Double Standards

It is great news that New Mexico is one of the states showing the highest reduction in abortion.  This is due to science in family planning and education aimed at preventing  pregnancy.  There are many religious groups that try to claim their teachings are responsible.  These are the same groups that spend so much time denying science and forbidding education of young people on pregnancy prevention.

I am pretty sure that amount of young people having sex is about the same as it has always been.  But they are being smarter thanks to government and non profit group programs on family planning.  It is nice to see New Mexico showing progress.

How are you sure? Did you take a scientific poll? How do you know that religious education is not also part of the reduction?

All life is sacred.
