Use birth control to reduce pregnancy risks

I was appalled by James Battles' letter over a “Why should men determine rights women should have?” He is way off the real subject.

First, I’m pretty sure most babies are never planned — some yes, most no. Women make a choice to give themselves to a man with the risk of getting pregnant when they have sex, married or not, except in the case of rape.

James is clueless when he accuses unwanted children in school as being the disruptive force! I know plenty of disruptive children in schools from regular families. It’s bad parenting, not the fault of the child that was born.

How about lets blame the “me-first” culture in which parents are too self-absorbed in themselves instead of raising their children right?

What if one of those babies who gets aborted was destined to find the cure for cancer, or how about using birth control on both sides to drastically reduce the risk of getting pregnant and having that unwanted child?
