Free Contraception Reduces abortion 71%
This result has actually long been known in Europe where they already have free or subsidized health care, but it should also be obvious to anyone with a brain, which automatically excludes right-wing religious zealots, that increasing the amount of free contraception will dramatically decrease abortions. Now a new study conducted with almost 10,000 women in St. Louis is showing that they have a 75% lower rate of abortions when they have access to free contraception under public health care plans like that just passed under the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare. This points to the absolute lie at the center of the Pro-lie movement, which is the ridiculous assertion that these religious fanatics actually care about babies. Indeed, if they cared about ending abortions, this would be far more effective than anything that they have managed to do so far. Yet, it is guaranteed that they will oppose such a solution, just as they have already vehemently opposed Obamacare so far, despite the fact that it does more to reduce abortions than their entire lunatic movement has in the last 40 years.
