I am not a huge advocate of abortion. I’m not sure why some women seem to use it as a form of birth control, since it is a.) invasive, and b.) MUCH more expensive than simply taking the Pill. While some birth control pills are upwards of $50.00 even with insurance, my generic prescription is $5.00. That’s $60.00 a year invested, barely a fraction of the $350.00 to $900.00 reported cost of first trimester abortions. My opinion: you get one. After that, something is obviously meant to be.
That said, interesting concept of creating “Abortion Insurance.” Whether or not women plan for it, I think it sounds like a good idea. Think about it-homeowner’s insurance, renter’s insurance, and car insurance are all required by law. Although this issue is a little less tangible, why not treat it as a strong recommendation? Something like a vaccination or the Pill. Just in case. Because I know that if my “one time” comes, I’d rather have the knowledge that I’ll be debt free.
The nineteenth Duggar has arrived! Hopefully she continues to make progress. What I want to know is who has a house big enough to board the rest of the family while she’s still in the NICU? They certainly have some generous friends.
