    I think You are being unrealistic.

    Couples are not going to stop having sex and most of the inexpensive birth control products are very unreliable.

    Poor couples need acess to long term effective birth control products so they do NOT become parents before they are ready to afford them.

    No, it won't because most of the women who are having these kids are not using birth control and wouldn't, free or otherwise! What, you want us to go around and forcibly put it in as well?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    They can have all the sex they want. THEY have to be responsible for the outcomes though, not me.

    In that case about half of those with unwanted pregnancies will chose abortions.

    What difference does it make? Let's encourage 100% of them to have abortions.

    Why does this poll make me think of schools handing out condoms to 12 year old girls?

    Free food leads to fewer people starving. Free housing leads to fewer people freezing. Free cars leads to less people walking.

    You know what would lead to even less abortions? Forced sterilization.

    I'm fine with abortions. It's not my business nor the business of the government to mandate what someone does with their child before it's born.

    Then why are you complaining? If they don't use it, then we, the taxpayers, aren't out any money, but if they do use it, then we still win because then they aren't having children they can't afford. Sounds win/win to me.
