I would like to reduce the number of abortions in Ohio and the U.S. However, focusing on its legal status is misguided. There have always been abortions, whether they’re legal or illegal.
The best way to prevent abortions is to prevent unplanned pregnancy. We can do this by providing accurate and comprehensive sex education to both young men and women. This will especially help reduce teen pregnancies.
The other major action we can take is to make sure that contraceptives are both widely available and affordable.
These two actions, taken together, will prevent far more abortions than focusing only on laws and court decisions.
