Hey bible thumper, please explain to me how “self-control” will ease the horrific cramps I experience when I don’t have my pill, the cramps that have made me vomit and pass out from the pain my body causes me. The cramps the render me incapable of working for 1 week of every month unless I take birth control pills.
I don’t know anyone stupid enough to rely solely on birth control pills to prevent pregnancy anyway, for that we have condoms. We use birth control pills to help the issues or female bodies have, we use them to control pain, hormones and the stream of blood that would otherwise rule our lives for 12 weeks every single year until Menopause.
How about you use your self control to stop spewing your uneducated views to the world. How about you use that self control of yours to help you put the bible you love to misinterpret, how about you put it down for 5 damn minutes and educate yourself on the workings of birth control and the female body.
I don’t understand how birth control and self-control are mutually exclusive. I always thought someone who was really good about using birth control (for contraceptive reasons) had really good self-control. They’re planning, they’re being careful, they’re cognizant of the consequences. I can appreciate that. Liberals aren’t saying people have to use birth control, they’re just saying it should be readily available to everyone. Aren’t more options always better? It’s like, no, I don’t drink every single type of liquor in my liquor store, but I’m really glad it’s there. Even if I never buy it. Same with banana flavored taffy. I hate that shit. I don’t know why anyone would like it. But I will fight to the death for your right to eat that nasty crap…just as long as you don’t make me eat it. See? Options.
P.S. “Conservative” states have the highest rates of teen (unplanned) pregnancy, so basically, they don’t know how to fix problems, only create them.
