Always the men

I've asked the question many times. Why are men's voices always the loudest in the 'pro-life' movement? Blondie answers in an excellent post.


Au contraire. The root of the so called "pro-life" movement isn't anti- abortion as much as it is anti-sex and anti-contraception. So we got the picture. The active abortion foes are against sex for pleasure, even among married couples. Would they please get a grip and stay out of consenting adult's bedrooms, for gawdsake? What are they Catholic? Well it seems that they took their position from the Catholic play book.

Imagine my surprise when I read in the NY Time Magazine this article Contra-Contraception which addresses my concern that men in power want women (including married women) to be punished for their wanton acts of lust by birthing unwanted children. It's not Roe they're against, according to the article, but "Griswold v. Connecticut, the 1965 case that had the effect of legalizing contraception" (in the bedrooms of married couples).
