BIRTH CONTROL AND THE LIVING

Once again here we are, at the crossroads and I wish I could here mammy screaming, didn't I tell you daddy said you don't talk about things like that? Funny when things become untouchable due to culture, religion or tradition. Once again I fallibly come before you to err.

A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation.


If a woman is sexually active and she is fertile, physically able to become pregnant, she needs to ask herself, "Do I want to become pregnant now?" If her answer is "No," she must use some method of birth control (contraception). But I ask myself if my mum had such intensive knowledge and insight, with the fear of single parenthood looming over her sexual activities, I might not be contemplating such thoughts of bewilderment in preventing pregnancy.

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

If a woman does not want to get pregnant at this point in her life, does she plan to become pregnant in the future? Soon? Much later? Never? Her answers to these questions can determine the method of birth control that she and her male sexual partner use now and in the future.

The race is not [always] to the swift, nor the battle to the strong.

There are a number of different ways to describe birth control. Terms include contraception, pregnancy prevention, fertility control, and family planning. But no matter what the process is called, sexually active people can choose from a plethora of methods to reduce the possibility of their becoming pregnant. Nevertheless, no method of birth control available today offers perfect protection against sexually transmitted infections in women, and sexually transmitted infections in men (sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs), except abstinence. The best way to say if not ready for the consequence of the forbidden fruit, then don't take it personal on it's passion.

Those who spiritualise tell spiritual lies, because they lack spiritual eyes. One may experience sorrow during the night, but joy arrives in the morning.

It is estimated that there are over millions of unplanned pregnancies every year in the world. Half of these unplanned pregnancies happen because a couple does not use any birth control at all, and the other half occur because the couple uses birth control, but not correctly.

Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, O hold them back. If you say, 'See, we did not know this', does he not consider it who weighs the hearts? And does he not know it who keeps your soul? And will he not render to man according to his work?

On the other hand, I simply cannot believe in any state of unpredicted or unwanted pregnancy because every semen deserves a shot and every human deserves the right to live. Hold on, there is always a but. I don't do religion or myths, I believe in life.

In simple terms, all methods of birth control are based on either preventing a man's sperm from reaching and entering a woman's egg (fertilization) or preventing the fertilized egg from implanting in the woman's uterus (her womb) and starting to grow.

Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

Birth control methods can be reversible or permanent. Reversible birth control means that the method can be stopped at essentially any time without long-term effects on fertility (the ability to become pregnant).

Permanent birth control usually means that the method cannot be undone or reversed, most likely because it involved surgery. Examples of permanent methods include vasectomy for the man or tubal ligation for the woman.

Be strong and of good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed.

Birth control methods can also be classified according to whether they are a barrier method (for example, a condom) that blocks sperm, a mechanical method (for example, an intrauterine device [IUD]), or a hormonal method (for example, the "pill").

When they came, we had the land and they had the bibles. Now they have the land and we have the bibles. Salvation or sheer naiveness.

"Natural" methods do not rely on devices or hormones but on observing some aspect of a woman's body physiology in order to prevent fertilisation.

More people are troubled by what is plain than by what is obscure.

The direct responsibility for most of the methods of birth control that are currently available rests with the woman. The input of a health care practitioner may sometimes be essential in choosing appropriate birth control. New methods of birth control are being developed and tested all the time. And what is appropriate for a couple at one point may change with time and circumstances.

A wise man is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is arrogant and careless.

Unfortunately, no birth control method, except abstinence, is considered to be 100% effective.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain and my deeds to atone for.
