Right. I didn't claim it did. I claimed that education reduces the odds of smoking or massive drinking for women - and indeed, for anyone (not just women.) Correct! It's just one way to reduce the incidence of those vices. You are catching on! Great! DING DING DING! And I support and applaud people who work to educate women (and society at large) to reduce the odds of unwanted pregnancy, the need for abortions, health-damaging amounts of drinking, and smoking. No need to ban smoking, drinking - or abortion. Glad you agree.
