Judge for yourself. So much could be said in response, but you draw your own conclusions at this point.

  1. I’m afraid I might be missing what you see in the video.

    The unique point I noticed (and appreciated) was its focus on allowing women to not get pregnant in the near future while encouraging long-term reproductive health should they one day choose to get pregnant.

    Was there something else?

  2. I would argue that there is harm to the message

    The ad subtly establishes a viewpoint in which having children is counterproductive to almost every other ambition in life, whether it is home ownership, education, vacation, etc (ironically pregnancy is also shown as an obstacle for starting a relationship rather than the intended byproduct of a relationship).

    If children are counterproductive to all of these inherently good ambitions then it would be a natural response to put off having children until all of our goals with ***more merit*** are fulfilled (light sarcasm there).

    • Couldn’t agree more, Ian. Congratulations on your recent marriage. May God bless you in every way, and should it be His will, with children.
