You are correct here Knit. Girls who were put on bc or used condoms were having sex "because" they felt protected. It was a false sense of security. Close gf's of mine had used that logic because some adult told them it. Three out of five got pregnant while four got an std. One is dying of cervical cancer as a result.

My gf said that the pill was a green light to have sex. Her logic to sleeping around was "im on the pill". ONE is still married while the others are divorced...failed relationships one after the other.

These girls btw...had sex education in school. We were one of the very first schools that offered it according to my knowledge.

Being against killing your developing child while in the womb equates to "redefining women as baby factory's" and makes us "appear sub-human"?.

Who'd of thunk it.

Oh...question....does that logic apply to ALL prolifers or just those that you don't like? Just never heard any of you proaborts say that to them.

<quoted text>They won't even admit that rates are dwindling...
They claim to be aghast at the numbers of women who decide they don't want to gestate, as if it was some sort of harbinger that NO women will want to. That's what SCPL men are really afraid of, you know: their OWN imagined reaction to a pregnancy, informs them that unless it is illegal to terminate one, no woman in her right mind will decide to carry a pregnancy to term.
Fearful, projecting little control freaks that they are, they ALWAYS fail to mention that the maternal mortality rate in the US is the 3rd highest in all the industrialized nations, or that our infant mortality rate is 27th in the WORLD....but the US has 4 million live births a year ANYWAY.
Pro-life my ass. These folks even bitch about Octomom - the POSTER CHILD for pro-life - because their precious tax dollars go to support all the LIFE she welcomed into her own.
Pro-life my ass. Human embryos in a petri dish? Feel free to just dispose of them, if they're not implanted in a walking-around woman....
They couldn't care any less about THAT life, if they were paid to. Wombs are WAY more fun to control than petri dishes.
Hypocrisy: it's what's for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner with the SCPL
Hmm

Ok first off most of us care because it is a life that is being aborted.

And I do not at all understand why the birth mortality is so high..you show up at a county hospital in labor they take you ..And Medicaid covers indigents..But then there a 're women I agree who don't seek prenatal care..and that is not on us.

Octomom is a disgrace because she had the babies to get on tv .

With no way to card for them..that's not on us either.

I am all for prevention...all babies wanted and many of us pro life are.

You cannot judge us all by the few who post here.

Don't paint eith too wide a brush please .

On the frozen embryos ...don't make so many and if you do. You are responsible to adopt them out ..so t h screening like a regular adoptions ...if you make them they are yours...Imo

You are blaming prolifers for all the world's ills.

We are not responsible for the women who will not use BC ...who have multiple abortions..they coukd prevent.

There is a dearth of respect for preborn life and it was not always there..Roe HAS changed the focus of the w omens movement and to the point they are now arguing what to do eith LIVE births who escape abortion.

There was a lot wrong eith society's view on unwed mothers..But we did not treat the baby's as medical waste..They were our children..like it or not.

And most of us welcomed BC as the way to control our families.

With this equality we wanted ..comes responsibility ..And in half these cases it's just nit there..because abortion is their birth control ...
And that's just not right.

Generally, before something can be perceived as 'making' sense, one first has to 'HAVE' sense.
You would appear not to qualify, so it's understandable you would fail to understand.

Having cleared that up, I was addressing No Relevance - if you felt my assertion regarding his level of humanity also applied to you, feel free to accept that as your lot.

In the second, it's not being opposed to "killing one's developing child while (it's) in the womb" that renders one sub-human in my opinion. Oppose abortion all you like, by not having an abortion. I'm so well with that, I'd love to come and pin a cookie on you. What defines No Relevance as 'sub-human'(IMO only, of course, since I can speak for no one else) is that he sees women as nothing more than sperm receptacles, and subsequently vessels for the unborn.

I suspect you feel the same, but you're sub-human because you really SUCK at being a full human.

Again, my opinion only...so far as I feel free to say.
Others might share it...anyone??

And absolutely yes!! on the sleeping well at night bit. I sleep from the time my head hits the pillow. Thanks for your concern.

Men getvthrcbreak eith abortion ..But also consider their babies they spread all over as a s sign of manhood

No job and six baby mamas ..crazy world ..if I had my way ..if not married and raising your kids..daddy woukd get snipped after 2

But then I don't run the world .

half these women who abort have irresponsible baby daddy's...

<quoted text> Rose, how can you suggest Ocean give advice to teenagers regarding sex when she CLEARLY believes abortion SHOULD be an option if that teenager gets pregnant?.
I don't understand you.
Not only that but God forbid fornication and so for you as a Christian to advise teenagers who are not married and just having sex for ALL the wrong reasons(including peer pressure, being forced by bf's or gf's, low self image which leads to only having sex to be loved by anyone) is very wrong.
Children need their parents or strangers even to talk to them about their self worth and value..not how to prevent pregnancy. THIS is the key.
Ummm did you actually read her sight ..I suggest you do before commenting really

The best advice I have seen on sex ed ...it starts out

BECAUSE I DID NOT HAVE SEX IN HIGH SCHOOL

This is knits comment to me yesterday .

And I have told the story of how I gave my son for adoption ..about 20 times on Here.

These are 2 post on the same subject ..

And I really do try ignoring her ..forgiving her..telling her to stop posting yo Me. But these take the cake.

Wow, you really judge don'tcha! Christ would not approve of artificial birth control, rose. Not at all. Being Christian is very hard, Christianity is not a feel good religion like you see on TBN. We have to teach our children that pre marital sex is wrong,not in case you have sex this is what you do. You are not stopping the bad behavior but welcoming it.

Rose, there used to be more abortions than there are now, relative to the population. That you were ignorant of the procedure when you got pregnant, is only indicative of your own lack of knowledge....not that of every woman in the country, even in the era during which you conceived. Abortion has literally been around since women figured out we could get that thing out of us before it got any bigger. Like around 65,000 years. Some women just don't want to be pregnant. Fact of life.

Gestation has always been dangerous...yet another fact of life. This is the main reason I believe abortion should be left up to the woman who is pregnant - her pregnancy doesn't threaten the life or health of anyone else....why should anyone else get to decide whether or not she risks gestation?

You've repeatedly posted what you think should be done with frozen IVF-generated embryos, but have you ever protested that procedure with the passion you show against abortion?

No.

Now, at the risk of sounding too much like persnebraskityhuskerknit, and telling you what you should or shouldn't do regarding your pro-life activism, I really must say that I don't care whether you protest IVF or not...but I will STILL point out hypocrisy, wherever, and whenever I see it.

Unless "Sterilization is now the most widely used form of contraception in the U.S." for catholics, what's your point? Nobody other than the RCC gives a damn what the pope thinks, and most people consider dominion over their own body a constitutional right.

When I was growing up, baby catholic boys were routinely circumcised; that's altering their physical make-up. How does that jibe?
persnickety wrote:
Pope Paul's final warning was that contraception would lead man to think that he had unlimited dominion over his own body. Sterilization is now the most widely used form of contraception in the U.S.; individuals are so convinced of their rights to control their own bodies that they do not hesitate to alter even their own physical make-up.
The desire for unlimited dominion over one's own body extends beyond contraception. The production of "test-tube babies" is another indication of the refusal to accept the body's limitations; so too are euthanasia and the use of organs transplanted from those who are "nearly" dead. We seek to adjust the body to our desires and timetables, rather than adjusting ourselves to its needs.

So, that happened..........
How would anyone know 2011 numbers? The last reporting period is 2009 and that was published Nov 2012.

You buy into all kinds of lies and spit at facts consistently... All while consistently doing your version of "killing the messenger".

Here rosey, read this Unlawful Birth Control Methods
14. Therefore We base Our words on the first principles of a human and Christian doctrine of marriage when We are obliged once more to declare that the direct interruption of the generative process already begun and, above all, all direct abortion, even for therapeutic reasons, are to be absolutely excluded as lawful means of regulating the number of children.(14) Equally to be condemned, as the magisterium of the Church has affirmed on many occasions, is direct sterilization, whether of the man or of the woman, whether permanent or temporary.(15)
Similarly excluded is any action which either before, at the moment of, or after sexual intercourse, is specifically intended to prevent procreation—whether as an end or as a means.(16)
Neither is it valid to argue, as a justification for sexual intercourse which is deliberately contraceptive, that a lesser evil is to be preferred to a greater one, or that such intercourse would merge with procreative acts of past and future to form a single entity, and so be qualified by exactly the same moral goodness as these. Though it is true that sometimes it is lawful to tolerate a lesser moral evil in order to avoid a greater evil or in order to promote a greater good," it is never lawful, even for the gravest reasons, to do evil that good may come of it (18)—in other words, to intend directly something which of its very nature contradicts the moral order, and which must therefore be judged unworthy of man, even though the intention is to protect or promote the welfare of an individual, of a family or of society in general. Consequently, it is a serious error to think that a whole married life of otherwise normal relations can justify sexual intercourse which is deliberately contraceptive and so intrinsically wrong.

NFP IS BIRTH Control
In the bible ..the only place fertility is mentioned is to be fruitful
Using NFP. which is fine by me..Is just as much against THAT INJUNCTION
stopping ovulation..

As I said, I don't have a preference as to what or how you protest. Far as I'm concerned, you're one of the most ACTUAL pro-life people here, if not THE most, because you walk the walk.

You're against abortion - therefore, you didn't have one.
You support the prevention of unwanted pregnancy.
You support the right to relinquish one's child for adoption.
You support educating, rather than demoralizing, the young.
(That you don't support Octomom's right to bear as much life as she cares to, is hypocritical...but that's my opinion. Not everyone shares it.)
We all vote our conscience - at least I hope so.
