Almost 1/4th of pregnancies end in abortion

If Dr. Levitt's numbers are correct, almost 1/4th of conceptions are dismissed by abortion.

In his posting yesterday on the decreasing number of abortions in the U.S., he says that abortions are at a thirty year low. Why should we care? Because the numbers are shocking. Think about it; we have four million births a year and 1.2 million abortions. Or in other words, 23 percent of conceptions end by abortion.

I'm not here to debate whether abortion is right or wrong. I'm simply amazed by the numbers. Almost 1/4 of pregnancies end in abortion.

What ever happen to the idea of wearing a condom? Who can't afford 75 cents at the gas station?

I'd like to point you at a particular entry on "Overheard in Minneapolis".

I'm sickened by the ignorance of those youth.

Have we come to the point where every problem is supposed to be solved by a pill?

E.g. sh*t I didn't do my homework last night. Good thing I have the "homework pill".
