The reasons why women have abortions are diverse and vary dramatically across the world. Some of the most common reasons are to postpone childbearing to a more suitable time or to focus energies and resources on existing children. Others include being unable to afford a child either in terms of the direct costs of raising a child or the loss of income while she is caring for the child, lack of support from the father, inability to afford additional children, desire to provide schooling for existing children, disruption of one's own education, relationship problems with their partner, a perception of being too young to have a child, unemployment, and not being willing to raise a child conceived as a result of rape or incest, among others. An additional factor is risk to maternal or fetal health, which was cited as the primary reason for abortion in over a third of cases in some countries and as a significant factor in only a single-digit percentage of abortions in other countries. An American study in 2002 concluded that about half of women having abortions were using a form of contraception at the time of becoming pregnant. Inconsistent use was reported by half of those using condoms and three-quarters of those using the birth-control pill; 42% of those using condoms reported failure through slipping or breakage. The Guttmacher Institute estimated that "most abortions in the United States are obtained by minority women" because minority women "have much higher rates of unintended pregnancy.

There is an obvious solution to this problem if the leadership of both parties would just step forward. But they don't.

The Most Extreme Abortion on Demand Bill Ever Seen

from The Gray Area:

For 49 years, the US Congress has donenothing to establish abortino as the law of the land. Instead supporters have stood only on a Supreme Court ruling, Roe v Wade.

Now, several states have taken actions to codify abortion within their law and state boundaries. One of them, Mississippi, is being legally challenged and that challenge has =made it all the way to the Supreme Court.

Pro-Abortion supporters on the left are so afraid the Supreme Court, because of its conservative majority, will overturn Roe v Wade that they are making a desperate effort to pass a bill in Congress immediately, prior to any Supreme Court decision.

On Monday, February 28, the Senate will vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act, H.R. 3755. This deceptively-named, extreme bill would impose abortion on demand nationwide at any stage of pregnancy through federal statute

The “Women’s Health Protection Act” would impose abortion on demand nationwide at any stage of pregnancy through federal statute. Immediately upon passage, the WHPA would invalidate state laws banning abortion at any stage of pregnancy, including laws that prohibit abortion based on race, sex, disability, or other characteristic.
