Default Free Birth Control Pills impact

birth rates are down. This article attributes it to the free BCP programs. Hmmm.

Geez Louise I mean they could just practice safe sex couldn't they?

Having free condoms would be the way to go I think, therefore no pills, no side effects etc Just my feeling on the subject.

Sabby,

In a perfect world yes, but the reality - ha! You are a dreamer! In the heat of the moment poor decision making abounds.

I love that the abortion rate decreased so dramatically and for that reason alone I would support and give money for this to be implemented nation wide.

Abstinance is best but I agree with crunch; in the heat of the moment birth control is often the last thing they are thinking about. Glad the abortion rate is down though.
I am pretty sure I misspelled abstinence.

Very interesting read, though I do think that the point of the article seems to be the marked reduction in abortion and teenage birth rates among a very high risk population--women who have already had one abortion, not the birth rate as a whole, though I guess would expect that rate to decrease for these program participants as well. While I agree that these are very exciting results, I wonder what the results would be for a group more representative of the entire US population.

Also interesting to note that the majority of program participants were actively steered away OCPs and their likelihood of user error in favor of more "foolproof" methods of contraception, such as IUDs and implants.

Hair splitting aside, I just can't see how a reduction in unwanted pregnancy and or abortion rates is a bad thing.....no matter the population in question. Really, the more I think about this, the more I would like to see this deployed among a larger population of women....not just the high risk subset used in this program.
