""A fetus may be living but it does not have life. It has no friends, personality, experience, or life experiences.""

Oh gosh I DO send you sympathy! My mother is mentally ill- chronic depression and sever anxiety disorder. Even though she is under the care of a psychiatrist and takes medication, she still remains fragile. I know fr me, it is so hard to understand the disease and deal with at times. I try and I count my blessings that I did not inherit this, nor, so far, have any of my children exhibited symptoms. So whatever mental illness you are dealing with- my huge hugs to you as the "caretaker"- what a rough, rough road.

I'm not sure "most" is the correct word. "A lot" may be a better choice of words.

CONTRACEPTIVE USE

• Fifty-four percent of women who have abortions had used a contraceptive method (usually the condom or the pill) during the month they became pregnant. Among those women, 76% of pill users and 49% of condom users report having used their method inconsistently, while 13% of pill users and 14% of condom users report correct use.


• Forty-six percent of women who have abortions had not used a contraceptive method during the month they became pregnant. Of these women, 33% had perceived themselves to be at low risk for pregnancy, 32% had had concerns about contraceptive methods, 26% had had unexpected sex and 1% had been forced to have sex.


• Eight percent of women who have abortions have never used a method of birth control; nonuse is greatest among those who are young, poor, black, Hispanic or less educated.


• About half of unintended pregnancies occur among the 11% of women who are at risk for unintended pregnancy but are not using contraceptives. Most of these women have practiced contraception in the past.


clear indicator that a person does not want to conceive>

What about the 46% that chose not to use birth control?

There are studies that show that close to 1/2 of the women having an abortion did not use contraception during the month that they conceived.

<No, the only thing I consent to when I have sex is sex. Nothing more and nothing less. >

Does this theory apply to men as well? Many here believe that a man is consenting to the possibility of becoming a father.


<Birthing a child and then leaving it in the trash can is being irrerponsible, having an abortion is not.>

How many women birth a child and then leave it in the trash each year?


<Do you happen to have any proof of this? I don't believe that "most" abortions are due to someone not using any BC. >

There are studies that show that close to 1/2 of the women having an abortion did not use birth control during the month that they conceived.

So are you saying that in order to be living, you must have friends?
