Hi, all. I was thinking today, as a staunchly pro-choice woman, I always wanted to know what the religious people felt about barrier-method birth control.
DISCLAIMER: I’m going to be speaking in mostly Judeo-Christian terms, since that is what I have the most exposure to. Here’s what I get so far:
1) The religious folks don’t want non-married peoples to have sex.
2) The teens of those are doing rather unsafe non-p-in-v things.
3) The religious peeps are staunchly anti-abortion (understandable) but also anti hormonal birthcontrol (i.e., the pill, the patch, the implant, Mirena, Plan B)
…so how do they feel about barrier methods? Condoms, Copper IUDs, diaphragms, etc. For the sake of argument, let’s say this is in the context of a God-sanctioned marriage.
