Umm...no, actually, they did not falsely correlate anything. And Ms. Powers did not do her homework either.

This question was not asked, and therefore there is no data. This does not mean it is a data point. It is not. Peruse through the multitude of Guttmacher stats, and you will see consistent results of 12 - 18% for women stating the reason for their unplanned pregnancy was lack of access to contraception.

Heck, it's from The Blaze.
Nothing to see here.

It's the media of conservative hatred.
What do you expect?
Several Blaze articles have been debunked recently.
Here's another that won't be difficult.

The Blaze linked to the article.

I don't know of any that have been debunked. How does one debunk an article just by linking to it?

Well, go ahead, we're all waiting for you to debunk it.

I'm sure you can find another thread of interest if you're tired of this one.

The link was provided as it points directly to the flaw in your linked article, and as you had apparently not read the actual Guttmacher January 2011 Fact Sheet yourself, it seemed you needed it spoon-fed to you. If you doubt the accuracy of the link, perhaps you could point out exactly where in the Guttmacher document it details access to contraception?

[quote=Jill61;18149450]That's not a very nice thing to say about Bristol Palin.




Bristol Palin didn't get an abortion.

What does she have to do with women who do?
