I’m not going to bore everyone and mention how much of this article I find to be, for lack of a nicer word, moronic. Instead, I’m going to ask a question about part of it.

So, what exactly were these women expecting to happen when they underwent this procedure that (to my knowledge) has the sole purpose of sterilization? They regret becoming infertile because they lose their fertility? What?
Come on, Matt. Don’t you know that a truly meaningful existence for any woman is directly tied to her ability to bear children? I mean, we can’t very well let these women make decisions about their own bodies when we all know that someday they will see that heavenly light and realize their one true calling is to exacerbate the world’s already massive overpopulation. Homeless children the world-over needing homes? Fuck that. Lets hate on women who believe their lives are better suited for other avenues of interest that don’t include motherhood.
People are willing to suspend their disbelief if it’s convenient.
And in ten words you’ve managed to sum up one of the most glaring and hypocritical issues within religion. Well done, sir.
Regardless, my favorite part of this blog by far has been the comment that “Contraception makes a woman into an object. When a woman’s fertility is seen as a bad thing, then the whole person is not respected. The woman is then turned into an object to be used for mere pleasure. Pope Paul VI predicted this outcome in his encyclical Humanae Vitae.”
You know what objectifies women? Telling them their only use is making babies. You know what doesn’t objectify women? Letting them possess and acknowledge their sexuality. You can tell that a male wrote that because they completely disregard that contraception works against male fertility as well. Why is it that a woman is turned into an object and men are inherently the ones capitalizing on their objectification? It’s just as valid to assert that a woman can use her sexuality to objectify a man, but if they pointed it out they would have talked themselves in a circle and their reason would contradict itself. Also, giving women the power to objectify men is an overall terrifying thought, and we can’t have any of that, can we?
Flawless. I mean, really, I knew you were a pretty swell guy before but this is just pure quality.
