CONTRACEPTION AND MODERN WOMEN: the morals of reproduction and morals generally.
Until 1930, every branch of the Christian Church opposed contraception.
The Anglican Church was the first to declare contraception permissible under certain circumstances.
Now all non-Catholic denominations seem to say more or less the same.

The results in terms of disrespect for marriage, disrespect for women and children and disregard for personal morality are obvious.
One leader of the US Baptist denomination, Dr Albert Mohler, has written that since the year dot, no development has had a greater impact on human beings than the development of the Pill . . . .
Is that right? Or is it too superficial?
Truer, perhaps, to say that no development has had greater effect on human beings than the Protestant Reformation.
And that one disastrous effect of the Reformation is the Pill.
The Pill won’t go away until all followers of Christ disown the Reformation.

P.S. Are there Reformation-friendly, Pill-friendly semi-Catholics, some occupying powerful positions in the Catholic Church – as bishops, Catholic Education Committees etc.?
If so, they may need replacement.
