Not A Surprise To Me

The fine folks at EU Referendum recommended the Scottish website "Freedom and Whiskey", where I found the headline Wider use of morning-after pill failing to cut abortions from The Scotsman.
IMPROVING access to the morning-after pill does not cut rates of pregnancy and abortion, a sexual health expert said yesterday.

In recent years the emergency pill has been made more widely available over the counter, while there has also been outrage over reports of it being handed out at school gates.

But Professor Anna Glasier, director of family planning at NHS Lothian, said although use of the morning-after pill had increased, abortions were also up.
The reason for this will remain a mystery to many in our educational institutions.
