There was a rather fascinating exchange in a tread in the Abortion forum:

Are you even against birth control when it's prescribed for medical reasons, such as to treat endometriosis?
If you're having sex...yes. Hormonal BC can act as an abortifacient.
What is your view on this?

Birth control pill.

Hell no, amongst other reasons, I need it to control chronic pain.

When I read BCP the first thing I thought about was big coolant passage heads. :lol: I don't think BCP should be outlawed.

No, I don't think the BCP should be outlawed.

Think about it....if it were, we'd have even MORE abortions/unwanted pregnancies.

Many women take it for reasons other than as a contraceptive....why should they suffer because certain religious groups don't advocate its use?

I mean, other than for religious reasons, I don't see why a woman wouldn't use it if she didn't want to get pregnant or if her doctor prescribed it for other reasons.....

The BCP is possibly my favorite invention after bread and air.

LOL! So why do you like it so much? I would love to know.

If it's because it helps prevent pregnancy, I understand, but never rely solely on a woman who says she's on birth control pills. I know plenty of men who have been told that, and it wasn't true.

LOL I'm female and I happen to agree with Right on this... it's is the next best invention, but in my case, it's so I don't have to suffer with ovarian cysts... which the only way to remove them is surgery. I'm quite content to take my pill a day... even though my tubes are tied, therefore pregnancy isn't an issue.

So "BCP" is birth control pill ..
Why do you think that all posters know what these off the wall acronyms mean ??
Acronyms are not used in proper discussions..

Is typing out "birth control pill" that difficult ??

No, these pills must not be "outlawed", who is even thinking about doing such a mean/unnecessary thing ???

If we were to make contraceptives illegal....there would be a huge increase in population within a few years. Society in this country would likely suffer greatly both economically, and emotionally as a result. Lets face it,,,,every warm blooded "Normal" human enjoys orgasm, and sex....if there was the likelyhood of a child from every sexual encounter.....we would all esplode from pent up desire.


I would have commited suicide in tenth grade.
