Unwanted Children...What is YOUR solution?

Posted by   + Show Post

So we dont' want easy access to birth control and Plan B because it 'encourages' unsafe sex and many want to outlaw abortion. We have proven time and time again that you cannot legislate morality and sexual conduct to those who don't subscribe to your personal set of values. I anticipate a major baby boom soon. 

What should happen to all of these extra unwanted children and how will we be addressing the social issues they bring:

Health Problems

  • Both Russo and David and the National Campaign state that often women who face an unwanted pregnancy do not get prenatal care, putting their baby at risk for a premature birth, low birth weight, or other neurological disorders.

Single Families

  • Women must often raise the unwanted child by themselves, working a low-paying job, and the child may be forced to live below the poverty line. The mother may take her stress out on the child and start the cycle of child abuse.

Cognitive Issues

  • Children born to unprepared mothers may suffer academically as well. Since they live in poor neighborhoods, and their mother is always working and not spending time interacting with them, children may learn the alphabet or their numbers significantly later.

Behavior

  • According to Russo and David, unwanted children may suffer from low self-esteem during their childhood, and later act out their frustrations by turning to criminal behavior.

Wow, that's a lot of judgement towards me. If you're gonna call me an ass, at least have the balls to spell it out.

Back to the debate, your link doesn't invalidate my information. When you're done lashing out at me like a child, let me know and we'll return to the subject at hand. 

If you don't like my source, attack the government agency putting out the information. 

*edited to add* Bashing me has much more credibility when you utilize spell check first....just sayin.

Woodbabe.....or is it Woodchuck? You self pompous a$$! Where do you get your great ability to communicate w/others? Obviously your inferiority complex leaves you feeling the need to use such ignorant sarcasicm at the expense of your own intellect! The degree to how quickly you judge others reminds me of my early elementary students! Clearly you need to get out of the woods more often!

Background

Reproductive control including pregnancy coercion (coercion by male partners to become pregnant) and birth control sabotage (partner interference with contraception) may be associated with partner violence and risk for unintended pregnancy among young adult females.


1. Introduction

Nearly one in four women in the United States report experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life [1], with adolescents and young adults at highest risk for intimate partner violence [25]. Studies have highlighted the association between partner violence and unintended pregnancy [614]. Recent evidence suggests these associations co-occur with reproductive control, i.e., male partners’ attempts to control a woman’s reproductive choices. Abused women face compromised decision-making regarding, or limited ability to enact, contraceptive use and family planning, including fear of condom negotiation [91520]. Women’s lack of control over her reproductive health is increasingly recognized as a critical mechanism underlying abused women’s elevated risk for unintended pregnancy [2122].

One specific element of abusive men’s control that may, in part, explain the association of partner violence with unintended pregnancy is overt pregnancy coercion and direct interference with contraception. Some males use verbal demands, threats, and physical violence to pressure their female partners to become pregnant [122324]. Reproductive control may also take the form of direct acts that ensure a woman cannot use contraception -- birth control sabotage – including flushing birth control pills down the toilet, intentional breaking of condoms, and removing contraceptive rings or patches [2324]

Quoting mommyintraining:

where in the world do you attain your false info???

Quoting Woodbabe:

Because its a 'back atcha' to ladies like you who ignore the facts that one in four American women between the ages of 15-30 are victims of 'pregnancy coersion' and simply find it easier to assume that every woman has a life where they're of sound mind and body and able to 'just say no' and have those words respected.

Quoting mommyintraining:

Not a subject to be taken so lightly and considering rape consists of only 7% of the nations abortions......really? why does everyone want to run to the rape card rather than just take responsibility for your actions? Is it really that difficult?

Quoting Woodbabe:


Quoting MyJaidonreturns:

Dont have kids you cant afford. Dont have sex. Wear metal chastity panties and ignore the opposite sex all together.

^^i dont agree with any of that, I just wanted to beat the morally superior and self righteous moms :-)

Keep yer legs together and if you're raped, it must be God's plan?

All of this ire because I quoted a government study on pregnancy coersion that goes against your idea of 'keep your legs together'?

I'm flattered that I've made enough of an impression out of all the thousands of women on this board, but it seems to me that if you know me so well then you also realize that I don't normally bring on the snark unless you've aimed it at me first. Going back over our exchange, it truly seems that YOU are the one with the mean and nasty tone, honestly. Perhaps you were simply here to hump my leg and to derail the subject at hand instead of actually discussing it?
