Which is more effective at bringing down abortion rates: education in conjunction with low-cost contraception or picketing abortion clinics?

Cutting federal funding for planned parenthood (black genocide) would also work

You are utterly clueless and have entirely bought into your own propaganda.

Planned parenthoods services amount to about 3% even being abortion. The rest is things like cervical cancer screenings, maternal health, infection screenings..just women's health in general. And since the Hyde Amendment passed none of it's funding

Pays for women to have abortions, they pay up front from their own pockets. You'd mostly end up slashing women's healthcare, not so much abortion. Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If anything their reduced cost birth control prevents some

Both are not affective - people will do what they want - you can only try to educated some people... But will not guarantee they'll do the right thing...

No, education is significantly more effective, in that it is actually effective.

And useless cliches and empty platitudes should not be what we build policy from.

There will still be those women who will state it's their body, their right to have 10 kids and no job.

Are you suggesting that because some small minority will still choose to be irresponsible we should punish those who wish to make responsible decisions but do not otherwise have access to the tools?

You want to decrease abortions? Allow women access to contraceptives, good education, and job opportunities.

Especially if we shame people into never revealing they were ever pregnant. If it doesn't show up in statistics, then it never existed.

There is research on the effectiveness of available contraceptives and education, I found in world health organization data that countries with comprehensive sex Ed had lower unwanted pregnancy, std, and abortion rates. And teens started having sex
