There was a bit of a political spat recently here in the United States over the provision of Birth Control and religious institutions. While this was over whether or not the religious institutions specifically would be required to provide this, debate naturally came up over the morals of birth control.
I'm wondering what you think about birth control. I know it's a bit of a sausage fest here so we can't get much from women on this, but still it is a topic I think that can be discussed if we were able to do it over abortion.
It is absolutely up to the individual whether or not they use birth control.
I find it more hilarious how the church squawked about it, and the government moved almost instantly. I mean they kicked their asses into gear over it. Say all you want about separation of church and state, but the two are in bed together and this was a perfect example.
It should be users choice. Quite simply.
Anything that prevents pregnancy is a form of birth control (condoms included), so for anyone who's saying they disagree with birth control; they're effectively saying that it's okay to have sex when your desired outcome is that of a child. Otherwise, you don't do it. :rolleyes:
The Catholic Church considers birth control a sin. The Catholics want you to abstain from sex as the only correct way to not have children. IIRC even masturbation is a sin.
IMHO it is up to the individuals involved.
A College campus in Pennsylvania recently started offering morning after birth control pills in a vending machine on campus. The vast majority of students polled said it was fine. The Schools Minister is about to have a cow and is trying to get it banned.
IMHO if there is any one place that should have birth control readily available its a college campus.
