Abortion availability

There are fewer and fewer clinics and hospitals where a woman can get an abortion these days. Which means that women have to travel further, and take more time out of their lives, to get an abortion. Or if they have no transportation, then they just have babies.

Something I don't see mentioned on websites or in discussions, but saw in a comment on a blog recently: even if you live close to a clinic, their services may be in such demand that you won't be able to get an appointment in time to get an abortion.

I wouldn't have a problem with this at all...if there was a corresponding rise in nation wide science based safe sex education and unhindered availability of contraceptives in schools and colleges to people of all ages.

agree with you 100% on the sex ed and the contraceptives, but babies sometimes happen anyway, so i'll maybe agree to the other after we've all evolved into seahorses.
