ABORTION-CONTRACEPTION CONNECTION – ABORTION INDUSTRY COMMENTS
Pro-abortion Alan Guttmacher Institute has repeatedly reported on major surveys that show 56%-58% of all women having abortions were using contraception the month they became pregnant.
Alan Guttmacher [former President of Planned Parenthood] stated, "…when abortion is easily obtainable, contraception is neither actively nor diligently used…there would be no reward for the woman who practices contraception…Abortion on demand relieves the husband of all responsibility; he simply becomes a coital animal." [Rutgers Law Review 22, 1968]
Alan Guttmacher Institute researcher Stanley K. Henshaw: “Contraceptive users appear to have been more motivated to prevent births than were nonusers.”
Alan Guttmacher Institute researcher Stan E. Weed: “[F]or every 1000 teens between 15-19 years of age enrolled in family planning clinics, we can expect between 50 to 120 more pregnancies.”
Infamous “sexologist” Alfred Kinsey, 1955: “At the risk of being repetitious, I would remind the group that we have found the highest frequency of induced abortions in the groups which, in general, most frequently uses contraception.”
Sociologist Lionel Tiger, 1999: “With effective contraception controlled by women, there are still more abortions than ever…[C]ontraception causes abortion.”
National Survey of Family Growth- Contraceptive failure rates show 7% for the pill, 16% for the condom, 22% for the diaphragm, and 30% for spermicide. Figures are even higher for unmarried people.
British Abortionist Judith Bury, Brook Advisory Centres, 1981: “…women…have come to request [abortions] when contraception fails. There is overwhelming evidence that, contrary to what you might expect, the provision [availability] of contraception leads to an increase in the abortion rate.” ["Sex Education for Bureaucrats," The Scotsman, 29June1981]
Planned Parenthood's Frederick S. Jaffe, in Abortion Politics, admitted that "…even if everyone were to practice contraception, and use the most effective medically prescribed methods, there would still be a very large number of unwanted pregnancies."
"…even if women use 95 percent-effective contraception, seven out of 10 will eventually face an unwanted pregnancy," reported "The Successful Animal", Science 86.
Abortionist and international contraception promoter Malcolm Potts [former director of Planned Parenthood of England] 1976 (even as early as 1973) quoted in Sex and Social Engineering by Valerie Riches.– “As people turn to contraception, there will be a rise, not a fall, in the abortion rate…”.
In Abortion, he noted, "…those who use contraception are more likely than those who do not to resort to induced abortion…"
At another time he said, "No society has controlled its fertility…without recourse to a significant number of abortions." [Malcolm Potts, "Fertility Rights," The Guardian, 25April1979]
Notice how the same groups (e.g. Planned Parenthood, UNFPA, etc.) push both contraception and abortion. Even in the law, the two are connected; the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade abortion ruling had roots in the earlier Griswold v. Connecticut contraception case…
Albert Einstein is noted as having defined insanity as "doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result."
Contraception and abortion come from the same tree: the desire for sex without children.
UNFPA and the entire abortion industry endlessly pushes contaception to reduce the number of abortions. They should heed these candid comments from advocates of contraception and abortion…
