Her Body, Her Choice?

I read an article in Cosmopolitan that stated “Pulling out” was the most used way in today’s world for birth control. It stated that women today would rather use that method than taking the pill or anything like that, because they didn’t want an “unknown substance” in their body. The article also stated that 1 in 5 women still become pregnant because you’re trusting your partner to “pull out” on time. This article really got me thinking. Isn’t it funny the “pull out” method is the number one form of birth control, yet women want to “control” their bodies and use abortion as a form of birth control. Please don’t throw out rape because that is a different circumstance. When you have the option for birth control, and you chose not to use it, you had “control” over your body. When you “trusted” your partner, you had control. If you are not sure how biology works, or what happens when a man and a woman decide to do the deed, then maybe you should not be doing it. There are so many forms of birth control, plus morning after pills if you still don’t feel so sure. But, killing a life because you were irresponsible should not be one of them. This argument is not about “controlling a woman’s body”. It’s about morals. In today’s world, no one wants to take responsibilities for their actions. They want a quick fix and be done, and that is sad. This is the area about abortion that is not talked about, this is the area about abortion “they” don’t want you to see. Instead, they blind us with “her body, her choice”. How is this new generation going to learn there are consequences to every action, when they are being taught to “we’ll just pretend it never happened”. When you are not being responsible with your actions, then want to scream “It’s my body, my choice”, you need to take a step back and look in the mirror.
I am a woman, I am married, and I have 2 children. My first child was not planned, but he is one of my biggest blessing in this world. My second child was planned, and she too is one of my biggest blessings. I am not planning on having anymore children, so we have taken precautions to keep that from happening. But, if I were to become pregnant again, well we will be a bigger family. Be reponsible.
