Birth control for everyone! No cost! No responsibility!

Q:  Just what disease does birth control prevent?


 Yes, that right.  Children are now a disease.  They must be prevented.  And I'm gonna have to pay for it.  So are you.

This is an actual question and response from the above website, an ABC poll re' the "free birth control" movement.  The responses on the site are chilling.  I am keenly aware that there are a gazillion knuckleheads that freely mouth off on every topic, regardless of their level of competency on said subject.  However, it is clear from this poll that this is not an isolated opinion:  children are a disease, they are nothing but trouble, they cause nothing but heartache, they are a huge economic expense....frankly, children have no redeeming value and they must not exist.

Go ahead, read the responses and see what you think.  We've come to a point in our nation where children are bad.  They must be prevented.  If we can't prevent pregnancy, we'll abort 'em.  

Small wonder our kids are cutting themselves, are depressed, are contemplating suicide, and seeking love through sex.  We've done a very good job telling them how much we don't like them.

  1. This is not about free birth control, it is about insurance coverage, and Medicaid, mandated to cover birth control. Women who exercise choice about the spacing of their children are statistically more likely to have healthier children and to live more economically empowered lives.

    What does that mean? Fewer abortions and fewer children using government programs like Medicaid (for which we pay), food stamps (for which we pay), housing vouchers (for which we pay), other public assistance programs (for which we pay).

    Also, this policy will hopefully postpone the age of women who give birth for the first time. If that happens, more women will achieve higher levels of education and be in a better position to care for the children they choose to have.

    What part of this is disagreeable to you?

  2. Roxy, thanks for the comment. If you look at the above link, read through some of the comments. Many of them make it clear that the respondents REALLY dislike children - they think of them as a disease to be prevented. That quote above is an actual one from the website.

    Besides, I don't see the point of free birth control. Birth control, in many forms, is free or almost free to almost all US women. It has not done anything to reduce the rate of births of children born into poverty. In fact, the availability of birth control has only increased the births of children in one parent households. Children born to only one parent are 66% more likely to grow up in poverty than children born to two parents.

    Abstinence is free, and 100% effective. People are not animals, and can indeed choose not to engage in sex when they are not ready to be parents.

Trying to "end run" God

If you're a football fan, you know what an end run is. From Merriam-Webster:
a football play in which the ballcarrier attempts to run wide around the end of the line We try to "end run" God a lot. I do. I figure I know better. I've got this - no need to worry the Big Guy about such a trivial thing.

Of course, it never works.

Like the puppy above, when we try and evade the tough obstacle (even though we KNOW we will eventually have to do it), we end up - well, off in the bushes.

But oh! How I wished my way worked. I'd love to take a flying leap and land smoothly and gracefully. People would be in awe, as if watching Simone Biles nail a balance beam routine that no one else would even attempt. I would shyly look down and blush - just lightly - and acknowledge (But humbly! Oh so humbly!) my achievement.

But no: I am the one pulling myself out of the bushes, scratches all over my legs and twigs in my hair. I'd hear that gentle but loving voice of God saying, &quo…

Being faithful in the midst of pain

When we are in pain, it seems as if the whole world revolves around us - or should. We only pay attention to our immediate situation.

When our kids were younger, Eldest Son had a lot of problems. There was a time - months and months - where his issues seems to need all of Dear Husband's and my attention. I clearly remember thinking one day, "Whoa - I have GOT to pay attention to the other kids." It's not like I was neglecting them ... no, I was. Maybe it was necessary; we were literally trying to save our son's future, but it didn't make the realization hurt any less. And I couldn't get the time with them back.

Maybe it's a job. Maybe it's a health issue. Maybe it's caring for a child or an elderly parent. Whatever it is, we get sucked into a situation where hurt is involved and we begin to act like an ER doctor - plugging holes, clearing airways, keeping the person alive. That's it. We are keeping the situation alive.

Secret Santa!!

Too old for Santa? I think not.

Yes, there are discussions as to whether we should "lie" to kids and tell them that Santa brings them gifts vs. We can't lie to the kids; it's wrong.

There is also the "Christmas is about Jesus" vs. "But Santa is magical!"

You know, we have so few magical and joyful moments, and less and less as we get older. Santa is fun. And the kids usually figure it out, and no one I know was ever scarred for life for believing that Santa brought them and every child everywhere a toy for Christmas.

It's the magic of looking up at the sky on a clear December night, thinking "I'll wait up to see Santa" and later, as you fell asleep at the window, being in your daddy's arms as he carries you to bed.

It's the magic of putting out cookies and milk (or beer, because Santa does like beer) and maybe some carrots for the reindeer, and then checking in the morning to make sure the food was all consumed.

It's…
