The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Call it a "safety issue"

Last week I brought up the "Guide to Contraception" in the February 2005 issue of Consumer Reports, and noted that you'd have to be a subscriber to read it online, as has been the practice at ConsumerReports.org for some time now.

I have since learned that this is not so. For some reason, this section has been put on the site for free, which I find surprising, and which Annie at After Abortion finds appalling:

Looks like CR has sold out, with an apparent hidden agenda, wanting to propagate their personal ideology and gross misinformation free of charge to the unsuspecting, trusting public. I am incensed.

At the very least, they seem to consider this topic to be at least as important as product recalls, which are generally offered for free on the site.

Linking to this item:

whatever ... Like Annie, I personally find abortion an abhorrent practice (thats why I , a man will never have one) but wonder what all the hoopla is about birth control. I mean I think CR did a public service by putting the information up on the site ... but of course some folks think birth control is tatamount to murder ... the "every sperm is sacred" crowd ... and will do ANYTHING to harp against it ... oh well ... whatever ... :)

IF "every sperm is sacred", why do so many expectorate rather than ingest?
