Contraceptive Mentality

  /   Sunday April 13, 2003  

Just after I graduated from pharmacy school in 1999, I went to work for a hospital in Mississippi to give me something to do before I got a license. I saw a couple of ladies who were probably employees talking, one of whom was pregnant. The pregnant one said to the other “That’s what happens when you don’t take those pills.” She started to talk about how she went through some stress and forgot some of her doses of her birth control pill. She said that she was upset at first but now she was excited. However, she plans to try to get her husband to have a vasectomy.

I was disheartened to hear this. This woman has ingrained in herself, with help from secular society, that children are a disease that you take pills to try to avoid. Pregnancy was a result of “not taking those pills” instead of the result of a loving act between her and her husband. Indeed, much of the contraceptive mentality is like this. Try telling someone that contraception is wrong, and often one of the first things you hear about is how people are going to end up having 1,232,353,656 children. It seems that a little basic biology course is in order, not to mention morality, especially chastity.

This post was inspired by this post by Jeff Miller.
