Catching up on events that occurred during my unexpected blogging hiatus, I note that Serge at LTI Blog has been taking on the “Pill Kills Babies” campaign:
- Does a Thin Uterine Lining Support the “Pill as Baby Killer” Theory?
- What if Breastfeeding Kills?
- How to Decrease the Chances That “the Pill” Kills
And then of course, you have the so-called “pro-life pharmacies” that won’t carry the Pill, Plan B, porn, or condoms. Damned abortifacient condoms.
(Do regular pharmacies carry porn? I mean actual porn, not Cosmo or something? I have no idea.)
Some also won’t sell tobacco, which I do think is a genuinely pro-life policy. (Someday when I want to be depressed, I’ll go look up how many “pro-life” politicians also voted for tobacco subsidies. Today is not that day.) Pro-life should mean “protecting human life”, not “conforming to conservative Christian ideas of sexual morality”.
