Head of abortion chain: abortion is needed with contraception

Ann Furedi, is the head of a chain of abortion clinics in England called the British Pregnancy Advisory Service. They do 60,000 abortions each year. Furedi says that contraception will not replace abortion. Abortion is needed regardless of whether women use contraception, because contraception fails. She says:

“The answer to unsafe abortion is not contraception, it is safe abortion. When you encourage women to use contraception, you give them the sense that they can control their fertility – but if you do not provide safe abortion services when that contraception fails you are doing them a great disservice. Our data shows women cannot control their fertility through contraception alone, even when they are using some of the most effective methods. Family planning is contraception and abortion. Abortion is birth control that women need when their regular method lets them down.”
