Filed under: PolitikTech Talk

Roads Are Shizzy

That is such a sad number.

Seriously: according to a new study, road congestion wastes 1.9 billion gallons of gas.

To put that in perspective, we pay about $4 per gallon for gasoline in this country, and we're wasting 1.9 billion gallons of it annually in traffic jams.

So. Gross.

Not only that, but

Abortion Is No Longer On The Decline, Unsafe Abortions On The Rise

Filed under: Health

Abortion Rates Stop

We're not here to talk about ethics, just numbers.

Abortion was on the decline for a while, but it looks like that number has stalled. Alarmingly, unsafe abortions are now on the rise — and putting women's lives at risk!

Between 1995 and 2003 there was a decline, which has since slowed to a halt, and it's coinciding with a slowdown in contraceptive uptake:

"This plateau coincides with a slowdown in contraceptive uptake. And without greater investment in quality family planning services, we can expect this trend to persist. We are also seeing a growing proportion of abortions occurring in developing countries where the procedure is often clandestine and unsafe. "

Here are the numbers:

Between 1995 and 2003, the abortion rate per 1,000 women of childbearing age (15 to 44 years) worldwide dropped from 35 to 29. This new study found that in 2008 the global abortion rate was 28 per 1,000, virtually unchanged from 2003's level.

As long as there isn't a rise in abortion, we feel like that's still a good thing. It might not be as good as a decline — even not morally speaking, it means that people are being more responsible and safer with their sexual activity!

We're totally alarmed by the unsafe abortions though, and we're not sure how to combat that.
