This article is a bit old, but I couldn't believe it when I read it via Powerline. Just wow. An older married couple gets all hot and heavy and "forgets" to use birth control. The lady can't get the morning after pill in her area, so she gets pregnant and has an abortion. And she blames Bush for her abortion. Wow. How 'bout blaming your freaking self for not being smart enough to calm down for two seconds and use some danged birth control? Do people ever take personal responsibility for anything these days?

Bah, people's ignorance always dismays me. NOt only is she trying to play the victim for something she was very much in control of. but she is also ill-informed, and is ill-informing her readers, too. The morning after pill is not the only way to have emergency contraception. Basically that is a dedicated pill for emergency contraception, but you can use your own birth control pills in the same fashion. You would think someone writing an article like that might have done some research and perhaps looked into alternatives, but she seems to think that was her only option when it came to pills. I am sure she would have been able to get a prescription of birth control pills filled. Plus apparently there is more than a 72 hour window...according to one site I checked you have at least 150 hours. So, that is just in 5 minutes I found that info online...she probably could have saved herself a world of grief if she had done the same.

I just noticed the link doesn't work. But if you click here and go to click on "List" for the US, you will get the list of possible contraceptive pills.

This woman just HAD to have someone to blame for her stupidity, and why not blame Bush he gets blamed for everything else.
It frightens me to think of what excuses she could be teaching her children. Will she blame Bush if her kids come home knocked up ten years from now?

Stop the insanity!
