The Question Club
ok. i was arguing with a pro-life person about their beliefs (i dont start arguments about this, but it was valid, because this particular person engages in unprotected sex ALL THE TIME and told me if i didnt want to get pregnant i shouldnt have sex until marriage.... HELLO, many married women dont want children either!) *ahem* sorry. anyway, i was talking about the inconsistencies on his side (banning OTC emergency contraception, birth control not being covered by insurance, making preventative measures difficult and often unaffordable) and he said that if a woman uses douche with in 1 1/2 minutes of ejaculation it kills sperm. WHERE on gods green earth did he hear such nonsense? he goes to a catholic all boys school, and they show them videos of abortions (too bad most of that is propaganda) which infuriates me, because MEN will never get pregnant and therefore should not legislate MY body. they apparently told him this little gem of misinformation during this anti-abortion lesson.
1. have you ever heard this douche argument?
2. if you are pro-life and male, do you do your part to ensure that sex is protected? do you refrain from sex?
3. arent those abortion videos of late-term abortions? is there any site that refutes them, anything i can show him?
i -know- abortion is a touchy subject, i dont want to cause a debate. im just curious, because this particular pro-lifer was incredibly ignorant... and im quite tolerant of other views. just not his, because he is a flaming hypocrite. if i should post this in an abortion-related community, just let me know and ill delete.
