They seem to have sat on the approval of my registration. And I had so many nice things to say.
Study: Men 'sabotage' birth controlTeenage girls and young women have been forced into becoming pregnant by abusive male partners who damage condoms or stop them taking birth control, according to research.A study at the University of California-Davis (UC-D) found that about 20% of young women had suffered "reproductive coercion", when a man used physical or sexual violence to make women have children.Questioning 1,300 English and Spanish-speaking women aged 16-29, researchers discovered 15% had experienced birth control sabotage, and 53% had received sexual or physical violence from a partner.Of these, 35% also reported birth control interference or reproductive coercion, and risk of unintended pregnancy doubled in such cases."What this study shows is that reproductive coercion likely explains why unintended pregnancies are far more common among abused women and teens," said Jay Silverman, study co-author and associate professor at the Harvard School of public health.Study leader Elizabeth Miller, from UC-D Children's Hospital, said it revealed "an under-recognised phenomenon where male partners actively attempt to promote pregnancy against the will of their female partners."The computerised survey took place at five reproductive health clinics in northern California between August 2008 and March 2009, and the findings were published in the journal Contraception.Copyright © Press Association 2010
"The five clinics surveyed were in impoverished neighborhoods with Latinas and African Americans comprising two-thirds of the respondents."

They email you a password to the email account you provided. You might want to start over and try again if there was no email from them after registering. I've been wondering where you were!
