Birth control isn't always easy to get. I don't want children. I know I don't want children. I'm a borderline phobic of children, and actually break out in hives from having to spend time with them. I am not at an age where they will consider tying my tubes, and will not be for many years. Furthermore, I am one of those broke people who shouldn't be having kids.

I went on the pill, and made my friend with benefits use a condom every single time. I still got pregnant. That pregnancy ended in a miscarriage. Clearly, those methods weren't working.

Without insurence, though, I can't afford the exam or to have an IUD implanted, or one of the arm implants or shots. So I"m stuck going the next decade without sex which I do not want to do, or risking another unwanted pregnancy.

But I see something bigger here, at least in the US. Women have fought very, very hard to get reproductive rights, and this is part of it. Women have fought for hte right to not have someone else tell them that they must carry a baby to term and have it. Well, the flip side of that is no one can tell another woman that she can not have a child, whether it is a wise choice to do so or not.

The solution? Don't know. More readily available birth control, including surgical sterilization for those who want it? That would help, but is is enough?
