“In other words, if you outlaw abortion and limit contraception, you get more abortions, because more women who don’t want to have babies get pregnant. And when women who don’t want to have babies get pregnant, they find ways to get abortions, whether you like it or not. The way to get fewer abortions is to provide contraception—and to teach people to use it diligently, which is a moral project, not just a technical one. That way, fewer women who don’t want to have babies get pregnant. And the abortion rate goes down.”—What Reduces Abortion Rates? (via vaginastuff)

Luckily our professor went to the store while he was showing a video and bought some. He made the class lively when he was demonstrating the difference between narrowcasting and broadcasting. When narrowcasting, he asked a question and the few who said yes received a mini Snickers. Then to show how broadcasting is for everyone he threw a handful of mini Snickers very hard and the ceiling and they fell onto us, our desks and the floor.
