The HC usually stops the body from releasing an egg from the ovary. HC also changes the cervical mucus to make it difficult for the sperm to find an egg. HC can also prevent pregnancy by making the lining of the womb inhospitable for implantation.
That sounds about right. A number of protesters failed to comprehend that clinics offered any services besides abortions. If you were a woman walking into a clinic, you were there to get an abortion.
I guess society thinks it's a lot easier to suck the products of conception down a cold steel sink. I weep for us all.
I don't see how you can escape this conclusion if you accept the existence of heaven and hell.
Even if I weren't now opposed to sex before marriage, even if I was looking at this all in a pragmatic sense, I don't see condoms-or any birth control method, really- as the answer to fewer abortions.
But for the record, I am not anti-birth control-as long as we are talking preventing sperm and egg meeting up.
40-60 percent (or higher, depending on your statistical sources) of naturally fertilized eggs will naturally fail to implant anyway, with no outside interference. Are we supposed to go into heavy mourning every month over the possibility that a widdle baby zygote might have been flushed with the tampons?
Are all three of us--you, verb, and I--from the Midwest? The movement took really tenacious hold there during the 80s.
To the rest of you-if a zygote isn't a person, then what is it?
All of us were that single-celled product of conception at one time. ALL of us. No exceptions.
But, whatever...I can't tell any of you what to do.
Most of us out here know the difference between barrier methods and abortifacient methods.
willingness-to-deceive that defines the movement
I absolutely believe that they do this with deception as a motivating factor. I do not believe it is because they want to save babies, not for one single minute. I do not understand why intelligent Christians and conservatives (I use the phrase without irony) do not see this.
Fourth, not every sperm or egg is sacred, but human reproduction should be treated with respect. Since every single one of us -to include Barack Obama-started out as a single celled fertilized egg, not as an interchangeable glop of cells but as a glop of cells that is the starting point to an individual human being with unique human potential and unique humans giftings, who are we to say which fertilized egg deserves to implant and which does not?
What if Obama's mother had decided she did not want to carry a child? Or for that matter, Bono's mom? Or Mathowie's? Or.....yours?
I'll leave that where it fell. You're not even coherent. Enjoy living your convient, self-assuring lie.
I love the idea that Obama and Bono are viewed somehow as liberal sacred cows.
