Pro Lifers...No birth control??

Just wondering if you are pro life and against contraceptives...If a women has AIDS or is a crack addict and has multiple children who are infected with AIDS or addicted to crack...she either leaves them at a hospital for someone else to have to deal with or keeps them and is unable to properly care for or protect them...and continues to get pregnant and put more children in danger but (she is not willing to get her tubes tied but would take birth control) should this women be allowed to continue to get pregnant?? why shouldn't she be allowed contraceptives??

Just curious...

  • Your are talking about a crack addict that doesn't care if she is gets pregnant. They are not going to go to a clinic to get BC because they would rather spend the money on drugs and they going to get an abortion for the same reason. And there are lots of families that would be willing to take on drug babies or AIDS babies. But, in a lot of states there are limits on how many kids you can adopt out of foster care. And there are lots of families that WOULD adopt those crack babies if they would take them at birth but, they don't in most cases. And a lot of people don't have the money to fix up their houses to CPS standards. SO, using the crack baby/mommy excuse is not valid for abortion.

  • Contraception is not the same as abortion....preventing life from forming does not equal brutally murdering someone by vacuuming their brains out, or chemically burning them to death.

  • wow that is a discusting thing to think about, it happens a lot though, i argee with the poster. i cannot understand the anti choice movement. i would like to see a law that says after lets say 5 abortion (that werent from medical needs) that they have to get their tubes tied for the greater good!

  • how do those two things relate? I am pro life for a child that has been conceived but I have NO problem with preventing. Its necessary to prevent even if its just using NFP method. There are ways to prevent pregnacy without using contraceptives. It doesn't have to be one or the other.

  • OP---I did not say that being a drug addict was an excuse to have an abortion...I am just curious for those people who are against abortions and contraceptives would you be okay with a women who was in either of those positions to continue having children she didn't plan on keeping or taking care of??...Are there LOTS of people lining up to adopt babies that are born addicted to drugs or that are born with AIDS no but there are some people who do...
