Abortion is the Only Real Birth Control...Says Abortionist

At the Abortioneers:

Some pro-choice organizations even try to dispel "abortion as a birth control method" as one of those "myths" that antis like to drum up; the fact of the matter is, abortion really is the ONLY birth control method. Contraception ("birth control") prevents pregnancy; it doesn't "control" it. The only thing that actually controls whether or not a birth takes place is abortion. The other fact is - like it or not - some women do use abortion as their method of birth control.

Gotta love the honesty.

Personally, I don't see what all the hoopla's about. Big deal if a woman refuses contraception on the day of her abortion! So what if she gets pregnant and has an abortion again (gasp!)! Yes. You read that right. I am asking you, "so what?!"

Yeah! Who cares if abortion snuffs out a prenatal human life! Tough luck, fetus! There are no existential questions involved whatsoever. It's all very straightforward.

And it's my opinion that abortion may actually have fewer long-term and short-term side effects than most hormonal contraception anyway! (Double gasp!) Many women gain weight, experience mood swings, have crazy bleeding, get acne, stop wanting sex, deal with headaches, get bloated, become dizzy at times, experience sore breasts, and/or get nauseated at some point when taking hormonal birth control (obviously, this depends on the type of hormones used. And no, I am not anti-contraception). I don't know about you, but I get a little nervous when I hear the birth control pill adverts out there warn about stroke and heart attack if you smoke and are over 35. Newsflash: if you smoke and are over 35 and have an abortion, you're not at risk for stroke or heart attack.

Of course there are health risks associated with abortion. But whatever!

I think that when we say things like "abortion should be the last resort" or "women should get on birth control so they don't have to have another abortion," we're basically saying there's something intrinsically wrong with abortion.I'm saying there isn't.

Well looky here. An abortionist who's pro-abortion. Who wudda thunk?

I'm saying that if a woman wants to use abortion as her birth control method, then so be it. Let her. It isn't hurting her.

Is it me, or is that statement grossly misleading and maybe even irresponsible? Advoating surgery as birth control? Red flags anyone?
