I think few years ago a vegan pill Yasmin(e) came to market. For me(and my husband
hormonal contraception is like a gift from Goddess, cause I have a terrible PMS
. Yeah, I'm gonna find out more about that Yasmin-pill, it was said to be low-hormone and suitable for vegans. I have recently stopped breast-feeding and now it's ok to go on the pill.
Personally I defend very strongly my human right to reproduce. We have decided to have two biological children(if lucky
and then adopt if we want more. I live in the area where are many big families for religious reasons, although they are luckily a minority, but still. So I can somehow relate to what Crystal said about those mothers of ten kids, they look like they were in their 80's in their 50's..Being pregnant and breastfeeding is quite a hard work, and those poor women are doing one or other all the time..
But I am also happy that many couples are deciding not to have kids, like if you're not having any then I can have two
Please do remember that adopting is an expensive and long process, and therefore can hardly become a substitute for " the old way". Thinking about the situation(HIV, teen-pregnancies, illegal abortions, religious reasons not no use condom, old beliefs)in third world countries and some others makes me feel totally powerless and frustrated yet I know it's not my job to find an answer for this problem. I rest my case before I get really upset..
