There's an alarmingly high statistic floating around CafeMom of late:

Forty-two percent of women claim they would lie about contraception in order to get pregnant, regardless of the wishes of their partners.

In other words, women so desperately want a baby that they tell their partners are on birth control when, really, they aren't.

Most CafeMoms say they are not part of this 42 percent. In fact, they think this statistic is way too high...take our anonymous poll, then tell us what you think about the topic...

The statistic is actually from an study done a few years ago in the United Kingdom. But it's getting more attention recently now that a male birth control pill is being developed.

My opinion? Of course, there are women who lie to their partners in order to get pregnant. (And whether or not this is the right thing to do is not for me to decide.) But I'm wondering if this number have been inflated in order to convince men that because women are so untrustworthy and baby-obsessed they should definitely take (read: buy) the male birth control pill in order to "protect" themselves.

Agree? Disagree? Do you think a lot of women lie about birth control in order to get pregnant?
