Why are people saying taking birth control is the same as abortion?

Ohio is trying to ban birth control because supposedly in their eyes it’s the same as abortions. What is wrong with people?

    In the 2012 election, every Republican candidate came out strongly against the Morning After Pill, saying they wanted to ban it. What it does is to keep a fertilized egg from implanting on the uterine wall and beginning to develop. To Pro Lifers, that fertilized egg is a 'fetus' So they called it The Abortion Pill.

    The fact is, the Morning After Pill (aka 'Plan B'), is just hormonal birth control. Any woman on the pill, the pill will occasionally keep a fertilized egg from implanting, which Pro Lifers see as 'abortion'.

    Every candidate in 2012 was asked 'If you want to ban the Morning After Pill, are you also against other forms of hormonal birth control?' And they all pretended they didn't hear the question and changed the subject. Finally Rick Santorum said yes, we should ban birth control, because it leads to 'bad things'. (Like . . . sex?)

    If you consider a fertilized egg, a single cell with no brain or heart or other organs, no personality or brain wave activity, a PERSON, then yes, birth control is the same as an abortion! I think that's a ridiculous belief, and apparently more Americans, even more Republicans, are on my side.

    If it weren't for birth control and abortion, Donald Trump would have dozens of children from dozens of women. There'd be dozens of Donald Jr.s and dozens of Eric Trumps .

    Thank God for birth control and abortion

    Let's get right down to it... The population of white people in the United States is decreasing. White people just aren't having as many children as they used to, and within the next hundred years, Caucasians may very well become a minority. For hard-right Republicans there could be no worse case scenario.

    So they want to do all they can to prohibit white women from taking charge of their own bodies. They want them in the bedroom, keeping the race going by popping 'em out like their grandparents used to. Attacking abortion is not enough for them. Give it another decade, and they'll be going after condoms too.

      Super, but wtf does Japan have to do with the US, unless your solution is simply to prohibit non-whites from immigrating?

    Smarty pants is mostly right. Fertilized eggs are "life" created, and that's what some people have an issue with destroying. I'm not a religious person, but I do believe that life begins at conception. "It" exists as a unique individual ...even at mere seconds old.

    The question, to me ...is what obligation to we have to "host" a living being who is incapable of sustaining existence on their own.

      The answer is yes, you do, if you've created it.

    Depends on how you define as when life begins. If life is defined as when the sperm enters the egg then birth control is abortion because it prevents the fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus so the egg can’t become a living being.

    • Regardless, birth control does not “murder” any babies, if anything it prevents that sort of thing from happening. Banning birth control or making it very hard to obtain will only result in more unwanted pregnancy and thus more abortions.
