Study Debunks Myth Abortion Needed to Space Children

Bradley Mattes   |   May 17, 2021

Pro-abortion activists claim abortion is essential to ensure healthy spacing of pregnancies.  A new peer-reviewed study shows this is a myth.  The study was published by the Journal of Primary Care and Community Health.  Charlotte Lozier Institute studied nearly five million Medicaid-eligible women who had at least one abortion.  It found out only one percent could’ve used abortion to space subsequent births.  The average amount of time between births, for both women who did and did not have an abortion, fell within the recommended guidelines of one-and-a-half to five years.  Plus, the women who did utilize abortion to space their children were more likely to have received contraceptive counseling.  So, their abortions didn’t likely result from a lack of contraception.
