Abortion and birth control

25 June 2014, 15:16
My article yesterday about abortion was on the whole received fairly negatively. I should not refer to abortion as a form of birth control was a pretty important component of the discussion. If it's not a form of birth control what is it? Most abortions are done because the mother does not want to be pregnant or have the baby.
Abortion is on the whole the final birth control option of those who do not want a kid hanging round their necks and dragging them into the abyss of poverty because they can't afford to raise a kid, or see the challenge of raising a disabled kid as too much effort. Abortion is in effect a birth control method, I did not make it that, but that is what it is.
The next issue that raised it's head is the age old, If you don't want the kid don't do the deed. Abstinence is not birth control, It is folly to think that abstinence will ever be successful, here's why: Sex is glorious, It is the most fun you can have with the right partner. In fact if you see sex as anything but a boon for the mammals that do it for reasons other than procreation, you have a screw loose. When sex is made a taboo, and people try and prevent it from happening stuff happens, I grew up in the 70's and the 80's when sex was not talked about, The porn mags had stars covering the important bits and good kids never considered the deed. The church held sway and guess what teenage pregnancies happened. 
I recall my neighbour Oom Dickie had two luscious daughters that were never allowed to date or talk to boys, Their brother Dickie Junior was the exception. Oom Dickie went fishing one weekend and Tannie Marthie let the girls off the leash, About a month later to the great consternation of Oom Dickie there were two virgin pregnancies in the home.Abstinence does not work. My Dad always said the only sure form of birth control was a marble. If the girl kept it there between her knees and never dropped it there was no way she was going to get pregnant.
Condoms are 98% successful, The Pill is 97% successful, various other birth control methods have their own statistics, So the facts are that a burst condom can lead to pregnancy, The only solution to an unwanted pregnancy at that point is abortion. Abortion is just one of the options available in the birth control cycle. 
The real reason I wrote the last article was to focus on over population of our planet. Abortion is one of the tools we have along with sterilization to prevent a human catastrophe. Some thought my words were sick and I should have been aborted, Heck there you are my argument exactly, If we had both been aborted we would not be draining the finite resources earth has. 
I also added to this problem by having two children, but I don't see this as unreasonable, It's the stupid people like some in my family that have created 5 kids. Talking about sterilization, I had a vasectomy voluntarily to ensure that I didn't add more children to the mix. If you have had two kids and are male and don't have the snip, you are possibly stupid. If you are female and enjoy sex with multiple partners and have not had yourself a hysterectomy after the second, you are possibly just as stupid. For those of you wondering what changes after a vasectomy, here are the facts, My Bass voice became a contralto, I no longer enjoy sex and my equipment stopped working. Just kidding, Sex became even better because I don't have to worry about the receptacle of my seed being fertile.
Let's get back to the subject of Abortion though, One of the issues raised was the ladies suffering from mental problems because they aborted a baby. This is technically possible if they have been brainwashed into believing that abortion is murdering cute little babies, This as we know in the first trimester is utter bull manure, A zygote is not a baby, I repeat a zygote is not a baby. A baby has to be born before it can be considered human, before that it is a parasite draining nutrients from it's host allowing it to become something, much like maggots that take their nutrients from their host in order to become a fly. Maggots as we know are marginally more disgusting than babies.
If we did not infuse people with religious bollocks, They would not suffer the trauma of having aborted a baby. I know one such woman that had an abortion back in the day because she was not ready, She is now a mother of two beautiful boys, As far as I know the guilt of aborting is not in her lexicon because she doesn't have that crazy religious morality to contend with. I also know another that gave birth to a baby boy, put it up for adoption and every time she sees kids she looks hoping to see a face that may be familiar.
Talking about adoption, I know a couple that want to adopt, They have been jumping through all sorts of hoops to try and prove they are worthy, He has a health problem and has been deemed unworthy, yet should he poke some cheap tart and make her pregnant, there is nothing preventing him from being a Dad. Seems nuts to me. 
There are homes full of children that are not finding a loving home because you need to be totally healthy, have the means and the ability to provide a good home. Poor people cannot adopt, sick people cannot adopt, White people who want to adopt black babies are frowned upon, because the kid need to understand his culture which he will learn in a christian children's home right, but not from a loving couple desperate for a kid?  
In my opinion it is better to abort that zygote than subject the baby to hell that is the system.
