In countries where abortion is illegal, the abortion rates are just as high as they are in countries where abortion is legal. Countries that highly advocate and support the use of birth control have lower abortion rates and teen pregnancy rates. Not only does the US have the highest teen pregnancy rate out of all developed nations, but the majority of girls under the age of 16 have had 4 sex partners. RIGHT OR WRONG abortions WILL occur. It seems to me that the problem is education and PREVENTION. If you want people to stop having abortions, give them birth control. Do you support birth control and sex ed? Because if we're going to stereotype ideologies here, (Look, I can do it too), most ignorant republicans don't.
