“When more than 9,000 women ages 14 to 45 in the St. Louis area were given no-cost contraception for three years, abortion rates dropped from two-thirds to three-quarters lower than the national rate, according to a new report by Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis researchers.”

Paging Sandra Fluke, paging Sandra Fluke. Rush Limbaugh, eating his foot on line one.

Maybe free contraceptives for poor women aren’t so expensive, after all.
