Obama approves free birth control for Women. This is a huge accomplishment for the Obama administration. Allowing the free distribution of birth control can lead to the decreasing numbers of pregnant teens. According to guttmacher.org, 69% of pregnancies within the Black communities are unintended.
Guttmacher.org states that “In the United States, the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women.”
Unplanned pregnancies occur because of multiple reasons. One purpose is that both men and women cannot afford a form of birth control, but are still choosing to engage in sexual activities.
Now birth control is more then affordable to women, it is free. The excuse of not being able to afford contraceptives is no longer valid. Birth control now being free to women the percentage of pregnant teens within the Black and Hispanic communities should begin to dwindle.
