Every year, about fifty percent of all pregnancies are unintended. Almost half of these unplanned pregnancies, 1.3 million a year, are ended by abortion. That means that one in every four women has ended a child’s life. This is where I think the war on women should draw a line.

Contraception, can be conversed on both sides of the abortion spectrum, could be used before having sex. This could dramatically reduce the amount of unplanned pregnancies throughout the US. Sadly, the chance of getting pregnant unexpectedly goes up as you go further down the poverty chain. As it stands 83% Black, 90% Asian, 91% Hispanic, and 91% White women who are at risk of unintended pregnancy currently use a contraceptive
