Most Abortion Used for Birth Control

Bradley Mattes   |   January 26, 2023

It’s true that many women use abortion for birth control.

Yet the percentage of women who sacrifice their own children to maintain a lifestyle shocked even me.

An analysis of state abortion statistics by Charlotte Lozier Institute revealed an appalling, widespread practice of women using abortion as a means of birth control.

Not all states keep current statistics on abortion, so they looked at the eight states that do. These states account for approximately 13% of all abortions done.

Charlotte Lozier’s research looked at the reasons why women have abortions. What we normally call the “hard case exceptions” have been broken down like this:

  • Rape and incest, 0.3%
  • Risk to the woman’s life or a major bodily function, 0.2%
  • Other physical health concerns, 2.5%
  • Abnormality in the unborn baby, 1.3%

The total percentage of abortions involving the “hard cases” or “common exceptions” made up only 4.3% of all abortions done.

The remaining 95.7% fell under the category of “elective and unspecified reasons.”

Charlotte Lozier Institute concluded that over 95% of all abortions committed are done for birth control.

When the vast majority of women use abortion as a means of birth control, it is logical that they would experience more than one abortion during their reproductive years. Let’s look at the number of repeat abortions – that is, women having more than one abortion.

Pew Research released data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on abortions done in 2020, the latest data available. The information shows:

  • 58% of women had their first abortion
  • 24% had their second abortion
  • 10% experienced their third abortion
  • 8% had their fourth or more abortion

The human carnage is likely to worsen. Both New York and California have passed legislation mandating free abortions. And there’s more.

Recently New York City’s mayor Eric Adams announced the city would give free chemical abortion pills to accommodate the deaths of 10,000 unborn babies each year. Distribution sites include the Bronx, Brooklyn, Harlem and Queens.

The Department of Justice recently determined that it would allow the US Postal Service to mail the dangerous abortion pills into any state regardless of whether or not they prohibit the use of the pills.

We’re battling an organized, well-funded effort to use abortion as birth control and erase all stigma associated with the killing of our most vulnerable citizens.

An evil was unleashed on America with the reversal of Roe v. Wade. The forces against us are strong, but we will NOT give up. We will NOT back down. In the immediate wake of the Roe ruling in 1973, they told us to give up, that we couldn’t win – BUT WE DID!

Now our opponents are using that same tired old attempt of intimidation and fear. But as long as babies are brutally killed by abortion, as long as their parents are left in the devastating emotional wake of grief and shame, we will be there to help and restore, to turn back the culture of death and nurture a culture of life.

Thanks for standing with us, the babies, and most importantly, with God who created us all.

For the babies and their parents,
