Did anyone catch Nightline the other night? The guests were the Bates family from Tennessee. They have 18 kids and are still working on more! They're a wonderful family with great kids and they're (obviously) open to life!
At one point they were chatting about the mother, Kelly, having had a couple of recent miscarriages and how the doctor had put her on progesterone during her next pregnancy in the hopes of saving the baby. I was appalled and taken aback by the interviewer's next question. She asked, "If you don't believe in birth control to avoid a pregnancy, why is it OK to take medicine to help a pregnancy along?"
Ok...my jaw dropped at this point. I jumped my DVR backwards several times to make sure I heard it correctly. Is this just complete ignorance by the liberal media or was she trying to get a point across? I'm not sure if she truly could not see the difference here, or if she was trying to "educate" us right-wing religious freaks out here in the audience. It almost seemed like she was looking for a "gotcha" moment. Either way, it was not only insulting to Kelly, but it was an apples-to-oranges comparison!
Naturally, Kelly answered the question more than gracefully and explained that it's completely different to do something artificial to avoid creating a life, than it is to use means to sustain a life that already exists. Brilliant! And, might I add...DUH.
Anyone else happen to catch that?
