I agree with her argument, but it would help if her facts were correct.

women can only get pregnant for 2 day a month

It varies but its possible for closer to a week

its assumed condoms are 100% effective at preventing pregnancy

Condoms are 98% effective if used perfectly. Planned Parenthood estimates a real-world effectiveness rate of 85%, while the CDC estimates an 82% effectiveness rate

The pullout method is 96% effective

Its more like 75% effective

Men can't get women pregnant without orgasming

Yes, they can. Its called precum, and it's one of the reasons the pull-out method isn't an effective method of birth control.

Get your facts straight, then come back and make the same argument and I'm totally with you.

No, the egg is only available for fertilization for about 12 hours. The reason it can be up to a week is that is how long sperm can live in the body. (I know this from how much work it took me to get pregnant) Literally, sperm's fault. :)

Agreed. This part freaked me out. 0_o

The amount of time per month that a women is able to get pregnant is much more than 12 hours or 2 days. Sperm can live in the female body for up to 5 days, and since it takes several days for the egg to travel down the Fallopian tubes and arrive at the uterus, you have to add at least 5 days to that number to say how long per month a woman can get pregnant. I reiterate, for most people in most situations, its possible for about a week.

Fascinating. It's not often I agree with a Mormon.

To be pedantic, while I agree with what she wrote her "24 hour soreness" assertion for vasectomy recoveries is incorrect. I was sore for a few weeks, though only in actual moderate pain for about 36 hours. I'm not recommending against the policy she advocates, just clarifying.
