Just In Case You Were Unsure

The Pro-Life movement is not just about abortion. It is about establishing a legal fundamentalist Christian/Catholic sexual ethic.
If that premise [that God is always described in Scripture as the sole procreative decision-maker] is true, who has the right to say no to God? Who can say they have a better grip on timing than God? Pro-aborts are right. Contraception is next issue after abortion. And pro-lifers must work it through.

There was a really interesting article in the Atlantic last week about what would happen if Roe v. Wade actually did fall. Oddly enough, it predicted that it would be one of the best things that could happen to the Democratic party, for various reasons. It's a long article, but definitely worth the read.

I have seen many a patient who was using birth control who nevertheless found herself pregnant and in a genetic counseling session with me. This includes a woman who had her tubes tied 13 years previously, a handful of women with IUDs, and many women on the patch or oral contraceptive. I feel like for those who believe, this would show that it was 'God's way of giving that family a baby even though they were trying to get in the way of The Plan". Isn't the fact that no birth control method is 100% effective God's loophole? Shouldn't this satisfy Catholics? I mean, if God wants a life to be created, a little pill or prophylactic is NOT going to stand in the way, right??
