Birth control being expensive is just an excuse. most birth control can be gotten free or low-cost. I have already posted links to sites that provide that in this thread.
And yet it is again on the woman to do it. Birth control is highly expensive. Especially for people with adverse drug reactions that need special ones. And the penalty for not being on it , is going to get really expensive thanks to a bunch of abusive frauds that are perpetuating a lie about saving lives.
Why does everyone want to keep using outlying examples? What you are describing is very rare.
Abortions are rare. So please keep going. https://www.statista.com/statistics/506 ... %20dollars
526 million spent on birth control in 2020https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/ss/ss7009a1.htm
For 2019, a total of 629,898 abortions were reported to CDC by 49 areas. Of these reporting areas, 48 submitted data every year for 2010–2019, thus providing the information necessary for consistently reporting trends. Among these 48 areas, for 2019, the abortion rate was 11.4 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years, and the abortion ratio was 195 abortions per 1,000 live births. From 2018 to 2019, the number of abortions increased 2%, the abortion rate increased 0.9%, and the abortion ratio increased 3%. Although the rate of reported abortions declined overall from 2010 to 2019, after reaching a historic low in 2017, the abortion rates increased overall between 2017 and 2019.https://www.compasscare.info/health-inf ... ion-costs/
According to the Guttmacher Institute, the average cost for a first-trimester abortion is in the US is $508 (anywhere between $75 and $25001). The median cost for a second-trimester abortion is $1,195. Later term abortion can cost $3,000 or more.
The specific cost of an abortion depends on the type of procedure and the size of the baby, which are based on gestational age. The price rises as pregnancy progresses. Price also varies by provider; clinics and private practice abortionists typically offer lower costs than hospitals.
Abortions are rare, and actually not much higher than miscarriages. Only 62% of pregnancies end in a live birth. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom/99fa ... stillbirth
And the real issue with these laws is that they are designed to overwhelmingly destory young single women's lives.
Pregnancy outcome differs markedly by marital status. The birth rate for married women is almost 10 times their abortion rate. For unmarried women, birth and abortion rates are nearly equal. However, in recent years unmarried women were increasingly more likely to give birth and less likely to have an induced abortion.
Overall, U.S. women are currently averaging 2.0 live births, 0.7 induced abortions, and 0.5 miscarriages and stillbirths, or a total of 3.2 pregnancies each, of which only 1.8 are wanted births – that is, “wanted” by the woman when the child was conceived.
