    Birth control gives women the power to decide for themselves when and if they have children. It also allows them to have sex without the "consequence" of getting pregnant.

    Which violates a core principle of these people...that women should be kept, in the classic phrase "barefoot and pregnant." In other words, having NO choice of livelihood but marriage and childbearing, with all that implies, including being the exclusive sexual property of one man.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
