WALSENBURG, Colo. — Over the past six years, Colorado has conducted one of the largest ever real-life experiments with long-acting birth control. If teenagers and poor women were offered free intrauterine devices and implants that prevent pregnancy for years, state officials asked, would those women choose them?

They did in a big way, and the results were startling. The birthrate for teenagers across the state plunged by 40 percent from 2009 to 2013, while their rate of abortions fell by 42 percent, according to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. There was a similar decline in births for another group particularly vulnerable to unplanned pregnancies: unmarried women under 25 who have not finished high school.

“Our demographer came into my office with a chart and said, ‘Greta, look at this, we’ve never seen this before,’ ” said Greta Klingler, the family planning supervisor for the public health department. “The numbers were plummeting.”

Makes sense that these devices work better to prevent teenage pregnancy than condoms.  The IUDs are always on.  Condoms are applied during the "tedious, sticky fumblings in the back seats of cars".

<How does an IUD work?

The IUD works by multiple mechanisms:

    A primary mechanism is currently believed to be the prevention of fertilization. The chemicals in the IUD are thought to change the composition of the natural secretions in the uterus, making it harder for the sperm to reach and fertilize the egg.
    The IUD also works by making it harder for an embryo to implant in the uterus.
    IUD's do not prevent ovulation. The LNG-IUS releases the synthetic hormone levonorgestrel, which may include mechanisms similar to progestin-only pills. However, even for hormone-treated IUD's, ovulation is not prevented in most cases.

Some folks might need to know what an Embryo is, because it is being 'making it harder to implant in the uterus, which is medical nice-speak for KILLING IT!

em·bry·o
ˈembrēˌō/
noun
noun: embryo; plural noun: embryos

    1.
    an unborn or unhatched offspring in the process of development.

So, if you have no issue with killing your offspring, an IUD is perfectly okay. If you have issue with killing your children, you might want to use an alternative method of birth control other than killing your offspring.

This is also similar to how regular birth control pills work at times as well, which can also affect the ability of a fertilized egg to attach properly. However, like the IUD, this is just one of the multiple ways it can have an effect on the process. However, in both cases the primary mechanism is currently believed to be the prevention of fertilization.

No.  The primary mechanism of regular birth control pills is to prevent ovulation.  When ovulation occurs anyway, and it sometimes does, there is a secondary mechanism and then a tertiary one at work.  The last, the tertiary, is considered the abortifacient mechanism.

Why would it?  I'm no fan of the Palin family.  Nor am I a detractor.

You are still a troll.
