Wherein I make everyone hate me (again).

Kate’s note:  I wrote this about a year ago and never got around to publishing it.  So here goes nothing…

A couple months ago I posted this and I was very sure was going to get me great hate email.  Except everyone who reads is far to nice, so here’s my 2nd attempt to stir the bee’s nest.

Two interesting stories I heard.  First, a study was done to see if making abortion illegal dropped the number of abortions performed.  It was found that it made no difference.  Even in states where abortion was illegal, women were still seeking and getting abortions.  The only difference that was found was more women died from unsafe abortions.  Making abortions illegal didn’t save any lives of babies, but it did kill women.

Second, another study found that when the birth control pill was made available to women there was an increase of the number of women who graduated from college.  By allowing women to choose if and when to bear children, it allowed them to advance in education and career.

Interesting, no?

    Really interesting; glad the pill made possible to many more women to have the chance to study. I just read your post about your new job and I remember I always told you that something much better was coming. Yes, the ones who thought they were destroying your career coulnd’t imagine the favor they were doing to you. Now you have a good environment to work in! Congratulations!
