Department of Icy Timelessness

Reading another story about frozen embryos made me wonder a few more things about the current state of reproductive affairs.
For instance, how many pastors realize, when they look out on their congregations, that every woman there who has a child has lain in her hospital bed after giving birth and been told by a nurse what kind of birth control to use?
How many pastors realize that every woman -- as a matter of course -- who has more than 2 children has, within 24 hours of giving birth, been advised by her doctor that she can come back in 6 weeks (scheduled NOW) and have her tubes tied?
At the most physically and emotionally vulnerable point she may ever experience, a woman is faced with these difficult moral questions. What wisdom can she draw on?
Think about it.
