"Author's Note: I made a serious error in reporting this column that undermines the conclusion I drew. I compared statistics on contraceptive use from a January 2011 Guttmacher Institute fact sheet to a year 2000 study on the same issue. However, I did not realize that the 2011 fact sheet derived its statistics from the year 2000 numbers, so my argument was not supported by the data. I am deeply sorry for the error, which invalidates my piece."
ProLife blogger Jill Stanek has a different take, with which I agree:
"Kirsten’s retraction was too sweeping. Her remaining conclusions, based on separate statistical data, remain sound. The facts remain that: 1) according to Guttmacher, 54% of aborting mothers are us...ing contraception at the time they became pregnant; 2) according to Guttmacher, women do not list “lack of access” as a reason for not using contraceptives; 3) statistics from Spain show that abortions more than doubled after contraceptive use went up; and 4) Planned Parenthood’s stated mission in population control." - http://www.jillstanek.com/

"Whatever you think of abortion rights, this [Planned Parenthood] is not the kind of organization that taxpayers should be funding." - Busting the Birth-Control Myth by Kirsten Powers.
This is really important, because Kirsten Powers is an ardent Liberal Democrat. She is a Liberal pundit on FOX News, where debates the Conservatives.
Be sure to read the whole article. It is a tremendous boost for the ProLife paradigm.
