  •  One of the ironies, one of the immoralities (1+ / 0-)

    --to my mind--at play here is that people often put as little fore-thought into the wisdom of a conception as the wisdom of a u-turn.    With great power comes great responsibility, and as a consequence, the advance of technologies changes our moral landscape.  At this point we have technologies that can allow virtually every pregnancy (99+%) to be a sought pregnancy, an intended pregnancy.  The primary barrier, the reason that half of the pregnancies in this country are unintended is due to the antagonism of religious conservatives toward mindful childbearing and toward sexuality more broadly.
