  • it is a very responsible thing to do especially in this economy. i don't see the point of having more kids than one can afford only to end up on public assistance. i think before bringing kids into this world we should be well equipped financially to take care of them.

  • I do believe in using birth control. I took the pill for many years (now my tubes are tied and I don't have to worry about bc) and it was nice to know that I did not have to count days, abstain or worry about when my period would arrive or if I could be pregnant... especially during the early years when hubs and I did not want to start a family just yet.

  • I'm Catholic, so I don't use any contraceptives. My hubby and I do natural family planning....meaning I track my ovulation and we abstain that week. If you're diligent, and charting, and disciplined with it, it's really a great way to keep from getting pregnant. Plus I am not a fan of putting extra hormones in my body. I was put on birth control pills when I was younger to help with my endrometriosis, and it made me crazy! After I got the endo removed I didn't really need pills to help me anymore.

  • I know that bc is not 100% and sometimes "accidents" happen.. but by using bc the chances of that were a lot less than not having bc and taking a chance.

  • If you cant afford to support your kids finanancially,then yes,birth control should be your option. Also if you dont desire kids.
