    Which reveals the "no birth control pill" ploy for exactly what it is....a way to control women, both sexually and economically.

    No pill, no having sex without the risk of pregnancy. No pill, no being able to decide for yourself if you have a child or not.  If you have sex, you may have a child and that can put the kibosh on schooling, jobs, any way to support yourself on your own.  So we are back to having to rely on men for support, which  implies control...which is exactly what these people want.  The patricarchy rule....women must depend on men to support them and their children, and men therefore can control women.

    I think the position of the Catholic church is more that the pill may "thwart" God's plan for a woman to become pregnant, though ironically, the Church-supported "rhythm" method is designed to do exactly the same thing. It just doesn't do it very well.

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