Really? Then why did you just use one: “I’ve known a multitude of Protestants who don’t fit your storyline.”

Make up your mind. Do they matter or not? If they don’t matter, then don’t use them. If they do matter, then fine, they matter. In either case, no one knows a multitude of Protestants who believe contraception to be a moral evil - because no such “multitude” exists - and no one knows of a single sizable Protestant sect that teaches contraception is a moral evil - because no such sect exists.

Protestant sects of any notable size have made their choice: they are squarely in the pro-contraception, and by default, pro-choice under certain circumstances corner. Period. That may change, but it will change only when Protestants rediscover Natural Law and Church History. I think that may be happening now, but we’ll have to wait and see.

A bizarre, baseless claim. Any Christian who does not accept your pope is Protestant by definition. That includes quite a broad swath of ardently pro-life people, who do not participate in any "denomination." As far as sects, I take it you are unfamiliar with Baptists. Or Pentecostals.

And, magesterium aside, there seems to be quite the heated debate ongoing, pertaining to abortion, within the Catholic church hierarchy, let alone the laity. And yet you suppose that these same people are declining to advocate use of other birth control methods?

So, what was your point, beyond mere partisan cheerleading?
