In my review of the literature on effective policies to reduce abortion, a few minor nuanced discrepancies have come up.

1. 1. Pro-Choicers think we should increase access to birth control

Combining several methods, such as the birth control pill and male condom, prevents the majority of unwanted pregnancies.

2. Pro-Lifers think we should increase Planned Parenthood protests


3. 2. Pro-Lifers want to improve and expand sex education

Study after study has demonstrated that better sex education reduces teenage pregnancy.

4. Pro-Lifers want to scare the shit out of you

Some school districts like in Mississippi even have pastors coming in to give an abstinence only education.

5. 3. Pro-Choices hope to amelioriate rape culture
