We can agree that women don’t get pregnant just by wishing.
Those who seek to reduce the number of U.S. abortions by speaking against legal abortion could accomplish even more if they would encourage men to never have sex with a woman unless she agrees in advance to continue any pregnancy that might result — even with use of birth control, as sometimes happens.
The man, of course, would agree to support an unborn child through birth and childhood to adulthood. Such agreements would help ensure that the experience is consensual and mutual as well.
There are lots of good ways to protect life with love and with forethought, and that’s why I support Planned Parenthood.
