A recent study explains that a considerable portion of the female population is both using birth control and desiring to get pregnant.
The researchers also found that many women who are lax about birth control are simply ambivalent about preventing a pregnancy and confessed that they would be very pleased if they found out they were pregnant.
Of course, this article doesn’t claim these women want to get pregnant. It refers to them instead as “women who are the least motivated to avoid pregnancy.”
So why are these women on birth control? Is it trendy? Is it fun? Am I missing something?
Perhaps it has to do with a social imposition. Generally, men expect “their” women to be on birth control within an unmarried sexual relationship. However, a woman generally has an innate desire to have a child. Try as we might, biologically, we can’t successfully separate sex from procreation. Thanks to modern feminism, our gender-image has been so warped that a sexually active woman wanting to get pregnant (out of that perfect context) is unreasonable, flighty, and even creepy.
So here we have loads women happily getting pregnant from intentionally inconsistent birth control use. Now they need to tell the new, clueless father-to-be. The result of this mix? Perhaps it’s this:
…up to 64 percent of abortions every year are a result of violence and coercion – a practice… that brings unbearable and life lasting trauma to thousands of women.
Way to go, modern feminism! Just look how well the sexual liberation of women is working out.by
