Just proof that it isn't a pro-life movement to these people, it's a chance to control women, control behaviour, and promote ignorance.

Gee, who would've thought that by restricting birth control, the abortion rate would go up?

And that violates my spiritually held beliefs. The relationship between husband and wife is but ONE way of celebrating that gift. One may CHOOSE to limit that expression to one person, but it's not a requirement.

Most people acknowledge that.

<< Abortifacient birth control is contrary to many pro-life oganizations' beliefs. However barrier methods that prevent conception from taking place are >>

Tough. They don't have to use it. But it['s not their call to support legislation that bans it for everyone else. IT's not contrary to others' beliefs- and for many, it is used for heath purposes.

<< However barrier methods that prevent conception from taking place are welcomed and encouraged. >>

Er, no. I, for one, became allergic to them- condoms, diaphragm and spermicides.

<< BUT again, we have to take responsibility and realize that even if we try to prevent conception from taking place, sometimes it still does.>>

Exactly! And for some, abortion is the means to which they respond to that consequence. It may not be your choice of action, but it's not your uterus, body, health or life- or business.

Actually, no, LOL. The three-fold mechanism by which hormonal forms of birth control work is one of my famous copy/paste files I keep for this forum. I guarantee no one who visited us with that misconception ever left hear without being disabused of that notion, LOL! I knew this in fact when they stepped up my low dose pill after a couple years to a higher dose when I was 19.

Adoption is a parenting choice. Abortion is a pregnancy choice. Adoption doesn't solve the problem of terminating an unwanted pregnancy. I for one, would never willingly gestate a z/e/f that I was not planning to raise. I'm not an incubator and I won't accept the risks involved in pregnancy and birth in that situation.

First off- I truly hope my kids don't go into marriage virgins- I think it's foolish to not know you are sexually compatible with a person before entering a covenant with them- and by that I don't mean trying it once- I mean a few years of sexual exploration, ups and downs. Unless both people have extremely low sex drives, there's no way to be certain your drives/libidos, preferences, proclivities etc. are good match.
Second, of COURSE they should know sex *can* equal a pregnancy. I told my son that in his early teens. I also told him if he caused a pregnancy it was the WOMAN'S choice as to how the course of it played out.

<< If one is not mature enough or stable enough to accept that simple fact of life, then yes, that person should NOT be having sex with anyone.>>

And mature, stable people can choose abortion anyway.

<<...but regardless of their situation, they must know that ANYTIME they have sex, they could have a resulting pregnancy.

"I don't think it has anything to do with maturity or stability. There are many, many couples who do not want to have kids."

ITA. There are also many people who are medically fragile and don't want the added risks, and/or have to take medications that are not safe for use during pregnancy.

I respectfully disagree with you on the statement

This issue is only about abortion.


Do you REALLY not understand the connection she's making here?

Actually, for many who are pro-life, including the Catholic Church, being prolife is also about contraception that kills the unborn (example, the Pill, Norplant, IUDs, etc.), and life after birth (ex. not executing prisoners), and treating all life with dignity.

Yeah, I understand the connection if you want to connect it that way. It still has nothing to do with the unborn. Most women would rather abort than adopt. And that is a shame. THere are plenty of families out there that will financially take care of adopted babies and who want to adopt american babies. But we as a society would rather kill our unborn than have them and give them up to adoption. Adoption is a good thing.

Abortion is a pregnancy issue.


Adoption is a parenting issue.


Yes, it would be wonderful if there were no abortions, but you can't justify forcing

Yes, I took birth control pills to prevent pregnancy. And when I was ready I stopped taking them and I have 4 children. Afterwards, my husband had a vasectomy.


Executing prisoners?

I'm almost 8 weeks pregnant right now. I feel HORRIBLE. I cant keep anything down, my whole body hurts, I am beyond exhausted. I also am mom to a 6 year old and have a career which has me WOH 40+ hours week. Why do you feel anyone should have to endure this against their will? Just to make some childless couple happy? Uh, no. This is a very wanted pregnancy, but I still feel like total a$$ and would never, ever do this for anyone else. I certainly dont expect anyone else too, either.
