"Birth control is evil and a sin. Birth control is anti-baby and anti-child…Why would you stop your own child from being conceived or born? What kind of human being are you?"
That is the latest word from one of the many anti-abortion groups whose influence is rapidly growing across the country. And make no mistake, they are talking about things like the Pill and condoms, and they want to take them away from everyone, including married couples.
Scary? Looney? You bet. But it's a looney, scary movement that cannot be ignored, because they are gathering strength. There was a chilling article about the subject yesterday on TomPaine.com, here.
Fun facts to make one pause- you would think that anti-abortion groups would champion contraception, right? Yet one of the leading anti-abortion groups has started a program to restrict the use of condoms in AIDS-ravaged areas of Africa. Gee, they're real humanitarians, aren't they?
