If a woman is having unprotected sex, should she not assume she may get pregnant?
It is not that uncommon for women (or men) to have sex without making any assumptions (possibly they are too drunk, or just carried away by the moment, and suddenly realise the situation the morning after).It is also possible that she thought she took precautions, but they turned out to be inadequate.The problem is that the more you take control away from people (whether of their diet, or of anything else), then you also take responsibility away from them. The problem with the nanny state, aside from the removal of personal choice, is that it leads to a complacency (if not deliberate risk taking behaviour) simply because it is assumed that it is the state's responsibility to look after you, and your family (because that is the responsibility they have taken upon themselves), so you no longer feel you have either the control or the responsibility to do anything about it yourself.
Yes, all perfectly true; and people should stick to the speed limit. Here in the UK it's technically illegal to have a car accident except due to unexpected mechanical failure or sudden ill health etc. That should mean we don't need speed limits or a rule requiring seat belts. People are human. Humanity does lots of things to reduce the harm done by stupidity because Humanity knows it's often stupid. This is just another example.
