Universal health care = Less abortions? Not so much

Michael New smacks down a lame T.R. Reid column which claims passing universal health care would lower the abortion rate in the U.S.

I love this assertion from Reid.
This is not a coincidence. There's a direct connection between greater health coverage and lower abortion rates.
Reid then fails to provide any evidence of direct connection. It's like they don't know the difference between correlation and causation at the Washington Post.

It's funny how pro-choicers will claim various different liberal initiatives are the cause of lower abortion rates in other countries depending on what legislation they're pushing. Sometimes it's free contraceptives, sometimes it's more sex education and sometimes it's universal health care.
