Go read this

Mrs Coulter, over at Republic of Heaven, has things to say about last Sunday's piece in the NYTimes about the war on contraception. She's got it right: women's control over their fertility equals women's advancement in society. I'd add that the Pill was developed by a believing Roman Catholic, and that those who believe in God might consider that there's a reason He/She/They gave us brains. Not to mention other organs.*

*yes, we've done a lot of harm with those brains, but we shouldn't give up on them. We are not, for good or ill, animals, and as such we alter our "nature" all the time. If we were to use "nature" as gold-standard for what God intended, we wouldn't be reading, either. Or for that matter blogging, but perhaps we shouldn't go there.
