Sarah Silverman recently found humor in sharing these rape prevention tips. It appears that, from her perspective, rape can be ended by simply training men to follow these simple tips.
What would Silverman say if we talked to women this way about abortion?
Since 1973, the United States has hosted more than 57 million abortions. The last yearly total was about 1.06 million per year. The average cost of a first-trimester abortion, according to Planned Parenthood, can be up to $1,500. Based on that data, we could not only save lives but save $1,590,000,000 a year in unnecessary expenses. All we need to do is follow these eight abortion prevention tips.
1. When encountering a man, consider evaluating whether he is worth spending your time and energy on before you have sex with him.
2. If you plan to have sex, use birth control.
3. Nothing says confident, decisive action like needing more than 20 weeks to decide on an abortion. You’re halfway there, just finish the job.
4. There are plenty of families who would happily take care of your child. If it is inconvenient for you to stop yourself from having an abortion, visit an adoption agency.
5. If you plan on having sex with someone who makes you consider annihilating your own offspring, don’t have sex with them.
6. Consider that even having an abortion requires planning. Apply that same proactive mindset a little earlier and you won’t have an abortion.
7. If you are about to have unprotected sex but don’t want to get pregnant, don’t have sex.
8. Don’t forget, honesty is the best policy. When going out on a date with a man, tell him straight up that you plan on aborting his child. If you don’t communicate your intentions, that man may take it as a sign you plan on having his baby.
Remember: by not following these tips you are contributing directly to a culture that spends approximately $1.5 billion a year on abortions. That’s more than Medicare spends on breast cancer treatment each year. That abortion money could be better spent treating cancer, performing heart transplants, or bringing babies into the world.
