Anti-choice nutters will mourn unfertilized eggs in bizarre birth control protests

An anti-choice extremist group will stages protests on the 50th anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision which legalized contraception.

The Pro-Life Wisconsin group sent out an email Tuesday to members promoting its annual “prayer vigils at local birth control centers” lamenting the June 7, 1965, ruling in the Griswold v. Connecticut case, reported Right Wing Watch.

The ruling struck down laws prohibiting married women from accessing birth control — which some Catholics and other religious conservatives believe cause abortions.

“The landmark Griswold decision paved the way for abortion on demand in America by legalizing contraception and defining the so-called ‘right to privacy’ upon which the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision was based,” the group said in its email.

Pro-Life Wisconsin, which brags that its opposition to “all forms of birth control” is more hardline than the state’s National Right to Life Committee, is pushing for a fetal “personhood” amendment to the Wisconsin constitution.

A recent study found that anti-choice laws do not cut abortion rates — but contraception does.

Abortion rates have dropped by more than 40 percent over the past 25 years — which represents an all-time low.

But abortion rates have remained fairly constant in developing countries, which are more likely to have outlawed abortion and restricted access to birth control, during that same period.

Abortion rates are highest in countries where abortion is completely banned or allowed only when the mother’s life is in danger.
