    Excellent article. It points out quite clearly that the rise in contraceptive use matches the rise in abortions, barely preceding the Roe v Wade decision in 1973. Women need to stop swallowing the lies put forth by feminists. These supporters of contraception and abortion obviously hate women, as they want us to be less and less as God intended, as if we are indeed the inferior sex. How, exactly, is that feminist?!
