Re:Emergency Contraceptives

You're not being responsible by using emergency contraceptives? That is by far the most moronic statement I have EVER heard!



Emergency contraceptives are meant to be used if you ARE using another type of contraceptive, such as a condom, and there is an accident, such as the condom breaking. If you were doing everything properly and RESPONSIBLY, there is still a chance of such a thing happening.



At which point, being that you are such a responsible person, you do the responsible thing -- use an emergency contraceptive. You thereby prevent ovulation, the same way regular birth control works. A pregnancy is PREVENTED. Very responsible!



And being that you're against abortion, wouldn't you say preventing abortions is a good thing? Then WHY ON EARTH are you against emergency contraceptives?
