Random Thought about Pregnancy/Contraception/Children

There's something that I don't understand about in the pro-Life/pro-Choice debate. Actually, I'm not sure that's quite right, it might be in the pro-Contraception/OMG-Condoms-are-EVIL debate.

Many parents and (essentially) religious figures consistently state that children are great blessings upon those who have them. Many will argue that once conceived and brought into the world, children are the most wonderful gift a person could receive.

So why, exactly, do many on the pro-Life/anti-Contraception side also often imply that pregnancy/childbirth/children are, essentially, a just punishment for having sex? I mean, if children are supposed to be the greatest present God can give a person, aren't they then, logically, an undeserved reward for people engaging in recreational sex?

Because, if they're a just punishment for recreational sex, I'd say that they obviously can't be all they're cracked up to be blessing-wise. I can't quite wrap my head around the idea that it's supposed to work both ways.

Current Mood: curiousbemused

It's probably that children are only a blessing to married opposite gender couples. Otherwise they are judgement from God like Hurricane Katrina and the mine disaster in West Virginia. "Thou evil sinners! God will smite you with death, disaster, and childbirth!" (and yes, lots of sarcasm there)


But you see, that error in logic is only apparent to those with intelligence and common sense. Which explains a great deal about everything else the fundie prolifers say. </snark>
