My question is .. How do they prove that the contraceptive failed them?  Do they run tests ?
my guess is that the women state that they were on this or that form of contraception at the time they got pregnant.

I have known girls who made the same statement, but were lying to cover their asses ..They didn't want their parents to think they took the risk and went unprotected

yes i'm sure this happens often too
bottom line is though that whatever reason or however they found themselves in that situation the right to decide what to do about it belongs to the woman herself.
we can make any judgement we want based on our own beliefs and biases, but we are not the ones who are living it.

True, we are not the ones living it.. I wont ever tell anyone what to do with their own lives.. I may state an opinion, but that's as far as I would go...

I found the reason why there is such a high percentage of contraceptive failure .. It was on the same site I posted previously...

Why are so many women getting pregnant while using contraceptives?
  • Failure to follow the instructions for a given method of birth control exactly as directed is a key cause of contraceptive failure. If you're using birth control pills, taking them at exactly the same time every single day greatly reduces any chance of contraceptive failure and unplanned pregnancy. When using condoms as a contraceptive, it's imperative that they're used properly and in good condition. Women who use a diaphragm or cervical cap need to make sure that the cervix is completely covered before having sexual intercourse. IUD users need to check that the device is in place monthly.
  • Another cause of contraceptive failure occurs when contraceptives are used inconsistently. Forgetting to take just one birth control pill significantly raises your risk of becoming pregnant; forgetting to take more than one oral contraceptive in a month means that you should use an alternative contraceptive for the remainder of that menstrual cycle. Barrier methods such as condoms, cervical caps, and diaphragms have to be used during each and every act of sexual intercourse; forgetting just one time means you might become pregnant. Of course, natural family planning only works when practiced consistently and correctly.
  • Condoms that break or have even the smallest tear also often led to unplanned pregnancy. Causes of condom damage include improper use, inadequate use of a water-based lubricant, using condoms past the expiration date, improper storage. Jewelry, fingernails, and other objects may create tiny tears in condoms that render them ineffective. If condoms are your choice in contraception, make sure to use a vaginal spermicide to decrease your risk of unplanned pregnancy should condom damage occur.
  • Contraceptive failure may also happen in women taking certain drugs or herbs. If you're using oral contraceptives check with your doctor and / or pharmacist for any possible drug / herb interactions that may reduce the effectiveness of your birth control pill.
  • Believing that you are not in your fertile period is a huge mistake that can potentially lead to an unplanned pregnancy. There is no "safe time" of the month, according to researchers from the National Institute of Environmental Health, where they have found that the possibility of pregnancy may occur on almost any day of the month including during menstruation.
