TWO FACTS – OR SOMETIMES YOU REALLY DO HAVE TO STATE THE OBVIOUS!

FACT ONE: Here is a shock: both the pro- choice and anti-choice groups arguing about abortion have the same ultimate goal: no more abortions. Nobody wakes up and says: “Gee I would like to go through possible community humiliation and harassment to spend money I cannot spare to have a procedure that at best is just painful”.

 

FACT TWO: Abortions are a direct result of an unwanted pregnancy. One way to avoid that is not to have sex, and as we found out yesterday, for most that is simply not going to happen. Nor should it if we want to continue as a human race. The other way is through contraception.

 

So if we all can agree that no abortions are a good goal – how about a way to get there? Ever since we started to reproduce there have been forms of contraception. In fact this blog is named for a 3,500 year old document on contraception.   There are now a number of pre- and post-sexual intercourse forms of contraception and a recent blog post by Brewster Kahle puts it succinctly: http://brewster.kahle.org/2017/07/09/family-planning-is-now-be-easier-on-women-plan-c-pills-telemedicine-internet/#comment-199560

 

Now it is just a matter of telling people what their options are – and that is up to you!
