    I thought marriage was the best form of birth control.

    Well you can substract 5-7 days from that since women do not ovulate during menses.
    Untrue; women can ovulate any time.
    True, it's so rare that one gets pregnant from having sex while menstruating that most of us just consider those days freebies, but that does not mean it's impossible.
    It can happen, and it does. It's not in fact safe to have unprotected sex while menstruating, or at any other time.
    Hell, you're not supposed to be ovulating while lactating, but guess how many of us here got pregnant while breastfeeding a baby, and ended up with Irish twins- me and at least two others that I know of.
    That's a high percentage, considering how few women there actually are on this forum.

    Those abstinence programs are only effective on wives.

    Besides the breastfeeding thing, you're assertion that it's untrue is misleading. It's extremely rare. The body just doesn't work that way.

    Would you rather dole out welfare payments for 18 years for the government to raise those kids?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    None?
    I don't think it's any big secret that having too many children causes poverty, and being in poverty makes people more likely to have too many children. That doesn't necessarily mean we have to "reduce the population" as you put it. I have no problem at all to opening up our nation to more immigration.

    It's a hell of a lot cheaper than paying for 18 years of welfare, food stamps, medicaid, and public education.

    Apparently people who cannot afford birth control but like to get it on every day of the month. In other words, partiers.

    This is where I'm coming at it too. I see it as a win/win situation for both sides of the isle, politically.

    Decrease pregnancies = Decreased abortions
    Decrease births of poor/uneducated = Decreased tax dollars being spent on those things you mentioned.

    In the long term it will help the economy, overall.


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
