A woman who uses the pill over her lifetime reproductive period……. March 29, 2012

……is almost assured of having at least one, and very likely two, “unintended” pregnancies, if she is sexually active throughout that approximately 30 year period.   So calculates Stacy at Accepting Abundance.  Using typical birth control failure rates as related on Wikipedia, Stacy calculates the failure rates over 1, 5, and 10 years:

The typical-use failure rate for the pill is 8%, in one year 8 out of 100 women using the pill in a typical way will get pregnant, but the numbers are much higher extrapolated over time. It’s even worse for condom use.

    # Women out of 100 that will get pregnant 1 or more times:
Birth Control Method Typical-Use Failure Rate 1 year 5 years 10 years
Pill 8 8 34 57
Condom 17 17 56 80


8 out of 100 women will have unintended pregnancies in one year, but 34 of those same 100 women will have unintended pregnancies in 5 years, and more than half in 10 years. Condom use has an even higher failure rate, so typical-use of condoms over 5 years actually makes a woman more likely to get pregnant than not. Over ten year’s time, it practically ensures unintended pregnancy. And what about teens? Teens are not as careful so the failure rates are higher.

    # Teens out of 100 that will get pregnant 1 or more times:
Birth Control Method Typical-Use Failure Rate     1 year 5 years 10 years
Pill 8.6 9 36 59
Condom 17.7 18 62 86

I found the data at Wikipedia fascinating.  Knowing how contentious this subject is, and how diligent the pro-aborts and pro-depravity crowd is regarding trumpeting the alleged “safety” and “assuredness” of contraception, I’m certain the probabilities listed are very favorable towards contraceptive use.  That is to say, the failure rates are at least as high as listed.  Having said that, only the surgical methods are really effective – surgical sterilization and implantation of birth control devices.  “User-administered” means of contraception are very unreliable – the diaphragm and condom fail about 15-20% of the time.  It’s almost assured one will have at least one “unintended” pregnancy over ten years using these popular methods, and for the pill, over a period of 15 years. 

And yet we are told by our cultural elites and the depraved Obama administration, that the only way to reduce unwanted pregnancies is to get more contraception out there!  That’s a lie, a total fabrication.  Getting more contraception “out there” has only one assured conclusion in this country today – more abortion.  No wonder Planned Barrenhood is so in favor of it.  Souls that are totally dependent on contraception and especially those who are fornicating outside of marriage and/or bad relationships, are going to be very likely to desire to abort when confronted with the biological consequences of their actions.  And another soul will be created only to be destroyed.

This data should be proclaimed far and wide.  It confirms what the Church has always said: that artificial contraception is not effective, that it leads to a huge panoply of societal ills, and it creates the environment in which abortion flourishes. 

Brave New World by Huxley should be required reading today, along with We by Yevgeny Zamyatin.   The handwriting was on the wall 100 years ago, and these men nailed it.

The statistics are mind-boggling when you look at how people treat contraceptives like they are 100%. When people say, “We’re stopping,” I usually ask them if that means that they are stopping having marital relations… That always goes over well. 🙂

Don’t forget that these “perfect use” rates include use during the infertile times of a woman’s cycle when a method failure doesn’t change the outcome. Take those numbers out and calculate the effectiveness rate. I doubt people would gamble in Las Vegas on *those* odds. It’s mind boggling to me, the mentality of the world today. Sex makes babies. Nothing short of 100% abstinence or complete removal of the reproductive organs stops that process.
