As a feminist, I believe in the importance of a woman being in control of her reproductive destiny. I wish to teach others the importance of birth control regarding their reproductive choice and the lives of their families. I portend that family planning is highly essential. Planned families are often happier and less stressed families.
Reproductive choices includes abortion and birth control. However, I believe in abortion only in cases of emergencies but prefer the use of birth control. Let me not digress. It is so sad today that many children are unplanned in the United States. This is totally unconscionable in this postmodern day and age of advanced contraceptive technologies.
I strongly contend that children are entitled to live as good a life as they can. Smaller families are often more socioeconomic affluent than larger families. Smaller families are also healthier for the mother and less stress for the father. Larger families, on the other hand, are often impoverished because monies have to be allotted to care for a large number of children.
Besides that children from large families are often in poorer health due to having nonnutririous foods, little or no medical and/or dental care. Large families are also deleterious to the health of the mother. After successive childbirths, the mother's body becomes irreparably damaged. Aside from that, children from large families often lead a disadvantaged life in more ways than one.
I sorely believe that birth control guarantees a better life for all concerned. Since children are our most precious resource, I find it very unconscionable that many children have to do without the most basic amenities because their parents elect to have more children than they are prepared to take care of.
