"Free Birth Control Cuts Abortions and Teen Pregnancy"/ U.S. Bishops Should Advocate Free Birth Control to Cut Abortions/ Nuns Right about "Obamacare" Being Effectiive in Preventing Abortions

By Daniel Akst

"A new study from Washington University in St. Louis finds that giving women free contraception sharply reduces abortions and teen pregnancy compared to the general population. Among participants, abortion was less than half as frequent. And the rate of teenage births was 6.3 per 1,000, far less than the national rate of 34.1 per 1,000.
Unlike the general population, most study participants chose implants or IUD devices, suggesting that when initial cost is not a barrier, women are much more likely to pick these highly reliable means of contraception. The study also suggests that the provision of “Obamacare” giving women in workplace health plans access to contraception without co-pays may be effective in reducing unwanted pregnancies."
Bridget Mary's Reflection:
The U.S. bishops should advocate free birth control to cut abortions. Otherwise, how can they be pro-life? The "Nuns on the Bus "were right about "Obamacare"preventing unwanted pregnancies and abortions. Yes, guys, Sisters sometimes do know best!
Another reason we need women priests and women bishops now!

HI Pastor Diane!

I saw you on NBC. You go girl!

Enough of the BS from the Vatican.
There is nothing in the Bible that supports their silly rules on only men serving as priests.

How dare the church give you any wrath?
What is wrong with this picture?

Plenty. They are still currupt hypocrites who abuse the Bible and make up silly rules that are not
even in the Bible!

Jesus said, "Therefore go out and make desciples of the world."

You should be proud of yourself and the work you do for the Lord. The Pope is not God, believe me.

Remember, you serve God -not the Pope who is a poop. He uses the bathroom like the rest of us and is human. He is no more holier than anyone on earth. We are all equal in God's heart.

Don't let them stop you doing what you are called to do as God's servant Diane. Jesus would honor you for that.

Most of the Vatican is afraid of women because they are gay men who don't want to be found out. That is why they have had that silly rule for years and run around in robes hiding their true identity.

Take it from Martin Luther's ancestor here..we'd love you in the ELCA Lutheran church where women are pastors, Catholic, Methodist, Reformed, Episcopal etc. We allow women to serve as Jesus and God intended!

Stand firm and stand for God. Don't let humans who abuse the power of God tell you no or punnish you.

Hugs and much admiration to you Diane!
