On the Catholic hierarchy’s opposition to the president’s contraception coverage policy, Andrew Sullivan has this to say:
If you really oppose abortion, you should back contraception, especially for those women least likely to afford it outside health insurance plans. But the new rigid fundamentalism of the John Paul II and Benedict XVI hierarchy cannot allow such moral trade-offs. But trading off the rape of children for the reputation of the church? Suddenly they get pragmatic.
I’m sorry but I find the protectors of child rapists preaching to women about contraception to be a moral obscenity.
I really have nothing to add.
