Imagine if there were a conference of nuns deciding whether men should have
access to viagra, or PSA tests.....
I can totally understand why a church or anyone else with a shred of decency
would be against abortion. I can't see however why anyone would be against
birth control.I can't see why the ussue birth control would be
seen as more wrong than child sexual abuse. Take a deep breath, get your
bearings, think about what you are doing. Why is this issue so important?
I worked in a Catholic hospital for 12 yrs that provided coverage for birth
control. Catholic hospitals employ non-Catholics and serve non-Catholics. The
Bishops and the Catholic Church are wrong, wrong, wrong on this issue, as they
were on the issue of protecting children from abuse.
I find it ironic that those most opposed to abortion are also opposed to birth
You know what helps prevent abortions? Birth control:
’Teen pregnancy, abortion rates at record low’ – By James
Kelleher – Reuters – 02/08/12 ‘Chicago –

use of contraceptives sent the overall teen pregnancy rate to it’s lowest
level since at least 1972, a study showed Wednesday.’ – article
The current proposal strikes the correct balance among the parties. The
Catholic hierarchy, on the other hand, is trying to impose its dogma and beliefs
on people who do not accept Catholic beliefs. Their Talabanic attempt to compel
religious practices should not be acceptable or accepted. Approve the
President's proposal -- it works equitably for everyone.
Just from my perspective as a "Inquiring Mind Wants To Know" why
celibate men in their ministry so concern about birth control.
