Richard Reeves, a co-author of the study, told the Atlantic: “I think that the evidence is . . . that it’s access to effective and safe forms of contraception and abortion” that will bring down unwanted-pregnancy rates among the poor.
In fact, it’s not that hard to get contraception; and the barriers have fallen dramatically in recent years.
Condoms are readily available. And, as of two years ago, almost all insurance policies — including the ObamaCare exchanges — cover the pill at no out-of-pocket cost.
And it’s not just the financial barriers that have come down. Women no longer have to get a pelvic exam to get a prescription for the pill, either.
Yet there’s no evidence of an increase in the use of the pill since these changes were enacted.
