Truly ironic. Sanger sounds more pro-life than someone who started Planned Parenthood.

“While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization. I also assert that the responsibility for these abortions and the illness, misery and deaths that come in their train lies at the door of a government whose authority has been stretched beyond the limits of the people’s intention and which, in its puritanical blindness, insists upon suffering and death from ignorance, rather than life and happiness from knowledge and prevention.”(MS,“Birth Control or Abortion?” Birth Control Review [Dec. 1918]: 3-4 [MSM S70:0809])

"Knowledge and prevention". That's what I've been talking about.

Odd that Margaret Sanger and I would have the same message.

Common sense - sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts.
Simple perception.
I don't know where you got this but the exact opposite is true, e.g. if you look down the railroad track and the rails seem to come together; do you perceive any reason why they don't? No. But common sense tells you that they don't.

The only "abortion" information she "gave out" in that publication was to say that though there are times when it is "justifiable", that preventing pregnancy will prevent abortions. Given the direct quote above, any reasonable person would conclude that by "justifiable", she meant to save the life of the woman.
I know. Odd, huh? On my soap box, I speak out about prevention as the only sure fire way to prevent abortions too.

She did say that if a woman chooses to have an abortion, she should put her mind to it in the first phases and get it done.

But we have the morning after pill now. Wonder why that's not being emphasized more by more women with a pulpit.

What point in telling people things they already know, or can learn easily if they wish?
And there WERE no gospels when Jesus supposedly lived.
God gave the Jews the Torah. Laws.

Maybe this will force Texas into this century. In my state, a pregnant teen has sole decision-making powers over her own body regardless of what her parents want. That should be how it is in more states. But the rights and responsibilities come with teens being able to make their own medical decisions at an early age -- which includes mental health such as counseling. So it's not all rainbows and sunshine when the same teen can refuse treatment and/or refuse pregnancy against the parents' wishes. It does go both ways when these become law.
Why does she have to be pregnant to have sole decision-making powers over her own body regardless of what her parents want? Why isn't she given tht ability when she isn't pregnant?

Personal perception is not the most reliable of sources for fact. Especially when one begins with a belief they want to see proven. Your "perception" of the 1914 publication you referred to in your previous post proves that it's not reliable.
I asked for your source, and you couldn't answer. WHERE does your "perception" come from? WHERE do your supposed "facts" come from?
Publications are not perceptions.

However, common sense needs no explanation by it's definition. Same as common knowledge.

It's connecting the dots. You just have to connect them all to see the picture or the picture is distorted.

It's emphasized. It's simply not regular contraception. It may have escaped your notice, but it's other name is Emergency Contraception. It's not mean for everyday.

By they way, the only people here who are against prevention are those Catholics who think it's a sin, and they tend to be on the anti-choice side.

Which can skew a person's perceptions. And it's an excellent point. You might say he's right on track.

Again, WHERE does your "perception" come from?

LOL, this little sidestep you're doing is not fooling anyone.

WHAT "dots" have you "connected" that form your "common sense" "perception"? What is your source?

Is there some reason you are reluctant to share with us what lead you to the conclusion you came to?

You're avoiding my question. Why?
Thought I did answer it - probably responsed to someone else.

Unless someone is in the process of seeking God or at a place in their life where they need God, no amount of witnessing will make them find him or need him. Especially in a fast-paced and high tech country like our own.

But there are many places in the world where the gospel is being heard for the first time through the work of missionaries.

There's a fascinating true story called 'End of the Spear'. Lives and hearts have been changed in even the most remote parts of the world.

Had to go back and see what we were initially talking about.

But I had said there's not a strong enough message being sent to young women to take precautions and the consequences of not doing so and the option of abortion has become the alternative to prevention.

So common sense would dictate if more women practiced prevention, abortion wouldn't need to be the alternative.
