Eleven Thousand Reasons Why Planned Parenthood Can’t Be Trusted

Recently we have been hearing about the majority of women who use birth control and how we need to pay for it. If so many women are using birth control why are so many getting abortions (for which we are also told we must pay)? None of it makes sense.

She evidentally hadn't figured out what caused the first one.

The only completely effective method of contraception is abstinance, which is always 100% effective ;-D)

The most effective birth control means under laboratory conditions, "The Pill," has an effectiveness of 99.5 to 99.9%.

This means that 1-5 of every 1000 sexually active women using the pill with laboratory carefulness will become pregnant every year.

Real-world effectiveness for "the Pill" is not as high as the laboratory effectiveness. And other contraceptive methods start lower and drop off even more.

For the past five years, every dawn has brought additional evidence of the fact that Planned Parenthood and its allies in the abortion industry cannot be trusted to tell the truth about the one thing they should know well – abortion. Just over five years ago, on April 18, 2007, the Supreme Court announced its opinion in Gonzales v. Carhart, holding that the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act was constitutional. Since then, we have lived in a world where partial-birth abortions have been illegal in the United States under federal law (and now many state laws).
