I'm against abortion as birth control, and even *I* think this law is garbage. In what world is anyone allowed to sue another person for exercising a (according to the SC) Constitutionally protected right where the plaintiff is in no way affected by the action taken? Ate these gonna be ok when California passes a law banning all guns and allowing private citizens to sue anyone who sells a firearm?

^He hates women and doesn't want them to have any control over their own bodies.

Unless it is medically needed (dead fetus, ectopic, etc) I believe abortion is the wrong choice. But I also believe that people have the right to make choices with which i dont agree.

^^^ That may be, but 'abortion as birth control' makes no sense. Abortion isn't birth control; you may as well say you're against squares as color.

If you're grouping abortion in with things like abstinence, it makes wonder how much you understand about either.

That may be, but you are sticking your head in the sand if you think there aren’t at least some small percentage of women that view abortion as a form of birth control.

I for one didn't quite click that the official definition of birth control is "preventing pregnancy"

But I think the slightly less exaggerated answer is for when someone did use birth control and it failed.

I assume AB means consenting partners where at least the woman doesn't want to get pregnant but does by accident and turns to abortion without any other pregnancy complication factors.

I definitely agree that for most people abortion falls within a colloquial definition of birth control that's almost synonymous with women's reproductive health in general.

But there is an ambiguity there and I'd really like to know specifically what aaronburro or StTexan means.

Abortion is a very expensive means of birth control, and I doubt for most people would be their first choice. I seriously doubt people go into the bedroom thinking "Ok, you don't have to pull out, I'll just spend a few thousand dollars in a few months for an abortion."

It's obviously a last resort. So saying it is a form of birth control is just bad naming.

Now, personally, if everybody is healthy, including the fetus, I would prefer giving the child up for adoption but if you can't see why someone would be scared to go through a birth, then you need to witness one first hand.

I can't imagine anyone who says "abortion shouldn't be birth control" has ever talked to a woman who had one. Along with being expensive, they're also physically painful and traumatic. And with ultrasound laws, waiting periods, mandatory "you're killing a child" scripts, etc, they're far worse than they should be.

I've seen couples agonize for the better part of two months about what bathroom fixtures or curtains to get.

Perplexes me that some of those same individuals believe 6 weeks is enough time to time to determine if you want an abortion, especially since your last missed period is the first signal and comes at ~ 4 weeks.

I knew someone who'd had like 6 abortions by the time she was ~23? I might have posted about it in this thread, but I'm too lazy to dig through and find it. Anyway, she's in her 30s now, doing seemingly OK, but her life would be fucked if she had six kids. Unquestionably so. FWIW, she wasn't exactly bragging/happy about it. It was more like she let it slip when she had been drinking, and it was obv she had a lot of mental health/substance abuse issues, and felt horrible that she had to go through the pain/trauma/expense again.

Pretty sure she's an extreme outlier though. A lot of my female friends have had an abortion (or two); wayyyyy more have miscarried. Either experience seems to be universally undesirable/traumatic, but I'll never know-- I don't have a uterus.
