i think birth control is good for todays age because people are stupid and think its okay to be pregnant at 15

First, let"s understand how birth control pills work in your body.

Typically, your body ovulates once a month, ripening a new egg that will then journey down a fallopian tube. Eventually it reaches the uterus, where it would implant, if fertilized.

If not fertilized by a sperm, then the lining of the uterus that had built up in preparation for the fertilized egg is unnecessary. Both egg and uterine lining leave your body, cleansing your system and preparing for a new month.

When you take birth control pills, you impose synthetic hormones on your natural cycle.

Many birth control pills contain high levels of estrogen that effectively convince your pituitary gland that you are pregnant (this explains some of the side effects of the drugs) and that you don"t need to ovulate. Because your body thinks you are pregnant, the uterine lining thickens. Once you start the placebo pills, however, your estrogen level drops suddenly, and your body menstruates "normally."

This abnormal cycle is what millions of women experience every month, and yet few doctors discuss the consequences of taking these prescriptions for year after year.

Shelrod. My grandmother was married at 15. Had 10 kids to the same man. The difference is we are now in a selfish,and irresponsible society.The " if it feels good , do it," culture of the 60's has taken hold of our young people. A lot of young people today think it is alright to kill babies before they are born. And they look down on a girl who chooses children as a career.

And how do you get that there is a population problem. You could fly over America and what you would see is wide open spaces. With cities few and far between. You could give every person on this planet a few acres of land and they would not even fill up the state of Texas.We are not running out of resources. Just the will to use them by the liberal left.

You sound like you have not lived long enough to think for yourself about these things.
