Contraceptives are still touted as a way to reduce abortion rates — in America and abroad. But even abortion advocates have admitted that the use of contraceptives makes possible the conditions that often result in abortion.

The medical director of Planned Parenthood Federation wrote in a 1991 letter to The Wall Street Journal:

“More than three million unplanned pregnancies occur each year to American women; two-thirds of these are due to contraceptive failure.”
