Two-thirds of women seeking abortions were using contraception

The claim that increasing contraception reduces abortion received a death blow this week from the UK’s biggest abortion provider. Figures from the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) reveal that a staggering two-thirds of women having an abortion were using a contraceptive at the time they conceived, reports LifeSiteNews.

“Ultimately women cannot control their fertility through contraception alone, and need accessible abortion services as a back-up for when their contraception lets them down,” said Ann Furedi, BPAS’ chief executive, in a press release.

BPAS looked at the contraceptive use of 156,751 women aged 15 and over visiting its clinics for an abortion between January 2011 and December 2013.

“Two thirds (66%) of women having an abortion at bpas reported using a form of contraception when they conceived. 40% of these say they were using the contraceptive pill, the most popular prescribed contraceptive in the UK,” the abortion organization stated in a report titled “Women trying hard to avoid unwanted pregnancy.”

Figures on condom use for preventing pregnancy were almost as dismal as those of the pill.

Over a third of women (35%), about 54,862, having an abortion at BPAS became pregnant while using condoms.

Furedi tried to downplay the failure behind contraception. “An unintended pregnancy is often a happy accident,” she said in a press release. "Contraception fails and sometimes we fail to use it properly. In our experience women are trying hard to avoid unwanted pregnancy, or sometimes vastly underestimate their own fertility.”

Furedi’s statement on abortion as a solution for failed contraception echoes those of Joyce Arthur, founder and executive director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, who admitted last year that “[m]ost abortions result from failed contraception.”
