On Contraception and Abortion

Been vaguely following the go on Bush's latest version of him being a general twat. And I feel like I need to state that the main purpose for which I use contraception is to prevent pregnancy. For me, that is the purpose of it. And that's why I use it. And I'm not going to shy away from the argument by saying that contraceptives are used for a bunch of other things too. I believe in My Body My Choice and I'll choose, thankyouverymuch.

And aside from that ... preventing something from occurring cannot surely be considered aborting it ... you cannot be sure that every sexual encounter will lead to conception. There is a flaw in his argument. Surely it cannot be considered murder if nothing has been created in order to be killed? He does my head in sometimes and I'm not going to feel bad about choosing the time and the situation that I become a parent.
