She should have kept her legs shut!

Is it really as simple as that?

I am married and I can say right now that I do not want to get pregnant.  I am taking the precautions since I am on bc but I know that fails.  That doesn't mean that I don't have sex with my husband.  To deny him and myself sexual pleasure would degrade our relationship since sex adds to our intimacy as it does for many people.  It brings about a bond and closeness for one another.  Yet when someone talks about abortion the first thing people say is "She shouldn't be having sex then if she doesn't want a baby".  

I think what people fail to realize is that sex brings about so many advantages.

Here are 10 listed on WebMD

1. Less Stress, Better Blood Pressure

2. Sex Boosts Immunity

3. Sex Burns Calories

4. Sex Improves Heart Health

5. Better Self-Esteem

6. Deeper Intimacy

7. Sex May Turn Down Pain

8. More Ejaculations May Make Prostate Cancer Less Likely

9. Stronger Pelvic Floor Muscles

10. Better Sleep


So while I understand that many here feel sex should be kept within a marriage why is it that you feel if a woman doesn't want to be pregnant then she should become celibate?  I don't know about you but I have sex for more reasons than just procreation.  I mainly do it because it is fun.

I'm with you. That phrase or its equivalents have become my biggest pet peeves. And I wonder how many women on this site say that and then are the same ones saying "if you don't give it up, someone else will." Sorry off topic kind of.

Okay? I think that if you don't want to have a kid you should either make sure both people are fixed; or be celibate. If you don't do either; don't complain when you get pregnant.

I think people who don't want a baby should only have butt sex. Everyone wins =D

I won't complain.  I will drive to the clinic and get an abortion.

No I see where you are going with that one and it is true.  Women simply can't win.
