Give Contraceptives A Rest

The current eruption in right wing media and ministers of the faith concerning use of contraceptives is much ado about nothing. Archbishop Timothy Dolan is furious at the Obama administration for requiring religious institutions to offer those on its medical plans access to contraceptives. Most probably the vast majority of Catholic women use some form of contraceptives and never connect such use to their membership in the  Catholic religion. Honest, they do not think use of contraceptives is akin to what happened in the French Revolution.

One might note to the Archbishop that no one is forcing women to use contraceptives , it is their choice so why complain about “the government.” It is one thing to be concerned about abortion rights another to yell and scream about use of contraceptives. How about lowering the volume on this topic?
