Abortion follows in the wake of contraception

There have been two important stories in recent days linking abortion and contraception. Firstly, a study of women in Spain has found that abortion rates and contraception rates rose in parallel between 1997 and 2007. Secondly, among a large number of British women whose contraceptive implants failed, some went on to have abortions. Both stories need to be examined closely regarding the data used and the individual circumstances involved, but both stories provide evidence of the close association between contraception and abortion. The provision of contraception not only fails to prevent unplanned pregnancies but results in unborn children being victimised to death as the unwelcome consequences of so-called contraceptive failure.
