DeirdreS: @kellyosullivan She’s young, there may actually be hope that something gets through and one day she’ll understand.

DeirdreS: @asheschow So I’m asking: in this context (preventing pregnancy), what exactly does “personal responsibility” mean?

2012-09-05 23:02:24

DeirdreS: @asheschow “you’re missing a key point: that birth control is not a necessity to control family size. It’s called personal responsibility”

2012-09-05 23:01:11

DeirdreS: @asheschow You have said “personal responsibility” several times, but haven’t defined it as an actual form of birth control.

2012-09-05 22:59:52
