The state of Colorado has been offering free birth control to low-income women for over five years. The results?
Their teen birth rate dropped 40%.
According to the governor, “This initiative has saved Colorado millions of dollars. But more importantly, it has helped thousands of young Colorado women continue their education, pursue their professional goals and postpone pregnancy until they are ready to start a family.”
Even more interesting is that the teen abortion rate dropped 35% in the counties served by the program.
So can somebody explain to me why some groups that are trying to reduce abortion are also against all forms of contraception?
