Btw, I know you were just being "snarky" but yikes! What a comment.
Yes, it was snarky, but yeah, it was a reflection of the disgust I felt reading this thread. So okay, I'll be honest here - and you're not gonna like me for it.
I was born Catholic. There are a lot of things I learned from being Catholic that I am glad I learned. Birth control is one of them.
A teen-ager who chooses to engage in pre-marital sex after I have instilled in her the consequences of such actions deserves to live those consequences. Yes, even if it involves having to live through getting pregnant. Giving her birth control pills is the same as telling a toddler - "I'm going to count to 3 - 1, 2, 3" and nothing happens after 3.
Should the baby suffer? No. And it will be my child's as well as MY responsibility to insure that the baby does not suffer. Giving my daughter birth control pills to "soften the fall" is me abjugating MY responsibility for my daughter. Giving my daughter a condom to prevent her from dying from STD is abjudgating MY responsibility to my daughter. She wants to have sex, she gets to die of STD if she is stupid enough not to heed my counsel and provide for her own protection. I will grieve until the day I die but I will feel secure in the knowledge that I taught her to the best of my ability the consequences of her actions.
My husband's sister died of oxycontin overdose. Her parents taught her everything and she still decided to defy them. Her parents will be grieving until the day they die but they are secure in the knowledge that they did their absolute best by her.
God has a reason why He gave me 2 sons and no daughters.
