    Many people, it seems, don't even support that being provided. . . not only do the pro-life people not want abortions. They also oppose providing free birthcontrol if the nature of the BC violates their pro-life views.
    Their pressures have led to some BC's being made largely unavailable- and have even permitted Pharmacies to choose not to fill various prescriptions.

    Unless we unhinder the availability of BC - which includes tibal ligation and visectomies BEFORE anyone parents a child - then our own government is literally making the vary class that everyone loathes.

    Our system is full of holes - and unless we're all one way or the other I feel it's just ridiculous to call people out on their final choice.

    You're talking about one very specific birth control option. RU 486, the abortion pill. I was referring to BC that prevents pregnancy in the first place. Other than Catholics, I know very few pro lifers that oppose contraception.
    Unless we unhinder the availability of BC - which includes tibal ligation and visectomies BEFORE anyone parents a child - then our own government is literally making the vary class that everyone loathes.

    Other than RU 486, I don't think the availability BC has been hindered at all.

    That is both disgusting and astounding.

    And it's not like birth control is some type of rationed item, is new to the market and is available in one form only.

    Sad... truly sad.

    So you would have preferred 49.5 million illegal abortions?

    I think we would have preffered 49.5 living people who weren't murdered by their mother's and "doctor."

    It's a complete break down in logic to think that everyone of those 49.5 mil would actually get an illegal abortion, but carry on.

    So if all those babies were born then what?

    Born to 49.5 million mothers who didn't want them - fathers who were likely not even around except for the fun part . . . who's going to raise them? How would their lives be?

    Like I always say - unless we fix *all those other problems* abortion is an accepted although unpleasant fact of life.

    Just like war, suicide and divorce.

    Society would most likely be more responsible, and certainly less callous.

    When life is disposable, has been reduced to a Bic lighter... it's sad commentary on society, and is destructive.

    Staggering.

    And it's actually 100 times that. Think of the children and grandchildren of those babies. One of them might have cured cancer.

    Think of your brothers and sisters. Think of your kids. Imagine how different your life had they all been aborted.

    So 200 years ago people were more responsible and less callous?

    Haha! If you know anything about history you'd know that's a steaming pile.
