Homeschoolers for Life recently asked us to publicize their first annual Pro-Life Essay Contest. We’re glad to do so. I am especially pleased that one of the three topics that Senior Writers (ages 15-17) can choose to address deals with the connection between abortion and contraception:

However, time has proven this premise to be false as the rise in use of artificial contraceptives in the 20th century was closely followed by an dramatic increase in abortions. Explore the connection between artificial contraception and abortion.
