Abortion and Contraceptives: Have Contraceptives Increased or Decreased the Abortion Rate? Or Have They not Made a Difference?

Chris Daniel won the primary in Mississippi for the Republican nomination for the United States Senate. However, he did not receive 50% + 1 of the vote as required by law. Therefore, a run-off election will occur on June 24. He needs his campaign funds to be rebuilt. Donate to the Chris McDaniel Senate primary campaign in Mississippi:

“I Disproved The Theory Contraception Reduces Abortions, All They Could Do Was Call Me Names
by Michael New, Ph.D. | Washington, DC | | 6/20/14

The responses to my writing about the relationship between contraception and abortion never cease to disappoint me.

Back in 2010, I participated in an exchange in Public Discourse about the book Red Families v. Blue Families and the role contraception was playing in the U.S. abortion decline. In my article, I questioned the role of contraception, in part because abortion rates were declining faster in red states than in contraceptive friendly blue states. In his response, Northwestern University Law Professor Andrew Koppelman failed to engage my arguments or present data indicating that contraceptives were effective. Instead, he stated the argument is ‘silly’ and laments that it is ‘astoundingly stupid and tragic that this is what we are arguing about (Nothing new about this. The Left takes the position that if we say it and/or if we believe it, then it must be true! Therefore, there is no reason to debate it or present any facts supporting our position! We see the same attitude in relation to their man-made global warming myth! Anyone who disagrees with them is a denier!my addition).’

Yesterday in NRO (National Review Online—my addition), I had a blog post where I considered various factors that might be reducing the incidence of abortion. These include legislation, shifts in public opinion, reductions in teen sexual activity, and increased contraception use. For a variety of reasons, I have doubts that increases in contraception use have had much to with the long term abortion decline. First, the increase in contraception use predates the abortion rate decline by many years. Secondly, despite increases in contraception use, the unintended pregnancy rate has remained relatively stable over time, and has even increased slightly since the mid 1990s.

Yesterday in Salon, Katie McDonough said that I was ‘delusional’ because I have doubts about the role contraception has played in the abortion decline (A natural response by the Left. When they have nothing to support their position, they automatically resort to name calling! It is almost a reflex action! Almost like they are still in childhood! Maybe they are! He was lucky. He was not called racist, a hater, or even unscientific. He was just delusional! When they name call, you know you have hit a nerve and they have no response other than name-calling!my addition). McDonough did not raise questions about the accuracy of my data. She did not present additional data. She did not offer any additional arguments. Nope, she just called me a name. She spent the rest of the article attacking pro-life laws and other pro-life efforts to dissuade women from obtaining abortions (Drawing attention away from theoffendingdiscussion! Another tactic used by the Left! They are very predictable! .

I have a simple question for McDonough and others who think that contraception is responsible for America’s long-term abortion decline: If contraceptives are effective and contraceptive use has increased, why has the unintended-pregnancy rate gone up (I know a woman who has had at least two unintended pregnancies while using contraceptives. Both times the contraceptives came from Planned MURDERHOOD! That may tell you something in and of itself!my addition)? Again, statistics from both Guttmacher and the National Center for Health Statistics and both show the unintended-pregnancy rate has increased since the mid 1990s. Honestly, I am not expecting much of a response. It is unfortunate that instead of thoughtfully engaging the arguments that I put forward, McDonough and others simply choose to engage in childish name calling (What else can they do?my addition). Note: Dr. Michael New is a political science professor at the University of Michigan–Dearborn and holds a Ph.D. from Stanford University. He is a fellow at Witherspoon Institute in Princeton, New Jersey.

When the position of one side is that it is arightto MURDER your own unborn child, it is almost if not impossible to have a debate with them. Their primary position is inherently evil! And, of course, that is the position of Barack Hussein Obama! They have sold their souls in support of it! The Bible does not say: “Thou shalt not MURDER except for ….”

Impeach Barack Hussein Obama!
