"The lowest abortion rates in the world are in Western Europe where health care is available to all, according to Guttmacher Policy Review, an organization frequently quoted by both sides of the abortion debate. In the U.S., women aged 15-44 have abortions at the rate of 21 per 1,000 while in Europe that rate is 10 per 1,000.
Many forms of contraceptives - such as an IUD or the pill -- require a visit to the doctor. When health care is accessible to everyone then getting those contraceptives becomes easier. Thus unwanted pregnancies are easier to prevent.
So if your goal is to reduce the number of abortions being performed in America -- support the public option. If your goal is to save human lives -- support the public option.
I really don't see how pro-life supporters could do anything else."
.....Unless....of course....you have the same kind o' birth-control THEY do, at home....
