The supporters of Initiated Measure 11 are on the airwaves, repeating the same baloney as always. Their new ad says "Measure 11 will reduce abortion from being used as birth control and will prevent 97 percent of abortions from ever occuring."
Haven't we covered this before? Why yes we have! Last October, Anna at DakotaWomen pointed out an international eight-year study that found "Women are just as likely to get an abortion in countries where it is outlawed as they are in countries where it is legal" [Maria Cheng, "Legal Status Doesn't Deter Abortion," AP via USA Today, 2007.10.11].
Oh well: Leslee Unruh and her groupies will keep reciting the same old lies; the rest of us will keep reciting the same old truths. Darn shame when reality keeps intruding on your worldview (and your business model), isn't it, Leslee?
