Dear friends,

THANK YOU for your terrific comments about my recent post, “Birth Control, Religion, and Ethical Issues,” both here on the blog and on Facebook. I am so glad to see such passion around this issue.

What I attempted to do with this piece was to bring you behind the closed doors of my office and ask what you would do. In a culture where our children are over sexualized, sold sex, and “trained” to be sexually active at early ages, we have serious problems on our hands. I encourage each one of you who wrote to be engaged in your community and school about what is being taught to our kids because, as we know, birth control is NOT the answer. Teaching our kids that sex is wonderful and should be delayed until marriage is the only healthy answer.

Many of you disagree about the role of oral contraceptives, and I appreciate this. Many in the Catholic medical community disagree on some points. But the most important thing that we must do is to stick together, regardless of some of these disagreements, and promote abstinence to our kids because we can all agree that this is the only answer. Keep the conversations going.
