mamawannabe: FYI, I used the pill for 6 years, went off it for 3 months to clear and regulate my body, and got pg. the first month of TTC, so I wouldn't worry about your fertility because you didn't get pg. while using b/c.

Yup . . .you can, I guess, but I think the abortion debate typically leaves out key factors . . .<br><br>
Why are there so many teen mothers in the U.S., esp. in comparison to other "developed" countries? (Not putting down teen moms, here, just pointing out that it can be a difficult path.)<br><br>
Why are there so many children and families that the current "systems" are failing-- (public schools, protective services, health care, welfare, etc.)?<br><br>
Why isn't it possible for single parents to easily make a reasonable income?<br><br>
Why does our pop culture portray this constant paradox . . .sex sells, but we better not talk about its consequences . . .<br><br>
I think these are the questions that people should be worried about answering.

I am very interested in the original question.<br><br>
For people who don't believe in birth control, are married couples supposed to abstain if they don't want to have children? Or are they supposed to not marry in the first place? Or what?

Just MHO but this doesn't seem to have much to do with fertility. Just can't be in activism anymore...<br><br>
As a PP said it's a matter of moral beliefs. I'm still trying to figure out how someone can be morally opposed to BC but not abortion.<br><br>
IMO, if you don't want children that's OK. You have every right to marry but you do not have the right to irresponsible sex and termination after that. There is no eason people can't abstain during fertile times, why are people acting like it's so hard or trying? To answer the question, yes if you are that opposed to BC and children you should abstain or be fixed!<br><br>
I'm pro-life, but I'm SO GLAD we have BC. I could fall into that religous crap about BC and God.. yada yada. I'm not going to do it! A life VS preventing Life.<br>
I'd rather see any woman use the pill or what have you than keep getting pregnant and aborting her baby.<br><br>
After this baby Dh is getting a vas. If that doesn't work we will be happy to accept that child as a gift that we were meant to have.<br><br>
Do you prochoicers think it's OK to have multiple abortions? If contraception failed, would you support the idea of having say, 1 per year for 10 years? More? As many times as you "fall" pregnant?<br><br>
BTW< I hate it when people "FALL" pregnant. WTH is that?

There are some people who are opposed to both birth control and abortion. Even periodic abstinence is opposed by some people, and doesn't always work anyway. The OP and I are wondering if people who hold these views expect that people who don't want children should abstain from sex altogether, even if they're married.<br><br>
As far as your other question, I'm pro-choice and I don't think abortion is okay. But I think passing laws to make it a crime is even worse.

People who are pro-choice are not necessarily pro-abortion, if that makes sense. There is a wide spectrum of what pro-choice people believe, just as there is with pro-lifers.

I think contraception that prevents pregnancy is okay... but any kind of contraception that prevents an already fertilized embryo from implanting or keeps an implanted embryo from being able to stay that way is abortion.<br><br>
I suppose I personally believe that I should be aware of my cycles and if I'm not willing to use preventative measures I should abstain. I'm not going to tell anyone what to do... but I do view any kind of abortion as murder. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

Um...err....should this thread be active considering Cynthia's wishes to not discuss abortion because of the potential to hurt members of this community?<br><br>
...But to answer I think the more aware of our bodies the better.<br><br>
