Margaret May 13, 2006 - 5:13 pm Interesting, R. I always treat the term contraception as synonymous with (artificial/medical/chemical/barrier/etc) birth control. I count natural family planning as a subset of family planning, but NOT contraception… And Mercatornet ROCKS. They have lots of really well-articulated pieces on a number of issues. R May 13, 2006 - 5:50 pm Well, I can be picky about terminology. “Birth control” is anything intended to prevent BIRTHS. That doesn’t necessarily mean contraception-it also includes aborting after conception has occurred. I do see what you mean about NFP. I suppose the line between “family planning”, when it means delaying pregnancy, and contraception can be thin. Venerable Aussie May 13, 2006 - 9:31 pm Just a small issue Jeff: I know you linked it but it’s actually Mercatornet.com (not mercator.net). I hadn’t seen the latest issue so thanks for the tip. broed May 15, 2006 - 9:25 am from the article… “the trend is causing consternation among birth control advocates, who publicly blame reductions in public funding and privately, perhaps, give vent to exasperation with what they see as the sexual irresponsibility of certain sections of the community.” Those darn “certain sections of the community!” Why can’t someone just explain to them (privately, perhaps) that there are just about the right number of “us” and way, way too many of “them.” Comments are closed.
