A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

Life Issues

"33 states have made it more difficult or more expensive for poor women and teens to access contraceptives and related medical services. They cut funds for family planning, enacted laws restricting access to birth control and placed tight controls on sex education."

This from a recent report by the Guttmacher Institute. Those states which have more barriers to birth control are also the states with some of the more restrictive laws against abortion. Again, if you are concerned about the latter, why the campaign against birth control?

And as Iraq teeters on the brink of civil war, I think it would be interesting to compare the statements of the Nat'l Council of Churches versus the Institute on Religion and Democracy to see which group had a more accurate assessment of the dangers of going into Iraq.
