    also refers to many anti-abortionists attitudes about sex itself.  I come from the Roman Catholic tradition, and the reason they are anti-contraception, and anti-abortion is that it makes sex more consequence free.  If you want to engage in sex, then, by golly, you have the obligation to accept a baby in return, no questions.  The crime is sex (don't kid yourself, that's how they see it), and the time is 9 months of pregnancy followed by a mouth to feed.  They are not prolife as they really don't care about the child excepts as a penalty for the crime, or sin.  Contraception and abortion removes the penalty and that is what makes the moralists so mad.  The misogyny and misanthropy of their stance is really quite stark and stunning.
