I have a medical background... and I see a distinct difference. Hormonal birth control (the Pill, the patch, Nuvaring, Norplant, Implanon, etc.) do not prevent implantation or causes spontanious abortion, they prevent a woman from producing and releasing eggs. Therefore, no egg is there for the sperm to fertilize.
Abortion is removing an embryo or fetus that is already alive and thriving in the uterus. During an abortion...they are actually terminating a life.
So why do some people think this is the same thing?? I don't get it!

I know that there are some forms of birth control that do cause you to miscarry.Â the IUD. My doc went over them with me, cause I of course wanted to be sure that's not what I was on. The IUDÂ Â prevents the fertilized egg from attaching itself to the wall of the womb. So to me that would be aborting.Â Â Â As far as bringing God into it all..Genesis 1:28; 9:1, Told us to fill the eath,yes but
Â The Scriptures neither encourage couples to have children nor tell them to refrain. Married couples may decide for themselves whether to have children or not and, if they do plan for children, how many they will have and when they will have them.Â Â Â

So you should be wise in your decisions. I am not saying that I disagree with having a large family, I have 4 kids and I come from a large family as well. I would love to have one more, But in today's world, I know that I can't. This world is too demanding plus too expensive. So for our family, not a good idea.But as for others, that's their decision..
Next question overall
How many mothers on here been or are going though Postpartum Depression?
