QUESTION OF THE DAY -
IF NOT OUR LIFETIME!!
This thoughtful blogpost about oral contraceptives raises about the most compelling question seen in a long time.
If we are hearing so much about these products, but women still get pregnant while using them, why do people still insist on promoting them? And, why is the next "responsible choice" an abortion? Why do we justify or promote murder as the solution to product failure? (Great question!!)
The US Supreme Court knew what they were saying in the 1994 casePlanned Parenthood v. Casey,:
[F]or two decades of economic and social developments, people have organized intimate relationships and made choices that define their views of themselves and their places in society, in reliance on the availability of abortion in the event that contraception should fail. (505 US 833, 856)
