Planned Parenthood's suggestion to me for birth control

I used an online algorithm advertised by Planned Parenthood called "My Method." This is a simple algorithm program that takes user answers to questions and then provides a statement based upon them. The idea is simple. However, this algorithm does not always have an answer. This also means that Planned Parenthood does not always have an answer.

"My Method" was not advertised to me as something that is only meant to be used by women. However, the questions fully expected me to be a woman. I am a man and do not experience menstruation nor do I have a vagina. Planned Parenthood must assume that only women are responsible for birth control? That's a strange proposition. Either that or they think that men have vaginas! Quality improvement, Planned Parenthood! You should have asked what gender I was at the onset of the algorithm.

For the questions assuming that I had female biological characteristics I answered how I knew that my wife would have answered. We are both very pro-life and do not agree with any form of birth control except for abstinence and natural family planning (NFP). I answered these questions with this in mind.

At the end of the algorithm, "My Method" gave me the following message:

My Method cannot determine which birth control methods may be best for you based on your answers to these questions. (1)

The reason that Planned Parenthood cannot provide me with a solution is that abstinence and Natural Family Planning are not a part of their vocabulary. The reason that they believe this is simple: they believe that human beings are incapable of controlling their natural instincts of sexual behavior. They believe that each and every one of us will one day "cave in" to our sexual desires and participate in an unending parade of intercourse with person after person.

Unlike Planned Parenthood, I believe that we humans are capable of more than acting like animals.

Thank you for reading and enjoying my blog. I read a few posts on your own blog and I'm liking it!

I once lost my cool with OC. Then I realized that he was playing me for a fool. After a while I decided to check out his own blog. To my surprise, he has constantly (for many, many years) been very hostile towards all pro-lifers and has suggested violent actions against them (us) numerous times.

You're welcome here at my blog anytime. Thanks Kristen! :)
