U.S. "Red States" have higher abortion rates than "Blue States".

I don't agree with all of the wording of the conclusions in this post, but the data does show a clear difference in abortion rates between conservative-leaning states vs more progressive leaning ones.

How much more clear does it have to get before conservatives start to wise up to the idea that their draconian approaches to womens' health are ineffective and harmful?

Not surprising, given that healthier attitudes towards sexuality, invariably lead to wiser decisions being made.

Read "Spirit Level." It's not just abortion rates that red states dominate. Teen pregnancy, imprisonment, mental health, drug use, physical health and life expectancy, obesity, poor educational performance, spousal abuse and divorce are higher in red states too. I suppose that explains why they go to church so regularly.
