How do you feel about others in the pro-life movement who are anti-abortion but also anti-birth control?

I believe the battle against the human atrocity of abortion is multi-faceted. There are many ways to reduce abortion, but the horror of abortion will never truly end until all of us adopt a culture of life that makes abortion unthinkable.

Some in the pro-life community oppose birth control because some forms of birth control have abortifacient effects. I am also opposed to these forms of birth control. I do, however, fully support non-abortifacient birth control, to include the emergency contraceptive Plan B.

Others oppose birth control on religious grounds and believe that sex should only occur between a married man and his wife with the full understanding that each and every time intercourse occurs, a child should be expected. I do not agree with this and have stated why in Let It Rain Birth Control.

  1. The problem is, artificial birth control endorses abortion. The two go hand in hand. It is unrealistic to expect that people would actively try and prevent a pregnancy with artificial birth control, but be fine enough to carry it to term once a child is accidentally conceived. There is no culture of life without openness to the possibility of new life. I fully realize how difficult such a demand is, but there seems to be no way around it.
