116. Unfortunately...
One of the ways to make abortion rare is by making birth control options widely known, and readily available. Abstinence does not work. The rhythm method does not work. Unless teenagers and adults are taught the medical facts about birth control, abortion will continue to be the only option that many women have. Unfortunately, the pseudo-religious-right which currently controls the GOP is extremely opposed to this idea.

Of course lack of birth control education and availability is only one part of why abortions occur.
Unfortunately, without a great deal of work, there will continue to be rape in this country.
Unfortunately, without a great deal of work, there will continue to be soul breaking poverty and social conditions in this country.
Unfortunately there will also continue to be medical conditions that do not allow a pregnancy to be brought to term.
