Right on Jamison. A woman is raped every 6 seconds in our country alone. Outside of rape, woman should have that choice. Sex does not equal pregnancy, nor should it. It's called evolution. Other species who only use it for making babies don't use it to feel good. We do. That's the difference. Birth control fails all the time. The choice of having sex is only to have sex, not signing up for something one's not ready for.I'd like to see where you got your statistics showing that only 1% of abortion is due to rape and incest. I feel pretty certain that it is likely higher, and as far as I'm aware you don't have to give a reason for getting an abortion, so it's quite possible that the percentage would be higher if women reported the reasoning.
People may choose to have sex, but that doesn't mean they choose to get pregnant or are emotionally and physically ready for a 9 month pregnancy. There are women who have abortions who used methods of protection that failed. There are also teenagers who get abortions who were not made aware of proper ways to protect themselves. I'd be curious to see where you stood on teaching sexual education in schools. Because, to me at least, it seems irresponsible to tell someone that abortions are bad and to not have sex, when they know very well that teenagers are having sex. A better way to go about it is to teach sex-ed so they can at least know ways to protect themselves and have a better understanding of the various issues that go along with having sex.
Sexuality is a very healthy thing and should not be a punishment. Here's to choice!
