The Gloating Begins

The Guttmacher Institute is touting the newly re-found leadership role of the US in promoting reproductive rights around the world–including abortion (see my blog,  “Exporting Death”).

Maybe it’s just me, but…why does it seem that those who want to promote reproductive health and rights around the world don’t ever want to promote the one sure-fire way that someone won’t get an STD or get pregnant: abstinence? Why is it that they won’t teach that it’s okay to not have sex but they will teach that you should be able to indulge in complete sexual freedom despite potential consequences and get an abortion for any reason at any time  if you do get pregnant?
