everything you just listed could be easily avoidable by not having sex or sterilization.
it seems more proactive to me to spend energy as a society fixing the rapists, rather than allowing them to rape and just "fixing" the result of their act
mental implications? i would have thought they reviewed those as they took off their pants and climbed into bed. but of course not, that would be responsible
just because its written as law doesn't make it common or the least bit sensible.
i have no problem with a rape victim getting an abortion as that is a result of force. nothing else you've presented is a result of force, but a result of irresponsibility that could have easily been avoided had correct precautions been taken (IUD)
so your saying that so long as im qualified, i can strap down my girlfriend against her will and preform an abortion?
perhaps im suggesting a change in the laws would be a more proactive solution to this issue for society
but where i live planned parenthood seems to know people on a first name basis.
1. What is the likeleyhood of abstinence? sure a few religious types will do it but sex sells and unless we ban all things purtaining to sexual relations this will never happen.
2. Sterilization? That sounds familiar.. have you heard of Germany's eugenics program under the Third Reich?
And how do you suggest we find these people to "fix" Anyone could be a rapist (even you) and until they have committed such crimes they are innocent..
well to be fair the first thing that crosses my mind when me and my partner go to bed is the possibility of the trauma that we might have to go through if we dare to share our love!?
S*$t happens, condoms break, pills don't work.. no contraception is 100% effective. Are you suggesting that a loving or married couple who can't afford to have a baby abstain from sex altogether just in case? ridiculous.
nevertheless it IS law and if you actually read my post i was not suggesting the law is common sense only that I had put my argument forward using my own common sense and not making ridiculous claims.
Again please try to read and understand the context in which I say something. I wasnot only referring to rape victims, but those in abusive relationships, drug addicts, mentally ill people unable to look after a child. There are so many factors you are not taking into account. not everyone is the promiscuous sex addicts you're painting them out to be.
like forced sterilization again?
The birth control effectiveness of the IUD has been shown to have 99% success rate in the prevention of pregnancy. However, individuals should keep in mind that IUDs do not protect against sexually transmitted diseases.
Not every woman can use an IUD. Some women experience allergic reactions to the copper found in IUDs.
If you don't believe in abortion, don't have one. No one should tell a woman what they can and cannot do with their body.
