Condoms and Abortion


Related image

This may not be a new thought, but it is new to me.  While pondering how people who are passionately against other people getting abortions and exert a great deal of energy in trying to bring their views to be the law of the land, I had  revelation.  It was not mystical, but hugely practical and seemed  to me to be something I should share with the world at large.  I am poking fun at myself here;  I have, perhaps, a handful of regular readers of my blog and another handful on Facebook!

Anyway, I realized that abortion is the result of both a woman and a man making poor birth control choices.  People who are vehemently against abortion focus entirely on women.  They feel women should carry their embryos to term despite there often being no man in the picture to help provide financially or as a father.  Underneath this belief may be another unfair belief or attitude.  It is blaming the woman’s undesired pregnancy entirely upon the woman.  A “you got yourself into this predicament, now you have to pay the price” manner of thinking.

But, as my revelation continued to reveal itself to me, I began to realize that it takes both a woman and a man to bring about the continuation of the human race!  And… wait for it…. men could be proactive in helping to prevent abortions by WEARING CONDOMS!  Stop these pregnancies at the source!  I envision advertising campaigns of a huge scale produced by hitherto anti-abortionists!  Billboards, television commercials,  even church signs (with their usual thought-provoking sentiments) would fill our country with this profoundly and utterly new wave of thinking!  Anti-Abortionists would team up with Planned Parenthood to get the word out and  supply the nation with condoms!  Condom manufacturers would tout all the benefits of condoms.  “They prevent pregnancy a lot of the time!”  “They protect users against sexual diseases!”  “They come in different colors!”

In time, fashion designers would get in on the craze and manufacture high-end, expensive condoms.  Magazines, splashed with the faces of the rich and famous, would have in-depth stories of what brand of condom Kim Kardashian likes her man to wear.  Condoms would become cool.  They would become fun.  They would become status symbols!  I think that some of the most popular ones would have emojis on them.

Additionally, they would be available in so many sizes and textures and materials that men would stop saying that they inhibit sexual pleasure.  Instead,  they would be touting how they improve performance and how easy they are to carry in one’s pocket.  How they make you sexier to ladies and can be printed with your name and number and be given out like business cards at  bars.

So, are you with me?  Do you want to see this dream of unity across our nation realized?  There would be so much money to be made from it that success would be easy.   Condom manufacturers need only to consult PR firms now.  I am going to start my own little grassroots movement.  I’ll have some bumper stickers printed that say “America!  A condom in every pot!”.  Patriotism is a big seller.  Then, I will tape  a line of condoms on my bumper to wave proudly.  Won’t you join me?

Tell Me Again … — Filosofa’s Word


Tell me again, Donald Trump, why we should fear Latino or Muslim immigrants, when just a few hours ago yet another white male, natural-born citizen, went on a shooting spree, this time in Odessa, Texas, killing at least five people and injuring at least twenty-one? Tell me again, Republicans, why we cannot ban assault weapons […]
