    Yes that's obviously what I meant if you google abstinence abortion rates you will find more info. As previous posters have mentioned the best way to lower abortion rates is to make contraception free and readily available to all women and men.

    And I do not believe it was my responsibility to remind my doctor to do his job properly as the GYN I saw pointed out, how bizarre

    Sorry I just thought/think its common knowledge that when changing birth control there is a period of no hanky panky.

    On a positive note, I totally agree with the bit about being free and readily available.

    And that's how you get the award for "tell it like it is - straight shooter" (as opposed to "most politically correct")

    Google it, it's very creepy but not surprising for America (which has a lot of religious nuts).

    NFP is actually very reliable when you use it correctly. Never had a whoopsie in 15 years of using it I think the issue comes when women either don't know their cycles properly, or don't abstain during fertile times.

    There's no religious nuts here??!!

    I did google it, they happen but a very small minority. Who cares if they do virginity pledges? Is it harmful? If those are their beliefs so be it.

    My biggest pet peeve is people constantly stating things 'that happen in America' when in fact they are most often false or a very small minority of Americans.

    Withdrawal is actually very reliable too (as reliable as the condom) as long as it is done correctly. The 2 mistakes most people are #1 not pulling out early enough and #2 not flushing the pipes between rounds of intercourse/masturbation by simply peeing.

    But it does happen. And because it has such a large and varied population, a "small minority of Americans" can work out to be a pretty large number.
