Department of Icy Timelessness

By Antigone (articles ) | May 10, 2003

Reading another story about frozen embryos made me wonder a few more things about the current state of reproductive affairs.

For instance, how many pastors realize, when they look out on their congregations, that every woman there who has a child has lain in her hospital bed after giving birth and been told by a nurse what kind of birth control to use?

How many pastors realize that every woman -- as a matter of course -- who has more than 2 children has, within 24 hours of giving birth, been advised by her doctor that she can come back in 6 weeks (scheduled NOW) and have her tubes tied?

At the most physically and emotionally vulnerable point she may ever experience, a woman is faced with these difficult moral questions. What wisdom can she draw on?

Think about it.
