Choice sucks. Seriously. Choice is the worst.

Now before all the pro-abortion, Planned Parenthood enthusiasts, who are reading this blog for their daily dose of anger, start uncapping their markers to write signs like “My body, my choice” or (my absolute favorite and legitimately punny) “Republicans cannot defetus”…let me explain what I mean.

Studies: Birth Control, Contraception Don’t Cut Abortions

“Contraception reduces unintended pregnancies” has joined its fantastic make-believe friends “death with dignity,” the “efficacy” of embryonic stem cells, the “certainty” of man-made global warming, and the “positive” multiplier effect in the leftist vernacular. Hopeful that repetition supplants truth, choirs of liberal faithful are singing: Most importantly, broadening access to birth control will help reduce…
