I've seen what may be called shot gun weddings.

How much of a right does a woman/girl, or man/boy have a choice of marriage when there is an unplanned pregnancy?

Don't blame the "Global Gag Rule" about birth control on Trump. He and the followers who prey to him are following the band of his predecessors.

GWB banned condom supplies  (in-spite of the Aids epidemic)....

The Bush administration's ban on funds to family planning clinics which offer abortion counselling is adversely affecting the supply of condoms to countries hit by HIV/Aids, it was claimed yesterday....

...Amy Coen, president of Population Action International, the lead sponsor of the study said: "The policy significantly reduces access to vital family planning and health-related services for some of the world's poorest women and weakens vital HIV/Aids prevention efforts." The rule was "another example of how the Bush administration is allowing political ideology to trump science"....

...The policy was introduced by Ronald Reagan, thrown out by Bill Clinton and reinstated on George Bush's second day in office.

Family planning groups say the policy is damaging the cause that Mr Bush has espoused in a bid to show the compassionate side of his administration, that of HIV/Aids.

USAid is the most important single donor of condoms to the developing world, procuring and delivering more than a third of all donated supplies, worth about $75m a year.

The report said that by 2002, the policy had ended shipments of USAid-donated condoms to 16 developing countries whose family planning associations are affiliated to the International Planned Parenthood Federation and who refused to sign the pledge. They include Swaziland, which has one of the highest HIV rates in the world, Burundi, Chad, Gambia and Mauritius.

USAid's condom supplies to a further 13 countries have been cut because the main, although not the only, family planning organisation will not sign. They include some with the worst HIV problems in Africa: Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Kenya bans Marie Stopes from offering abortion services

The authorities in Kenya have banned the international health organisation Marie Stopes from offering any form of abortion services.
The Medical Practitioners Board says it made the decision after investigating complaints that the group's adverts were promoting abortion.
Abortion is illegal in Kenya unless a mother's health is in danger.
Marie Stopes says it operates within the law, offering counselling services including post-abortion care.

The head of the government agency in charge of approving adverts, Alfred Mutua, welcomed the ban and accused the previous US government of causing moral decay in Kenya by promoting abortion.
Some Kenyans fear the ban could lead to a rise in unsafe back-street abortions.

A persons right to choose should be looked at through the understanding and history of the eugenics movement which was inherrently racisist and a matter of class structure.

Here's another article referencing previous information about abortion laws in the U.S. The surprising history of abortion in the United States

"...

So how did we get here?
With the help of Reagan, author of "When Abortion Was a Crime," and the nonprofit Our Bodies Ourselves, we set out to learn what abortion was like in America before 1973.
What we found was full of surprises.

The view from centuries ago

In the 18th century and until about 1880, abortions were allowed under common law and widely practiced. They were illegal only after "quickening," the highly subjective term used to describe when pregnant women could feel the fetus moving, Reagan said.
"At conception and the earliest stage of pregnancy, before quickening, no one believed that a human life existed; not even the Catholic Church took this view," Reagan wrote. "Rather, the popular ethic regarding abortion and common law were grounded in the female experience of their own bodies."
Though it is considered taboo in Christian traditions, until the mid-19th century, "the Catholic Church implicitly accepted early abortions prior to ensoulment," she explained. "Not until 1869, at about the same time that abortion became politicized in this country, did the church condemn abortion; in 1895, it condemned therapeutic abortion," meaning procedures to save a woman's life.
Abortions would become criminalized by 1880, except when necessary to save a woman's life, not at the urging of social or religious conservatives but under pressure from the medical establishment -- and the very organization that today speaks out in support of abortion access, Reagan explained...."
