    Default If one truly wants to cut down the number of abortions:

    Make birth control and HONEST sex ed available

    Maybe hold the men responsible for making women pregnant in some more substantial way than we do now.

    You could go to the extreme and make it a crime to father a child out of wedlock. We could improve our laws in regards to the father supporting the child and not automatically connect payment to visitation.

    I think the idea that a newborn needs to know both biological parents is a law made by men. I believe a child needs A stable home

    For some reason, those who oppose abortion also oppose birth control and sex eds. The very parents who yell the the parents should teach the children about sex are the very parents who don't.

    And, as asked by someone on another thread, why make exceptions for rape?
    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    John I've been saying chase the men responsible for years. But considering POTUS's behaviour towards women I reckon that possibility has receeded. And I doubt if the GOP, full of old white men, would ever countenance it. A bit to close to the bone…………..to coin a phrase.

    Where comprehensive sex education in schools is the norm, teen pregnancies and abortions are much fewer than in parts of the world where that is not the case. Very clear stats on that.

    The Y chromosome is Imperative. No hypothetical penalty is going to make the guy do his zipper back up.

    But what John says is practical.

    Then make the penalty something he would understand, financial in support of the child on threat of modification……….

    it's been proven that under Democratic administrations, Abortions go down. When Women feel secure in their health, wealth, and security, they have children. When they do not know if they will keep their job, the roof over their heads, or even if they can safely carry a child to term.. they either don't have kids at all, or abort them.

    Simply put, if you are worried about your own future and survival, are you going to subject a child to those same insecurities?

    But the poor seem to breed more than the rich, and those in developing countries all the more so. So I doubt this assertion.

    Bullspit.

    No very real penalty (being saddled with an unwanted child for 18-21 years) is going to make a gal keep her knees together, either.
