98% of Catholic Women use contaceptives for a reason. They know they can't raise and provide for a child a year. A woman who had a child every year could produce 38 children or more if some were twins etc. That is from 17 to 45. It could be a lot higher than that if you figure a female can concieve at 12 and many can still concieve into their 50's. However the Catholic hierarchy hangs onto the ages of control by making use of contraceptives a sin. The Bible doesn't say using birth control is a sin. They didn't have contraceptive's when Christ walked the earth or for century's afterward. So where did this sin orginate from? Everyone should read the history of religion. The Church once owned one third of the British Isles. The Church once ran brothels. The Church was amazingly corrupt. The Church mass murdered people. If you didn't bow down and pledge your life to the Church you were a heretic and burned at the stake. This control of the masses is their income and their power. With more children there is more income and more people to control. It doesn't matter to Rome if the people in poor countries live in squallor. It doesn't matter to Rome if you can't feed all your children. So Catholic women have to defy what they have been taught in order to provide and take care of their family. All the people up here angy blogging about religious rights don't get it. How are you going to feed all these people??? How are you going to educate and find work for all these people?? It's been a long time since people were serfs. Do you really want to go back in time? If Catholicism really cared about their flocks (notice the people going to church are part of the flock, like geese) they would have embrace contraceptives from the day that they were available. They did not because it is something that they can use to control the flock. Don't get me wrong Church's do a lot of good. But we have laws that are put in place that are secular. We don't allow polegomy. We don't allow children to get married. We no longer have children working in factories. It's against the law to drink and drive. We as a people approved those laws. And the law that states that employers that provide insurance to their employees have to provide contraception coverage. With exemptions to Churchs but not businesses. So all this flap from the Church is simply because they know their flocks are defying them in using contraceptives. They are losing control. Ask your Bishop if he is prepared to feed, house, educate and take care of millions of people in an over populated earth because the Church doesn't have the good sensce to repeal a victorian rule.
