I Do No Think It Means What You Think It Means

This has to be one of the stupidest comments I've seen on the Internet in a while:

"There has never been a period of human history where abstinence was more effective than a condom. Referring to Abstinence as a Birth Control is like referring to Donald Trump as a Presidential Candidate." --Michael Wolf

Wait...what? Either you don't know the meaning of the word "abstinence," or you don't know where babies come from. "Abstinence" means to abstain. From sex. No sex. So unless you've been touched by an angel or by Zeus disguised as a swan or a shower of light, you can't get pregnant. Hold on, is this some of that Obama Administration math? "Babies created or saved?"

So, contrary to your statement, actually throughout ALL of human history abstinence has been more effective than a condom, in much the same way as, say, abstaining from getting in a car is the most effective way of avoiding unwanted car crashes.
