I was watching "Troubadores - singer songwriters" on BBC4 last night, about the music world based on California in the 60s & 70s.
They (well, the men at least) said how the arrival of the pill was a great time, until the arrival of AIDS.

This Guardian article similarly talks of the liberation of "millions of women".

That was then, this is now ... women are queueing up to reject the pill!

What's your take?

I did know a couple of girls when I was younger who didn't bother using any contraception using lame excuses like "lads dont like condoms" "my mum might find out" or even "I cant be bothered its too much hassle" (one of these girls had several abortions before the age of 18). However I do think that article is an exaggeration especially as its talking about women as old as late 20s, I'm pretty sure the majority of teenagers aren't that irresponsible either; most women I know who are sexually active are on birth control.

Does anyone think the fall in use of contraception is a factor contributing to the rise in abortions?

What other factors are there?

Can anyone explain why the UK has the highest rate in Europe among 15-19year olds? Name:  Ab rate 15-19.png

Is it just the city areas causing this and without out their high rate we would be comparable to our neighbours?
