Should sex be regulated to help prevent abortions?

The right-wing wants to ban abortions in almost 100% of cases. Plenty of pro-lifers argue adoption over abortion. That's fine, but where's the money going to come from to fund orphanages and foster homes? You already don't want to pay to help grown, working adults get healthcare, even if their employers don't offer it, but you're willing to cough up what would probably be billions of dollars in room, board, education, healthcare and everything else that would go along with how many other new lives that have been orphaned? I call b. s. No taxpayer wants to pay all of that extra money.

That means that adoption would need to be nixed: birth parents would need to be required to raise the kid. One of the top reasons for abortion is because of financial strain. The argument is "it's your responsibility." If you really had an opportunity to get a job or other source of income that paid you substantially more, would you really turn it down? Especially if you already have a family to care for? Probably not. So forcing birth parents to keep an unexpected baby would probably result in a surge of welfare and public assistance claims.

So what can be done to help prevent the need for an abortion? No contraceptive is 100% effective all of the time (even vasectomies and tubal ligations have a slim chance of coming undone). Since we don't have any 100% foolproof contraceptive, should it be the government's job to regulate sex and make sure that no one has an unexpected pregnancy? Maybe even resort to eugenics based on income levels?
