And you wonder why Ohio makes fun of you...


I had to read that twice.

They’re actually considering going without federal funds so that they can refuse to give poor women certain birth control options.

Why not just try to outlaw the pill? Because then everybody would know what a backasswards smugnorant bunch of sanctimonious assles you are. Instead, you stick it to the poor to half-satisfy your own fucked up religious imperative.

Sometimes I think there’s hope for this area, but other times, I’m not so sure.

I’m not sure if everyone who has or has had an IUD realizes that it does not prevent conception, only implantation. You could, in theory, be aborting a fetus every month. Had I known that, I would not have had one implanted following the birth of my son. I was breastfeeding and consequently could not use the pill.

Hormone therapy, sterilization procedures, condoms, diaphrams all prevent conception either by preventing the release of the egg or forming a barriar between the sperm and the egg.

IMHO the use of IUD’s should be discontinued because the risks far outweigh the benefits and there are far safer, less messy and less painful methods of birth control.

I may be just a little prejudiced on this topic because I had an ectopic pregnancy as the direct result of the IUD and I very nearly died because of it. I was given a hysterectomy at the age of 22, (without my consent BTW) because of uncontrollable hemmorhaging from the ruptured tube.
