    (a) go into the voting booth and vote Democratic, without mentioning that inconvenient fact at home. (Fortunately, he probably doesn't ask her or try to discuss politics with her, thinking she wouldn't understand the fine points the way he does.)
    (b) are quite willing to bring their daughters, or even themselves, to Planned Parenthood or the local feminist health center when an inconvenient pregnancy occurs -- just don't tell their husbands. Seriously, I had a good friend who worked at a clinic, and she knew. Catholics, conservative Protestants, Episcopalians, you name it, she saw mom and daughter come in, and goodness knows where mom was pulling the money out of, but mom knew that the pregnancy was not a good idea and cared about her daughter more than some abstract right-wing ideology.
