What is the best birth control?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I have not touched a drop of alcohol or a flake of tobacco in two years and hope I never to since they are terribly destructive. But if tomorrow, a bill was introduced to re-instate Prohibition, I would vote against it. Why? For the simple reason that Prohibition CREATED far more problems that it solved. Abortion was criminal for many years before Rowe vs. Wade and there were many years of Republican dominated administrations and there were MORE problems with abortion then than there are now. The wealthy women went to countries where abortion is legal. The poor women died in back alley butcher shops or botched home-made abortions. Saying NO to Prohibition is not saying YES to alcoholism. Sometimes on a Saturday I spend several hours at the counter talking to my best friend who is a pharmacist. I always see hesitant embarrassed women loiter for a bit and then ask for Plan B pills for $70. They have to produce their I.D to prove they are of age. They are warned that there will be bleeding and miscarriage symptoms. All these girls are drop dead gorgeous built like brick sit houses. I never see any fat ugly ones come around. Are they committing abortions. Oh, no you say, technically because there is no certainty that there is a fertilized egg, and it cant implant anyway because the womb lining is being shed. Hmmm…. seems to me I read something where Jesus says Matthew 23:23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cumin, and have left undone the weightier matters of the law: justice, mercy.” We cannot legislate morality. Iran forbids alcohol yet each day the Kurds walk over the snow covered mountains with backpacks full of booze (for $10 a day) and their biggest customers are the mullahs, so they say. Chastity is a good form of birth control. Masturbation is not quite as honorable but it works. Plan B stinks. Anyway… soap box is free. Next!
