    Christina commented on the post, Abortion

    HI Liv! In my article, I researched this relationship between reducing abortion rates and restrictions to abortions. I found that contrary to what some may believe, restricting access to abortion does not reduce abortion rates. Instead, I found that what does reduce abortion rates is increased access to contraception, expanded sex education to…Read More

    Christina commented on the post, The State Of Sex-Ed

    Wesley, we both researched a similar topics, but covered different sides of it. While I looked at how to reduce abortion rates, you researched how to reduce teen abortion rates. It was interesting to see that improving sex education was a solution to both of our questions. Have you considered increased access to contraceptives as a way to reduce…Read More

  • Wow. The statistic, “That is enough for 34 pills per resident for the entire county,” really made me realize how widespread and significant this problem is. Being able to visualize the amount of pills each person would have drives home the fact that there are too many pills being distributed.

    • Christina, this is such an important topic in this day and age! Thank you for speaking on it by creating a well-educated statement. I whole-heartedly agree with your proposed solution and think it’s a full-proof plan. This article illustrates the methodology of a solution similar to yours and is very good at explaining its intent: https://medicine.wustl.edu/news/access-to-free-birth-control-reduces-abortion-rates/. Thank you for your post, I’m glad someone notices the parts where we are failing the female population of our country and isn’t stubborn enough to see there are other ways of figuring out the problem.

    • Such an important healthcare topic. I wonder how much politics are impeding or supporting solutions to more thorough sexual education and access, given today’s political climate.

    • I found your article very informative. I believe that, unfortunately, this is a rising issue in our society. I like your approach to provide a solution. Even though contraceptions may not be the best option, it is definitely one that I see making improvements to the numbers.

  • Thank you for covering this topic as it is underreported. I knew about this issue, but after reading your article, I understand more about what is going on and why.

  • I like how this article has a view from both sides of the story. I agree that more gun control would lead to less accidental deaths, as well as suicide. I wrote about a similar topic: Does Having a Gun in the Home Make You Safer?
