Staunch anti-choice advocates have floated the idea that hormonal birth control is some form of abortion, or that it was because women had access to birth control in the first place that they now seek abortions because those preventative measures failed.

So, by an extension of their logic, even barrier methods like condoms are a kind of de facto abortion since preventing fertilization is basically aborting a fetus. Really, who can argue with that kind of logic?

Is it too much to hope that the next move toward transparency within the anti-choice movement will be an acknowledgement [sic] that the fuel for their fire is a deep-seated hatred of women, a fear of sexual liberation and a desire to compel pregnancy at all costs?
