"I do, however, believe that birth control should be and should remain legal, and I think conflating it with abortion does the pro-life movement a huge disservice."
you don't have to be a scientist to know the difference between birth control and abortion.
"birth control" : NFP, condoms, vasectomy, tubal ligation, spermicide, sponge.....
abortificants: hormonal pills, shots, and patches, IUDS
the pro-life movement is exactly that - pro-life.
When there are practices that result in the death of human beings it is necessarily a "pro-life" issue.
Well, I guess I'm not pro-life enough for Free Republic. Conflating IUDs and hormonal pills with the movement to ban abortion will assure one thing: failure of the movement.
