What you subsidize is what you’ll get more of–and the Federal Government’s push to get more pills into the hands of young girls to make sure that they don’t have to face the decision of whether or not to go to see the local abortionist is only going to increase promiscuity and the number of abortions. That’s my conclusion after reading John Jansen’s report at LifeSiteNews. Why? Because it’s already happened and is documented here. A 1998 “press release contained this comment from one Dr. Anita Nelson, an Ob/Gyn professor at UCLA”:
It is estimated that nearly 50 percent of all abortions and unintended pregnancies in this country could be avoided if women had access to emergency contraception.
“That’s no small prediction. And looking back, it’s turned out to be not simply wrong, but astoundingly wrong.”
Who decides these things? Are they stupid? Are they the same people who tout “science” when it suits their agenda, but ignore empirical evidence that a policy does not work? When you keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect to get different results, isn’t that insanity?
