What has contraception done to men?
Yesterday we had a lovely experience as a two ladies stopped their car where we were praying and lowered the window. I went over and the driver asked "Is this about abortion?" I explained that we were praying for an end to abortion. She said: "I'm pregnant and I don't agree with abortion. The child should not pay for my mistakes. Thank you for what you are doing." Naturally I expressed delight and asked if she needed any help and, particularly, if she had approached the Marquette Care Clinic which is right next door to Planned Parenthood where we are praying. She said that, yes, she had already visited the Care Clinic for help and support.
So, that was a nice positive event.
On the other hand, a car load of young men wound their car windows down and shouted abuse at us. It should be noted that the sidewalk (pavement for my English readers) prayer group consisted of five women plus me. There were two other young women standing near the back entrance to Planned Parenthood. What has become of men when they can shout abuse at nice ladies standing and praying by the roadside? Do the women they use realise what monsters they are getting into bed with and how little respect they have for them?
Contraception has made men into beasts and women into means of gratification. See comment from Genty.
