I’ve often wondered why American religious conservatives are so hung up on sex. Contra-Contraception explores some of the issues. The article also helped clarify a problem that has been circling around the edge of my consciousness for a few years. Why are European pregnancy and abortion rates so much lower than those in America? By the end of the article, I had my answer; Europe is a collection of secular nations. Unlike in America, religion does not get to influence the message. So, if I follow my twisted logic to its natural conclusion, conservative religious fundamentalists actually contribute to increased abortion rates.
