  • Here’s more evidence that greater access to morning-after pills/emergency contraceptive doesn’t work the way pro-choice organizations have been telling us it will. A policy in England to hand out free morning-after pills to teenage girls at pharmacies didn’t lower the pregnancy rate and increased the rate of STDs:They found that pregnancy rates for girls aged under 16 remained the same while the rates of sexually transmitted diseases increased by 12% in those areas where the pill was available free from chemists.

    Here’s the abstract to the study.

  • An advice column in the Washington Post has a letter with a “grim end to a sordid triangle”:A few weeks ago, my husband told me he had an affair. He came clean only after finding out she was pregnant.

    Despite being devastated, I told him I’d be willing to try to work things out – for the sake of our 2 daughters, at least – if he persuaded her to have an abortion. He agreed and she had the abortion, although I suspect she agreed only because my husband lied to her and told her they’d have a future if she had the abortion. He says he has broken off all contact with her since she terminated the pregnancy.

    Now I’m disgusted with myself because I feel like it’s my fault she had the abortion, and I can’t get past the fact that my husband cheated on me. Sometimes I feel just worthless. Is there any hope?
