You can say that again.

My son recently called and said that his wife is pregnant. She was also on birth control pills. However, she appears to be one of the 5% for which "the pill" fails to prevent pregnancy.

The same thing happened between me and my first wife while she was on the pill, and then earlier while using condoms. Two failures. Two (unplanned) pregnancies.

The ONLY "safe" sex is either no sex or sex within marriage... PERIOD!!!

If I may offer a friendly amendment - "within a stable godly marriage". In marriage 1 - which was neither though both were as the world counts it committed [and should have been? Sorry, could not resist, by no means THAT bad] - pregnancy would NOT have been safe fopr any concerned.
