Birth Control doesn't stop pregnancy - pill swallowers do!

After reading the "guns don't kill people" I thought of an interesting parallel.

Absent those rare situations where a house is struck by lightning, and a rifle resting in the corner of the room receives the electric charge and fires, and the bullet ricochets and strikes an unfortunate resident, I agree that guns very seldom kill on their own. But they sure do make one's work easier if the intent is to kill someone.

So consider this: it's not birth control pills that prohibit pregnancy -- it's the women who swallow the pills. So what's with all the uproar about these innocent pills? A birth control pill has never, as far as my research has shown, inhibited a pregnancy unaided by a human. So let's lay off 'em already.

Give pills a chance.

Shoot the women! It was ZaZa's solution for abortion in the BirdCage.

I like the spirit of your comparison, but I don't think it works. Along with the situations you listed where guns go off by themselves, I've heard of a dog stepping on a hunters gun and injuring the hunter. I don't know if one has actually been killed.

Birth control pills, unless they are accidentally ingested, or force fed wouldn't be comparable.

How about blaming gun manufacturers and pharma companies? They are people too.

RE: Equal time

Birth control pills aren't the only thing that prevents pregnancy, condoms do too.

One of the republicans at their CPAC meeting has this under control. He said: "We Will Fight the Condoms on the Beaches"

So, what is the general point, here? That banning everything with even the slightest chance that something may go wrong will protect us all?

We should begin immediate campaigns against anything heavy, sharp, pointy... and let's not forget water, because drowning is a danger... cleaning supplies and other chemical mixtures because of fumes or burns... anything we could choke on, including food... where does it end?

We can't legislate against stupidity and lack of common sense used by persons who simply don't think before acting.

We can't lock every human being in a soft cage with no edges or corners, and deprive people of living because of a long list of "what ifs". It's not logical.

Some accidents are bound to happen, which is why we call them accidents in the first place. But when inanimate objects are used as directed, with a little care and forethought... what's the problem?
