Contraception and Abortion

The people who oppose abortion most vociferously also tend to be dubious about birth control, which has always bothered me. The US abortion rate has fallen to its lowest level since Roe v. Wade, and why? Better birth control.

It seems to me that if we had perfect birth control, there would be very few abortions. Right?

oh come now. you remember the "every sperm is sacred" song, right?

i find this position far more defensible (though equally flawed with its abortion-related bedmate) than the oceanic dichotomy between the belief that every life is sacred, but ... only if you're "like me".
