Study: Want fewer abortions? Instead of oppressing women, try keeping it safe and legal, for starters.

Induced abortion: incidence and trends worldwide from 1995 to 2008 : The Lancet:
Worldwide, 49% of abortions were unsafe in 2008, compared to 44% in 1995. About one in five pregnancies ended in abortion in 2008. The abortion rate was lower in subregions where more women live under liberal abortion laws.
Planned parenthood (not to mention Planned Parenthood), is a good thing. Secular education and universal healthcare will lead to more happy, healthy households than all the patriarchal religious indoctrination in the world. If the studies and statistics that demonstrate and measure these simple truths aren't convincing, if -- like ol' W. -- you think with your gut, doesn't even your gut tell you prohibition never works?
