Mere Pleasure

I do love when anti-choicers show their hand. I love it when they prove that this is all about sex.

As reported by Right Wing Watch, Dr. Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society said this

“Planned Parenthood from the top to the bottom is a corrupt organization,” Miller told Ave Maria Radio’s Teresa Tomeo, “corrupt in its view of the sanctity of human life and corrupt in its view of human sexuality. And I say even if Planned Parenthood didn’t perform one single abortion, just the mere fact that its sexual ethic is corrupted means right there, should be the reason right there, that they should not receive any federal money. The kind of sexual ethic that Planned Parenthood promotes is sex for recreation, sex for mere pleasure.” 

"Mere pleasure." Let that sink in.

What else would sex be for? Procreation, I guess. But even the Catholic Church recognizes the "unitive" nature of sex and how infertile humans are compared to other animals.

What is going through her head? Even if she's quiverfull, she has to have had sex far more times than she has children. Does she hate it? Is she asexual?

Sex for pleasure (and it is NOT mere!) is the default condition of humans, even in the absence of contraception. This ideology of sneering at pleasure is not normal. It's a very sick way to look at things, and I don't even think most religious people are as messed up as this about it. She betrays her reason for being in the anti-choice movement.
