Which came first…legalized abortion or contraception? Contraception, in 1960.
Abortion, legalized in 1973, may have been the goal, but it had to be justified. Get the people accustomed to contraception. Observe that it sometimes fails. Then point to the need for abortion.
One hundred years ago, most people would have gasped at the idea of contraception.
Today, the idea is so widely accepted that it’s even applied to wild horses.
A few years from now, you’ll hear complaints that it’s too expensive, too difficult to administer and doesn’t provide a lasting solution (to the wild horse ‘problem’). An argument will be made that ‘excess’ animals must be sterilized or euthanized.
At that point, our wild ones will be finished, and you can thank the PZP zealots, most of whom are women.
