FEMINISM - Here is some interesting statistics from the United States regarding abortion:
Black women are three times more likely to have an abortion and Hispanic women are twice as likely to have an abortion.
73% of women who have abortions are living below the poverty level (earning $9,570 or less per year).
75% of women who have abortion cite lack of money to raise a child as one of their reasons for having an abortion.
33% of all women who have abortions are between the age of 20 and 24.
So really, when you look at the statistics what you realize is that POVERTY, not rape, is the leading cause of abortions in the United States.
Shouldn't anti-abortionists be doing more to get rid of poverty? If we simply got rid of poverty the abortion rates would drop significantly.
Between 1990 and 1995 the abortion rate in the USA dropped 20%. Why? Because in 1990 we were in a recession. After Bill Clinton got into power he made some changes, the economy got really good and the abortion rate dropped significantly. Now thanks to George W. Bush being incompetent the American economy is in a new recession and Barack Obama has to help fix it. If Obama can get the economy back on track poverty and abortion rates will go down again.
But will anti-abortionists care or notice? If they spent half as much time and effort trying to get rid of poverty Americans wouldn't need so many abortions.
