New Study Confirms What Many Have Long Believed to Be True: Women Use Contraception to Better Achieve Their Life Goals.

Or: Guttmacher Institute does yet another study confirming that we could all save money on studies by just listening to women speak truth about their experiences.

Maude bless the Guttmacher Institute for doing this stuff. Guttmacher's a national treasure, and if I had Mitt Romney money, I would build a monument to their awesomeness in every state in the union.

It would be a giant, gold-plated ear, with the gold-plated forms of three women talking into it, and from the ear would extend two gold-plated hands, one taking notes on a gold-plated notepad, and the other eternally handing to passers-by a gold-plated press release reading "Study Finds Women's Voices Only Matter When Computed into Datapoints."

Often, not even then, of course. But I am profoundly grateful to the Guttmacher Institute in trying to amplify our stories by collating them.
