FTFA: Wisecarver said staff always explain to women that they are not a medical office and direct them to make an appointment at a doctor's office, adding that they even pay for women's doctor's visits.

I fail to understand why the State is legally permitted to fund non-medical centers that dispense demonstrably false medical information. DIsclaimer notwithstanding, this is for all intents and purposes practicing medicine without a license.

FTFA: We feel that a woman's fertility is a normal thing -- you have to take meds when you're sick, not when you're healthy, and all medication has side effects. I took birth control for years didn't know how sick it was making me until I stopped."

What she "feels" does not deserve state funding any more than my "feelings" do. While it is true that all medications have side effects, the fact is that women also take hormonal contraceptives for medical reasons entirely unrelated to pregnancy. Again this is practicing medicine without a license. Why isn't NARAL pushing for their prosecution?

The counselor also told the woman that condoms are not effective at preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases because they are "naturally porous."

This one I've always wondered about how people can think it works that way.

Step 1) Fill a bottle with water.
Step 2) Unroll a condom and stick it over the mouth of the bottle.
Step 3) Flip the bottle over so the water flows into the condom.
Step 4) Note the lack of water flowing out of the "pores" in the condom.

If it effectively holds water, it's going to hold back sperm.  Sure if you filled a condom with sperm laden fluid and put it under pressure and left it inside a woman for an extended period of time then some might well escape.  But given how few sperm actually make it to the egg even when there's nothing impeding their progress the chances of pregnancy are rather slim.

Well, to be fair, the quote as quoted is accurate. There is no such thing as 100% safe sex. Condoms and other prophylactics break, and birth control doesn't prevent STDs,

I DNRTFA, though, so I'm assuming there is a lot more derp besides the headline quote.

Condoms are not 100% effective. Neither are seatbelts.
 
2013-08-08 07:16:02 PM
I have to agree with the lady.  You could be wearing a condom and your partner may hit you in the head with an axe because it is the wrong brand.

Perhaps, she should have also reminded the customer that pregnancy leads to death; therefore, no one should ever become pregnant.  And breathing may cause you to inhale a bug, which is kind of nasty.

Of course, given the political bent of the state, why is it a mystery that the woman is an idiot?

It doesn't even make any sense if you're too lazy to test it yourself.  For it to be true, the condom companies would have to be incredibly incompetent.  What, they didn't notice that their condoms leak?  They couldn't find anything in the entire world that didn't leak after a few centuries of trying?  It's not exactly brain surgery, it's saran wrap for your cock.

This thread has more illogical claims per insult than a Politics thread. How can anyone think that there is sex with zero risk of pregnancy (risk is valid for heterosex only I suppose) or STDs (everyone is at risk)? Nobody who is aware of the existence of statistics, actuarial science, or how materials work, could think that. You don't even need to understand stats or engineering, you just have to know they exist, in order to get the point.

If we're using those criteria, then abstinence is not 100% effective either, because you might get raped, or sit in a hot tub with a guy who gets a little too excited, or impregnated by God or something.

/ Also, effectiveness rates for birth control methods tend to take into account both "perfect use" and "typical use." I've never heard an abstinence advocate do the "typical use" analysis for abstinence...

Sex with a condom is much safer than sex without a condom. Obviously nothing is 100% and some diseases like herpes can be spread even when a condom is used, but a person will be better served employing a condom when engaging in intercourse.

This reminds me of when some people (aka Alex Jones and his moronic followers) claim that HIV is smaller than the pores on a condom and can slip through; therefore, condoms are completely ineffective against HIV.

she was told that condoms don't actually prevent STDs and that birth control frequently causes hair loss, memory loss, headaches, weight gain, fatal blood clots and breast cancer.

"The first three ingredients in the birth control pill are carcinogens," the CPC counselor said, adding that she always tries to talk women out of taking it.

she was told that condoms don't actually prevent STDs and that birth control frequently causes hair loss, memory loss, headaches, weight gain, fatal blood clots and breast cancer.

"The first three ingredients in the birth control pill are carcinogens," the CPC counselor said, adding that she always tries to talk women out of taking it.

The counselor also told the woman that condoms are not effective at preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases because they are "naturally porous."

"Safe sex is a joke," she said. "There's no such thing."

Yea there was a lot of crazy being talked about in that article.

RTFA, the counselors made some truly outrageous claims.

Anyway, life is risk management.

If you're going to talk about the small percentage chance of getting pregnant while using multiple forms of birth control, let's also talk about the chances of dying of pregnancy, the chances of being raped ("legitimately") and getting pregnant from the attack, the large chance of not having sex leading to extreme irritability ...
 
2013-08-08 11:00:01 PM
THE JOE03,

Why read the article when I can have you give me the cliff notes?  All kidding aside, I would not, nor can not defend such claims as you posted from said article.

While the pill is not benign (compared to some of the drugs approved today it might as well be a sugar cube) it does have some potential side effects.  Condoms when they do their job are great, unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a Trojan to pretend it is a Firestone tire...

Look, I accept that every human activity has potential drawbacks and there is no way possible to eliminate all risks to human activity.

While I am Pro-Life and do think abstinence does have a place in sex-ed, I do believe that abstinence is only one part of a comprehensive sex-ed program that honestly talks about other forms of birth control.

While the truth of the matter is, if you don't want to get pregnant or contract an STD, don't have sex...The reality of the situation is if you follow that advice life will be quite boring.

IMO, the more important aspect of this debate is what age is appropriate to move from "don't have sex," to "if you are going to have sex, these are the ways to reduce your risk..." and finally, "you are an adult, pregnancy isn't your greatest fear, so this is how to reduce the chance of getting an STD.."

They show the stander gross out STD slideshow, told all the statistics on condoms and birth control (though they didn't really expand on the topic or different types), and handed out virgin pledge cards.

At one point the man asked "How long do you think the average sexual intercourse lasts?" as which one of the students replies "a half hour", the man laughed and told us that it was more like five minutes.  I remember thinking that if you only had one partner your entire life then how would you know if you doing it right?

NkThrasher: The counselor also told the woman that condoms are not effective at preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases because they are "naturally porous."

This one I've always wondered about how people can think it works that way.

Step 1) Fill a bottle with water.
Step 2) Unroll a condom and stick it over the mouth of the bottle.
Step 3) Flip the bottle over so the water flows into the condom.
Step 4) Note the lack of water flowing out of the "pores" in the condom.

If it effectively holds water, it's going to hold back sperm.  Sure if you filled a condom with sperm laden fluid and put it under pressure and left it inside a woman for an extended period of time then some might well escape.  But given how few sperm actually make it to the egg even when there's nothing impeding their progress the chances of pregnancy are rather slim.


This is inaccurate pseudoscience

"A number of reliable studies have demonstrated a connection between abortion and later development of breast cancer."
"an abortion could cause your body to create antibodies that would attack your baby the next time I got pregnant."

I've seen it explained in one of those Chick tracts years ago as something like the molecules that make up a male gamete are smaller than the molecules that make up latex, and as such they can just slip through in the space between each molecule.

Even if that were true (which would require a sperm cell to be able to dissintegrate and then reform to make sense) by that logic EVERYTHING in the universe is porous: the volume of any atom's nucleus and electrons is insignificant compared to the volume of the space between the nucleus and the electrons. There is more nothing than something everywhere unless we're talking about the subatomic level.

Somacandra: FTFA: Wisecarver said staff always explain to women that they are not a medical office and direct them to make an appointment at a doctor's office, adding that they even pay for women's doctor's visits.

I fail to understand why the State is legally permitted to fund non-medical centers that dispense demonstrably false medical information. DIsclaimer notwithstanding, this is for all intents and purposes practicing medicine without a license.

FTFA: We feel that a woman's fertility is a normal thing -- you have to take meds when you're sick, not when you're healthy, and all medication has side effects. I took birth control for years didn't know how sick it was making me until I stopped."

What she "feels" does not deserve state funding any more than my "feelings" do. While it is true that all medications have side effects, the fact is that women also take hormonal contraceptives for medical reasons entirely unrelated to pregnancy. Again this is practicing medicine without a license. Why isn't NARAL pushing for their prosecution?


Even if the woman goes to a doctor's office, if she's in one of the states that dictate what doctors can say about abortion she will get some crazy lawmaker's thoughts on the matter rather than actual medical advice.

The counselor also told the woman that condoms are not effective at preventing pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases because they are "naturally porous."

That's why nobody makes water balloons, that damned "naturally porous" rubber keeps letting the water leak out.

Uchiha_Cycliste: fusillade762: Bennie Crabtree: This thread has more illogical claims per insult than a Politics thread. How can anyone think that there is sex with zero risk of pregnancy (risk is valid for heterosex only I suppose) or STDs (everyone is at risk)? Nobody who is aware of the existence of statistics, actuarial science, or how materials work, could think that. You don't even need to understand stats or engineering, you just have to know they exist, in order to get the point.

WTF are you talking about?

He's never heard of a vasectomy.


You think a vasectomy prevents STDs?

LordJiro: Well, to be fair, the quote as quoted is accurate. There is no such thing as 100% safe sex. Condoms and other prophylactics break, and birth control doesn't prevent STDs,

I DNRTFA, though, so I'm assuming there is a lot more derp besides the headline quote.


Yep, and there's no such thing as 100% safe skiing, or 100% safe cycling, or 100% safe driving, or 100% safe living, and yet I bet these people don't see anything wrong with taking reasonable risks so long as it doesn't involve dirty, sinful sex.

Graffito: Smackledorfer: HypnozombieX:  Sex is evil wrong and you should fell ashamed for even thinking about it.
Yeah, that's pretty much been the southern strategy for as long as I can remember.

Women really need to stop putting out for people who vote to punish women for sex.

Balls are literally in your court, ladies.

I will just bring that up at the next meeting of the female continuum.

(We could solve the world's crime and war problems if men would just stop engaging in those activities.  Balls in your court, guys. )


First of all, the underlined statement is false.  Women are criminals and warmongers as well.  The only thing holding them back is having been the smaller sex over the years and less likely to have the decision-making position to start wars and beat people up to take their stuff.  So don't play high ground with me here.

Second of all, I am not blaming women for this.  What I am saying is the wives, girlfriends, sisters, aunts, and other friends of these anti-woman assholes have one hell of a lot more ability to change them than I do.  You can complain that it is unfair that the wife of a bigot has the ability to do things like 1. Not date him. 2. Not marry him. 3. Stop putting out when he declares you a second class citizen and votes as such, but you can't deny that is more than any other man can do.  On top of that, it is far less likely that every male in the person's life knows their bigotry than it is that the woman sharing a bed with them does.  If you don't know your boyfriend/husband well enough to know if he thinks you are a second class citizen then you are doing it wrong.

Of course there is no female continuum, and obviously my statement wasn't mean to blame the women who DON'T put up with that shiat.  But with 30% or so women voting for Republicans who pass these laws and what I can only assume to be another 20% choosing to put up with it.

There is a lot of stuff I can put up with in a significant other.  The belief that I am by default inferior and to be punished for the same activities they get to brag about with their friends? Ya, fark that.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Sex is a sin

/Lying is perfectly acceptable



its funny how many of these so called religious types have no problem lying.  What about that commandment not to bear false witness.  But that is probably not as important as that one line in leviticus that says the gays are bad.   That one line seems to be the central tenant of amercian christianity.  good thing they ignore the ten commandments, because if they did not lie, they could not call themselves christians.

My apologies.  Of course men aren't responsible for all violence.  I was trying to make a point about lumping people together - particularly groups as large and diverse as women (or men).  I don't know what it would take to get the 40% or so of retro-women to wake up.    Unlike racial and ethnic groupings where "the other" exists outside the family, women and men live together as families.  It complicates things.

My friends and I don't vote the same, and we often cannot even agree on what is sexist.  I have male friends who are far more feminist than some of my female friends.   In a male-dominated world many people (women as well as men) wait for widespread male approval before embracing an idea.   The role of enlightened men cannot be underestimated as frustrating as it is for me to admit.

I can agree with that, and certainly does come down to matters of degree.  I think every man or women is going to hold some kinds of stereotyping thoughts about the opposite sex and have varying ability to get past it.  I guess to me I just see "voting for santorum" as multiple levels beyond "women should be doing the cleaning and men should be mowing the lawn" and those other things.  When it takes a step beyond the personal life and moves into voting and legislating the behavior of strangers, that becomes a pretty big step.

And there you have it. How the F*CK do these people get taxpayer money?


because when we talk about schools or govt institutions providing this service, everyone cries about socialism, free market, blan blah blah.  It's not socialism if the government pays someone else to do it!

No, I think it's foolproof against pregnancy. Frankly, I've never worried about STD's. My lifestyle doesn't warrant the concern.  Under the assumption that you know well and trust your partner a vasectomy if safe-sex

If I worked at a pregnancy crisis center and my job's responsibilities revolved entirely around helping people compensate for failures of prophylactics and birth control... I'd probably feel that way too.

As someone that doesn't spend their life entirely in the company of the tenth of a percent of people that suffer protection failure... I have to acknowledge the point, but I'd add that it's in the same way that there's no such thing as walking 'safely' along a road.  There is still such a thing as "safer" and since you're going to need or want to do it at some point I'd advise walking on the sidewalk instead of down the middle of the fast lane.

Basically I think that most people understand that safe sex refers to statistical safety and not absolute protection against everything, since most people aren't wizards or superheroes and that's how most things work for them.

The thing that still amazes me about these agencies is a. they are receiving money from the state government so that they can continue to lie and b. based on the fact that most of these selfsame agencies state that they follow Christian doctrine in what they do, they still are going against the 10 commandments by bearing false witness (which is one of the BIG no no's of the 10).

But I guess to them it's ok to lie, since you can always ask for forgiveness after doing it. *facepalm*
