    The Catholic Church is opposed to contraception for moral reasons.

    Where is the morality in creating a life when food and clean water are rare commodities? Where poverty exists and educational opportunities are non existent?

    Where is the morality when disease is spread?

    Where is the morality when a women is the victim of domestic violence? When a women is forced to conceive and then trapped as the child become a lever to gain more power and more control?

    I am with you.

    If you cant feed, house and take care of a baby you have no business having one.

    i find it much more interesting that the religious right pushes for abortion to become illegal, because life is sacred, while at the same time opposing universal health care.

    its extremely hypocritical to say life is sacred when your willing to fight to protect an unborn life, but not willing to fight to protect people who have already been born.

    when you force women to have children they may not want, in many cases they become dependent on the state for services such as medicaid, food stamp, welfare, the foster system, etc etc.

    Yup, if you can't provide for the child don't have it.

    There isn't any but keep in mind that there is a section of the Catholic Church that believes suffering is an essential component in finding absolution. According to them that's all irrelevant because children born to those circumstances would have the opportunity to experience suffering and through it have a greater chance of finding God. Or so they say at least.

    And I thought this was a thread to actually discuss contraception. Imagine my surprise when I found out it was another extreme political stunt.....

    Not in this country they are not. The church is a global institution.... or have you missed the catholic charities commercials with the starving children in third world countries with no water, food, shelter or education?
