenager's parents disagree with BC as a concept or with their kid having access to BC/being sexually active).
So why do SO many who hate abortion also oppose sex ed in schools AND free condoms/access to doctors/birth control coverage on health care/minor child's right to prescription privacy?
More BC=fewer abortions.
