Condoms fail when people put then on wrong.  Or buy the wrong size.  Or wear two at once like an idiot.
Otherwise they work really well. I trust it over any medication.
Yes and my point is that women have birth control pills and they're more heavily relied upon than condoms so there's no reason men shouldn't also have birth control pills if the science allows it.

Obviously if everyone wore condoms correctly every time they had sex we wouldn't be having this conversation.

Male birth control exists.
Its called a condom.  Men just hate it.

Also, vasectamy. Totally reversable but ya know... Thats evil to suggest men get them until they want kids.
Condoms are more prone to failure than other forms of birth control, but yeah are generally good sense to use for STDs. Vasectomy reversals can be pricey and there is about a 90-95% chance of success on top of it being a surgery which a lot of people aren't super comfortable with. Men tend to get vasectomies when they're done having kids rather than temporary birth control which is understandable.

So obviously I'm talking about medication - something that would help put the shared burden on guys instead of assuming all women are or should be on hormonal birth control.

I saw an article talking about male birth control being tested. COMING SOONTM!
They've been working on them for awhile, but are slow going because of side effects which women already deal with when taking birth control. Which is good, but I wish they'd take this kind of care with female birth control.

Most compounds currently undergoing clinical trials target the male sex hormone testosterone, which could lead to side effects such as weight gain, depression and increased low-density lipoprotein (known as LDL) cholesterol levels. “We wanted to develop a non-hormonal male contraceptive to avoid these side effects,”

I don't see why this is so hard to figure out.



What about men?  Could tell them not to have sex too.
Semen is always encouraged to flow freely and abundantly. Shame we still don't have male birth control.

Ah, yes. The very democratic process of letting the minority (rural counties) decide that women should have sex only for procreation. All super original points that are very logical, efficient, and have historically worked super well everywhere it was implemented. Thanks, Tom!

Sweden is well known for its terrorists.  There was even a documentary made about it.

It's honestly surprising the lack of imagination some men can have about going through a pregnancy. I was only 6 weeks in and I couldn't do or eat anything for about half the day every day because I was so floored by nausea. I'm even open to trying to have a kid in the near-ish future and everything about it is still terrifying. Talking to my friends/family who have had kids makes it even worse tbh because they don't have good stories to tell. Someone in my family recently had a hysterectomy because her bladder was prolapsed because her uterine walls were weaker since having kids, something that's fairly common but not talked about.

This country can't even mandate paid parental leave. Imagine going through an 18 hour labor, still needing an emergency c-section, and then having to go back to work asap because you can't afford not to but you also have to pay a ridiculous amount of money for child care. Oh but you're also going through horrible postpartum depression.

Overall, the average child care cost for one child in 2020 was $612/week for a nanny (up from $565/week in 2019), $340/week for a child care or day care center (up from $182/week) and $300/week for a family care center (up from $177/week).

I've literally had an abortion and I never once regretted it and I rarely think about it. I did not suffer emotionally.

I don't see a difference between a woman purposefully ending her pregnancy because it inconveniences
On this line of thought though, where would you draw the line between inconvenience and genuine life changing harm?

I wouldn't, as there isn't any. What is mere inconvenience to one is "genuine life changing harm" to another. Maybe women should think more about how important the life of their children is versus drinking starbucks and eating avocado toast all day.
So anything less than death would just be an inconvenience?

For the record, I never said anything about what was human versus what was parasitic.

Yes, you only mentioned tapeworms in a thread about abortion. I can imagine all the infinite lines of reasoning you were going down. Certainly not comparing abortion to killing parasites. Nope. That wasn't going to be it at all, obviously.
Markjo made the tapeworm comparison. Tom Bishop then said people acknowledge killing a tapeworm so killing = murder. I was just being pedantic about how you literally can't murder a tapeworm.

Thanks for your honest answers.

Do people murder tapeworms?

If we're going to start comparing humans to parasites then I've got a very long list of humans that we can start aborting.
I wasn't aware humans could resemble a heavy period and flush down the toilet.

This thread was a particularly fun read for what pregnancy can do to your body that you don't often hear about.

Actually it is the majority in the states who are deciding health issues for its populous.
You know just like everyone else that the rural minority has a louder voice than the cities. That's true for every damn state in this country and Republicans push hard to keep that rural vote.  78% of Texans think abortion should be allowed in some form which doesn't reflect what's happening there. https://www.texastribune.org/2022/05/04/texas-abortion-ut-poll/

The rest of your post is surprisingly sensible.
No it's not, he's a troll who says lies and nonsense taking advantage of the fact that you don't know much about this country.

In the 1700's and 1800's when abortion was widely illegal and taboo society was built around it.
This is not true. It was only around the late 1800s that multiple states started making abortion illegal. Before that it was generally good sense to do so if you didn't have the resources.

The main reason they became illegal in the first place is because they were dangerous and could often kill the woman as well. The radical right we deal with today is a fairly new breed of person not based in history or tradition.
