Contraception: the consequences are more expensive

Catholic World News - August 26, 2011

The Obama administration has sometimes hinted that federal funding for contraception is a wise expenditure because it cuts down the number of babies born into poor households who will need government support. Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi made that reasoning explicit, claiming that expenditures on contraceptives will be a net savings for the government.

Carolyn Moynihan disagrees, pointing out that the widespread use of contraceptives has brought a host of destructive side effects, which are far more damaging and costly to society in the long run.
