“By providing millions of young and low-income women access to voluntary contraceptive services, the national family planning program prevents 1.94 million unintended pregnancies, including almost 400,000 teen pregnancies, each year. These pregnancies would result in 860,000 unintended births, 810,000 abortions and 270,000 miscarriages, according to a new Guttmacher Institute report.”
Guttmacher is saying is that it’s better to just give away our tax dollars to sexually active single women for contraceptive services than to teach them to NOT HAVE SEX. And, that all of the unintended children that were conceived can be aborted with tax dollars to take the burden off the public to feed, clothe and give medical services to. Talk about a knight in shining armor…and we get to pay for it.
“More than nine million women received publicly funded contraceptive services in 2006. Another two million women received Medicaid-funded family planning care from private doctors. Six in 10 women who get care at a family planning center, including three out of four who are poor, consider the center to be their usual source of health care, according to the report.”
I’m still at odds with the whole thing – I wouldn’t give my teenage daughter contraceptives because that would give her the okay to have sex – then why would I pay to have other minors to have sex? Why would I pay for anyone to have premarital sex? Besides all of the obvious wrong in it, it’s also a SIN – plain and simple.
Teach and preach abstinence.
