Women on IUDs and LARCs more likely to have multiple abortions: new study
Upending years of widely accepted talking points from Planned Parenthood and the Obama administration, a study has found that post-abortive women who use long-acting contraceptives like the IUD or Depo-Provera are nearly twice as likely to have a repeat abortion than women who use no birth control at all.
