Guttmacher Study Shows: Contraceptives Don’t Reduce Abortion Rate

As if we needed any more proof, yet another study illustrates that the pro-abortionist contention that more contraceptives will reduce abortion is a lie.

This one comes from the Guttmacher Institute, the propaganda arm of Planned Parenthood.

From LifeNews:

AGI, the research arm of Planned Parenthood, released a new report showing that abortions are done at higher rates on black, poor, and older women.

At the same time, it shows that young women who are in college or slightly older or younger obtain the highest number of abortions.

Wright contends this is a group of people who have the easiest access to contraception and the most knowledge about birth control because they grew up in a culture where it has been prevalent.

“The majority of women who are having abortions are those in their twenties,” Wright told OneNewsNow. “These are college career women. These are not women who lack access to contraception or lack knowledge of contraception.”

Even greater access to the “morning after” pill hasn’t slowed the abortion rate in Sweden:

Last month, government figures in Sweden showed the number of abortions has increased 17 percent from 2000 to 2007 despite higher sales of the morning after pill increasing during the same time period.

If contraceptives aren’t helping reduce abortions as pro-abortionists claim, then why push aggressive sex education and greater access to contraceptives?

Maybe it’s good for business–Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.

About three years ago, Consumer Reports revealed the results of their tests of 23 brands of condoms. Among the worst performing were Planned Parenthood brands such as “Lollipop,” “Assorted Colors,” and “Honeydew.”

Well, maybe they won’t keep someone from getting pregnant, but hey: Planned Parenthood is there for you to give you an abortion, eh?

Meanwhile, unborn children end up dead on the floor of abortion clinics, with the mental and emotional health of the women caught up in this propaganda machine down the tubes as well.

  1. LifeNews, your only source for your claims, has quite a few of its fundamental facts wrong.

    And the Guttmacher Institute has been an independent non-profit since 1977.

  2. Yes, the Guttmacher Institute has been “independent” for some time. Wink-wink. 😉

    The argument from pro-aborts and sexual anarchists is: we didn’t intend for the study to show that, therefore it didn’t show that.

    Funny thing about information: sometimes it reveals more than you want it to. 🙂
