98%of sexually active Cathloic women use birth control
"The nonpartisan Guttmacher Institute, which tracks reproductive health in America, reported last year that 98 percent of sexually active Catholic women have used some form of contraception. That figure is not a misprint, and church leaders never mention it. Not even Rick Santorum - who lectures us that sex is moral only in the making of babies - has bothered to dispute it.
Republicans may want to splash their faces with this cold water: In the newly released New York Times/CBS News poll, when Catholics were asked whether they "support or oppose a recent federal requirement that private health insurance plans cover the full cost of birth control for their female patients," 67 percent voiced support and only 25 percent voiced opposition. They were in sync with swing-voting independents (64-26) and women in general (72-20). And when Catholics were asked, more specifically, whether such a requirement should apply to religiously affiliated hospitals and universities, 57 percent said yes and only 36 percent said no.
That sentiment should not be a surprise, given the realities of life that have been overlooked in the current uproar. The largest Catholic college in America, DePaul University, routinely offers birth control coverage among its employee benefits. So does Marquette University, in accordance with Wisconsin law. Indeed, 28 states already require that insurance companies cover birth control for all employers; some of those states don't exempt any religious employers, not even churches."
So your point is? A government can't force a religion to change it's views for politics, whether you or it's members think so or not, the religions leaders make that decision. Last I remember birth control is provided at every drug store, some bar bathrooms, and grocery stores, the catholic church doesn't want a ban, they just don't want to be told they must provide something they are against. Should catholic hospitals provide abortions?
The "point" of this post was that 98% of sexually active Catholic women use birth control. It was a political post, making a point that the GOP is not doing itself any......oh wtf. If you can't understand a post, then maybe you shouldn't comment on it?
