Not that anything’s likely to convince them to take the duct tape off their mouths, but anyone inclined to listen to Bill Donohue and his ilk should take note of this study:

The number of abortions annually fell to under 42 million from 46 million between 1995 and 2003, with rates decreasing most significantly in Eastern Europe, said the report from the Guttmacher Institute and the World Health Organization.

The number of abortions fell most in developed countries where it is legal compared to poorer countries where it is largely banned and considered unsafe, the researchers said.

Western Europe had the lowest abortion rate in the world in 2003 at 12 per 1,000 women aged 15 to 44, the study said citing broad use of birth control methods as a reason. The rate was 17 for Northern Europe and 21 for North America.

  1. since we all know the cult of republicanism abortion haranguing has NOTHING to do with babies or life and EVERYTHING to do with controlling women, facts will have NO IMPACT on the “discussion” whatsoever.

  2. Not to be overly dim, or anything, but why on earth would youwant them to take the duct tape off their mouths? It’s not as if they have anything remotely intelligent, factual, or even sensible to say.
