Cutting funding to family planning will not help the economy, but it will increase the abortion rate, pro-lifers, especially among the poor. (Three quarters of women cite financial factors as part of the reason they had an abortion.) It will just advance sexophobia and the misogynistic agenda hell-bent on punishing women for daring to have sex. Don’t be surprised if there increases in reports of “severe gastric ulcers” and higher sales of pennyroyal among the poor.
Like it or not, people will have sex. Telling people not to have sex will be about as effective at discouraging it as trying to lose weight by repealing the law of gravity.
