Quote# 5555

Because God controls our reproductive health. That is the whole premise behind the sinful nature of using artificial means to prevent pregnancy. God would not allow a woman to stay 'barefoot and pregnant' if she wasn't bodily, emotionally, or mentally prepared to take on the responsiblity of having many children.

And that, dear children, is why women with crippling mental handicaps are able to have babies.

I'm clinically depressed, and having a baby has over an eighty percent change of triggering bipolar disorder in me. Just like it did with my grandmother. And my mother. Thankfully, my poor mother was diagnosed. Sadly, it wasn't until after my one other sibling was born.

If I have a child, there is a very high possibility that it will end up with the same mental disorders from which I suffer. The chance will go up for every child I have. Also, I've been suicidal in the past, and such incredible hormonal changes are almost certain to send me over the edge.

OBVIOUSLY, I SHOULD BE PRODUCING AS MANY CHILDREN AS POSSIBLE.

Repeat after me: women are not robots. Every woman is different. Every woman has different emotions, feelings, opinions, and capabilities.


By the by, my first reaction to someone saying something like this is to hunt them down and kill them. Repressing that urge is not 'natural'. God would only allow me to feel that if he thought that I was physically, emotionally, and mentally prepared to commit such an act.

Huh. I think I like that idea.

This idea that women are nothing more than baby machines and slaves to lazy-ass husbands makes me sick. Fuck the damn Babble. If anyone tries to sell me that 'thou should be barefoot and pregnant' shit is going to recieve a fucking great boot up their ass.

I reiterate... women are not robots!

Allow. Allow? ALLOW?! Your little cult all but FORCES women to become nothing more than baby factories.

Teensy-weensy problem here, in that this

Is proven false by myriad teenage pregnancies, mothers stuck on welfare, etc.

Explain how miscarriages and stillbirths occur. Explain how twelve-year-old girls can become pregnant. No? Then shut up.

Nature and evolutionary development control reproductive systems. And hormones which can be effected by diet, inbalances and outside elements. The fact there are stillborn and deformed children should tell you no God's in the mix. And the fact that a piece of latex could twart a supreme being.

However, for some unknown reason, he makes women to die in childbearing, to contract cancer while pregnant, sterile..................and makes people to invent contraconceptives. So, yes, he´s in control, even when it´s not convenient to you.
