Please take a statistics course and concentrate of probability. Okay so the pill is 98% effective.....<quoted text>
Lets try and look at this logically.
The Pill is over 98% effective. A condom is over 95% effective. Combine the two and the chances of an accidental pregnancy is infinitesimal.
So I don't really buy into the whole it was an accident thing.
When my wife and I decided we did not want anymore children but still wanted the chance to change our mind later we took appropriate steps to prevent it. She used the pill and a spermacide while I used a condom.
All I am saying is be responsible.
Nothing is as black and white as everyone would like us to think but my main problem with abortion is the cavalier attitude toward it taken by most. It is a very serious issue. There is a life being terminated.
that means out of 100 sexual intercourse events, there will be 2 failures.
Now stop and think how many sexual intercourse events there are in a population of 330 million. Even if we take 1/3 of that 330 million as sexually active, that's 110 million sexually active people, how many sexual intercourse events do you suppose occur. Even with a failure rate of 2% that's a lot of unwanted pregnancies. But not everyone uses the pill, and for other birth control methods the failure rate is even higher.
Then there is the always unplanned sexual intercourse event...with no protection
The statistic of 58% of women getting an abortion being married with children who were on birth control comes from the NIH.
as far as the cavalier attitude, how do you know that? Have you interviewed anyone getting an abortion? Do you know someone who has gotten an abortion?
Can you please provide you source for this information? Was there a survey that you can reference about the cavalier attitude?
Or as I suspect, you just made that up?
BTW, My parents wanted to stop at 5 children and used birth control. I have 6 brothers and sisters.
So much for birth control always working.
