I don't think there should be a law, but I think people should be responsible enough to realize the risks before they do it and accept the result if they're going to have sex.
Abortion IS a way of being responsible. Period.
Also, as has already been pointed out, condoms (what you are calling 'birth control') are only 99% effective (sic) when used correctly, which they are *often* not.
