    Crazy Idea

    My wife is kind of a lunatic, I love her to death but its true. She hates everything in a minivan, religions, etc ... on and on. Last night she was like "I wish they put something in the water or something where everyone was automatically on birth control. It wouldn't be permanent, like you could take a pill or something if you were trying to get pregnant that would cancel out the BC. There would be no unplanned pregnancies, no kids born to parents that didnt want them, basically no abortion, etc..." Obviously this would never fly because of like freedom and rights and all that BS. But I still thought it was almost borderline a good idea. Thoughts?

    Real medicine always has side effects. I don't think we need to subject 5-year-olds and 70-year-olds to those effects in order for womento have birth control.

    Well this is an in theory type of thing, like has the same side effects of flouride in the water. I mean there are some side effects but in theory the benefits outweigh them. I'm all for it. In theory obviously.

    At the age of 10, all females should have to get a birth control implant that is then changed as needed every few years until high school graduation, entering the military, finding a full-time job, or getting married. Or something. All males must graduate high school, and if they don't, enter the military. Or something.

    I'm all for that as long as I dont have to follow it. I'm getting my daughter BC as soon as possible also, better to be safe than sorry.

    Flouride benefits everyone who drinks it. Birth control medicine would not, unless there are other effects as well.

    Forced birth control sounds like we want to chemical erase moral responsibility about sex.
    Build a man a fire; keep him warm for a day. Light a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of this life.

    Repeating the same actions and expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

    Moral responsibility went out the window about a decade ago.

    i wish they would build gas station type underground gas tanks in neighborhoods/communities and then run pipes to people's houses.
    set up some type of pay system. boom. imagine having a gas pump in ur garage.
    no more easier/efficient way to get gas unless ur scarfing down some taco bell.

    Playing Devils advocate. How would it not help everyone? Who would it hurt? Those people trying to have 1,000 kids? They can take the "pill" and become fertile again.

    Also Nazis used flouride to pacify people in concentration camps, obviously in much larger quantities but still, there are a lot of people who are not as sold on flouride as others. If people just brushed their god damn teeth would we need flouride in tap water?

    I wish the government would just put pain pills in our water. That way no one would feel any pain ever.
