Please tell everyone again how you hate being a woman. Your poor child and husband must be medicated in order to live with you. You do realize that God specifically designed women's bodies for the honor of bearing the fruit of mankind.
Please stop telling everyone (ever again) how you hate being confronted with women glorying in our independent thought, and sexual freedom. Your poor audience is in need of relief, from your obvious loathing of the idea that women are more than walking wombs and sperm depositories. You do know that God gave us 6 orifices other than our vaginas, and that we aren't obligated to stay pregnant just because you personally are incapable of getting that way...

Thanks.

So if you have a bad experience at a planned parenthood place, are you going to walk away from not only them, but declare abortion doesn't exsist?
You throw the baby out with the bath water in more ways then one :)
Actually, goofy, I never had a bad experience at a Planned Parenthood facility; all of them were very good ones. I went to Planned Parenthood quite often when I was 18+ and had just moved to a big city. I knew that if I chose to have sex at some point, I DIDN'T want to get pregnant, so I needed reliable contraception to PREVENT that unwanted outcome. They charged very LITTLE money for that contraception, and I was very grateful to get it. I would have had to pay MORE anywhere else.

The Planned Parenthood facility I went to was terrific. The medical staff were very knowledgable and helpful, they answered all my questions on preventing unwanted pregnancy and STD's, and finally set me up with the contraception that I felt would work best for me.

Thanks to Planned Parenthood and its wonderful staff, I never got stuck with an UNWANTED pregnancy, so for me, an abortion was never necessary.

I know this is hard for you to deal with, Tommydumdum, but women DON'T have to be mindless baby factories "for God and church." Motherhood is OPTIONAL, not required, ans NO woman has to become a mother unless she WANTS to do so.

Women can also decide for ourselves as individuals how many children EACH of us wants to have. For some of us, the number is two, one, or even ZERO. For me, the number is ONE, whine about that all you want.

As I said before, it's wonderful how much FREEDOM a woman has when she isn't mentally shackled to some archaic church dogma. Since I kicked the toxic baggage of catholicism to the curb over 20 years ago, I have the FREEDOM of making my own sexual and reproductive decisions, including the use of reliable contraception to AVOID unwanted pregnancy. For a regressive moron like you, that freedom for women must be sooooooooo hard to accept. Too bleeping bad.

Honor? He did no such thing. There was no mention of bearing children until after the tree of knowledge incident and then he told woman that he would greatly multiply thy sorrow and conception; in sorrow she will bring forth children. No honor in that.@@ It was a consequence of their actions, not a reward of honor.

Interesting take..I thought He planned on the birth thing but that it would not have been painful or difficult.

How could pushing anything weighing several pounds, through an opening normally the diameter of a strand of spaghetti, be anything other than 'painful' or 'difficult'? It's biology - which was standard long before there was even a concept of 'God'.

I have always, however, found it very interesting that the pain and difficulty of childbirth, is explained by men as being "deserved" by women, for having attempted to gain some knowledge - any knowledge.

Just can't let those pesky women use their God-given brains...and if they try, let's have God punish them with 'painful and difficult' childbirth.(And thank God that men don't have to do it.)

Lol hear you..and I don't have the answer..on the psin and birth thing but will reread .

My first thought would be like a very short process and instant delivery. It was meant to be a natural process. And He is God and Eden was perfection..I think procreation was always in thr plan

..I think Aldo that Adam got the weight of trying to make a living outside of Eden where it was easy..But the pain part. Well luckily there are good drugs now.....Daughter says hers was not pleasant...but for all three she was induced and had epidural...so was pain. Pressure and out in a few hours..
Lot easier then mind and mine just took one whole dsh..lot of women used to go for more!!!!

To be honest, I firmly believe that 'earning a living' wasn't even a concept until right around the time the Fertile Crescent became one. Up until then, tribes, and clans, rather than 'civilization' were the societal structures, and everyone lived communally, pretty much did what they loved, and benefitted equally from the 'work' of all - some hunted, some gathered, but everyone ate. Some were better at building dwellings, and some were better at finding caves...no one was expected to work a 12 hour day in 'exchange' for survival...and people just lived the best they could, damaging the food and water supply as little as possible. This whole 'civilization' thing isn't all it's cracked up to be - and IMO, that's what the whole 'religion = afterlife' business is about. People started needing to be convinced that this isn't all there is, so somebody invented "God" and "Heaven", and subsequently decided "Hell" would be helpful in providing punishment for those who didn't follow the new rules.

It's been that way ever since.

WELl. Obviously I don't agree about man creating God..and when I said Adam had to make s living....I meant what passed for that in the beginning..sorry if that W's not clear..

Hunt..grow food etc in a less than friendly environment...of course as more civilizatit became more complicated..THE THING is..both men and woman ate of the tree ..They now knew evil as well as the good life they had in Eden provided by God...and as with many things the civilizatiions were fraught with evil...sure they had more goods to trade etc..but amassing wealth beyond what was needed for life has always been a bane of men

AND OF COURSE YHEY FID INVENT gods...they turned their backs on the true God.

Exactly; in other words, it was a PUNISHMENT. Haven't we all seen words like "you had the sex, now deal with the consequences" many times from regressive anti-choicers? I know I have.

For backward-thinking morons like "ThePrince" and Knutter, any form of birth control is "bad" because it "allows women to escape the consequences of their actions" or something equally idiotic. Well, let them whine about BC all they want. If they're stupid enough to remain slaves to archaic church dogmas, fine. I'm very thankful to live in a country where I don't have to do the same.

Thank you! This assessment is 100% accurate, although we know the regressive anti-choice imbeciles will do their best to deny it.

Helping others is good. Harming others is evil. Why does man need the concept of "God" to know this? And why, oh WHY, does "God" need to punish his creation for being what he created, and USING the magnificent brains he created within us???

It's as if, had women refused to evolve, and remained ignorant as a lump of clay, that our biology would have somehow ceased to render childbirth painful, or difficult.

I just shake my head, and wonder at the obtuseness of it all.

Lol..NO woman PL or PC would ever deny that childhood is psi... Personslly wish men could have
every other one they sire. Would be one way to cut down on pregnancies.

I don't think women should be punished ....but the fact is. WE ARE THE ONES who have the burden of contraception..BUT I do believe that the men get a huge pass on responsibility because of being able to get the women to take care of it by doing away with their offspring..
IMHO
