1/3 of all pregnancies in Detroit end in abortion. One year had roughly 160000 pregnancies and 23000 ending in abortion. I guess this is what happens when you have a lot of opps babies and can't afford them.

Or perhaps, if you live in a hellhole you realize that you do not want to bring a child into that.

Sounds like they need some contraceptive help. Fortunately, The ACA will help people out.



Funding for family planning and contraceptives has decreased significantly in Michigan in recent years, from more than $5 million in 2006 to $692,300 in 2013, according to the state Department of Community Health. The number of clients receiving free family-planning assistance decreased by about 80,000 between 2006 and 2013.

Dr. Jay Berman, chief of gynecology at DMC Hutzel Hospital and division chief for gynecology at Wayne State University Medical School, said health reform will reduce cost barriers that have kept women, including many who have health insurance, from using long-acting reversible contraceptives — such as injections, intra-uterine devices (IUDs) and subdermal implants. These kinds ofcontraceptives, however, can be the most expensive option.

“Ultimately the (Affordable Care Act) is going to have an impact on the abortion rates,” Berman said. “We’re also promoting long-term reversible contraception, the implants in the woman’s arm, shots and IUDs, which are very suitable for a lot of these patients. There are three, five and 10-year IUDs that are available.”

Then they should take preventative measures. Hell get fixed if you realize you don't want to bring a child into that hellhole.

The right wing in this country is all about protecting the featus until it's born then after that your on your own. They don't want to help with healthcare headstart or food you but once you reach military age it's off to the armed services.

pretty sure it's free or you can find a way to get it paid for. At least, I think that's how it is up in Canada anyways

Self-pay was the source of payment for 95.4 percent of abortions reported

There's a LOT of information in the link. Including how the hospitals are not providing contraception because it's against their religion.

Another 1/3 end up being born into poverty. And the last 1/3 grow up to ask their parents, "why the hell did you never move out of this %$#*hole place."

People living in impoverished conditions don't have ready access to money to afford much of anything.
Whats the best free entertainment on earth? To expect people to make the right choice and go buy rubbers or have their tubes tied is reaching. They can't afford those things.

Sex is free however. So are babies.

You know what? A woman can have a baby every 18 months. A man can create one every 2 seconds. How many of his babies did he pay for?

WEAR CONDOMS OR CREATE. It ain't just a poverty or woman problem.

Bingo!

What most of us were thinking but you took the time to post it.
Dollars versus babies.

I think they are both pretty expensive in the long run.

That's not the point,
If the abortions are free there are no incentives to avoid pregnancy.
I will also tell you that if a mans &$@$ would fall off if the girl got pregnant, condom sales would skyrocket.
Talk all you want about a mans responsibility, he is still not the one with the baby. Blame Mother Nature.

Birth control fails. I got pregnant on the depo shot. However, most people don't even know how to use birth control properly. Birth control pills can be complicated. Even condoms need to be put on a certain way.
