Why can people not see that to avoid pregnancy if you don’t want if is to not have sex..? Is it that hard of a concept?
Because abstinence only education doesn’t work. People are always going to engage in sexual activity,…
This doesn’t even address the valid and real mental challenges that people face with a pregnancy. It’s no secret that every born person in the US is told, “your waist size matters.” Many people internalize that and are unable to separate that message simply because they are pregnant. They may be recovering from eating disorders, still in the throes of eating disorders, or suffering and struggling with any number of other body dysphoric disorders. The pregnancy could literally kill these people just from the shear torture of not being able to control their weight and waist size.
Some people find pregnancy physically disturbing. They can’t relate to the joys that others get from it. They feel out of control of their own body as another steals resources, forces organs out of place and deforms their skeleton. It can be horribly creepy to know this is happening from within. It is a terrifying experience for them. They cannot mentally handle the experience.
These people need to be able to deal with their bodies as it fits their needs. Their needs are NOT yours and never could be. They don’t need to have you judge them for having a mind created by God to deal with these problems in this way. They need compassion and acceptance and help to find a road that allows them to navigate the world without being needlessly physically and mentally tortured for nearly a year for your religious satisfaction.
If you can’t handle being pregnant, don’t get pregnant in the first place. That simple. You aren’t required to have sex. If you don’t think you can handle the possible outcome then don’t do it. Killing so you don’t “suffer” because all you wanted was temporary pleasure is debase and inhuman
That is what people use birth control for. But even birth control is only 99% effective with perfect use, and even the most perfect human is capable of forgetting medication once in a while.
So should a person suffering from a life long mental illness simply never have sex ever, even if they have a committed life partner, just to avoid offending your feelings for 5 minutes if an abortion is needed? Is lifelong abstinence truly the ONLY solution you can provide for a person or couple who lives in the US but do not have the means to handle a pregnancy? What kind of selfish thinking is that, to dictate how a stranger must conduct themselves in their own home just to keep your religious beliefs in tact. What kind of overly sensitive religion do you have, that you can’t stand to know that not every person can behave exactly as you wish for them?
My beliefs aren’t from a religious but a moral stand point. Also here’s a third option to not murder an innocent child. Cut the tubes. Never worry about pregnancy that way.
Doctors are incredibly unwilling to sterilize a person for any reason. They make ridiculous rules such as needing to wait until a certain age, needing to have a certain number of children, or having certain medical conditions involving reproductive organs. They rarely allow people to make their own choice regarding sterilization when it involves uterine organs, in fear that the person may change their mind later.
Wrong!! You have the right at ANY POINT to say fuck you do it anyway, or find another doctor. That’s no excuse. The pairing is the one with final say on any procedure, the doctor can only suggest
Actually, pinupdragonfly is totally correct. Many doctors will refuse to sterilize people, especially younger people who can get pregnant. I could walk into my doctor’s office tomorrow, tell her I never want kids, and she would probably not refer me to someone who would tie my tubes, just in case I change my mind later on.
Even so, tubal ligations are much riskier than say, a vasectomy. You really have no understanding of these kinds of things, do you?
Also, tubal ligation/implants are still NOT 100% effective, there is a possibility of the tubes reconnecting. Depending on the procedure, of 1000 people, 3-5 will become pregnant (data from the Planned Parenthood website). So, even if that person decides they never want children and cut the tubes there is STILL a risk of an unwanted pregnancy.
