I am so bloody tired of people like Melinda Gates who claim to be Catholic and then donate $1B to dump contraceptives on the “poor people” of the world. I am tired of the media who applaud this hypocrite and then blast the Vatican and traditional Catholics for their “out-of-date” views. I am really tired of all the so-called Catholics who laud Gates for her efforts.
What is the reality? The reality is that society has convinced women that it is all right to pour harmful chemicals into their bodies that mess up their natural rhythms, that raise their risk of cancer, that take away any responsibility from the male partner and can create a spontaneous abortion of an embryo. The reality is that these so-called do-gooders have convinced themselves that it is better to spend $160 to $600 a year on the birth control pill or $150 a year on condoms per woman than it is to spend the money on antibiotics, clean water and education. The reality is that it would be a one-time cost of $15 to give a woman a basil thermometer, ask the man AND the woman to abstain together for a time every month and have less of a chance of an unplanned pregnancy. The reality is that we are allowing the world’s wealthiest people (who use almost all the world’s resources) to tell the world’s poorest people that “there are too many of you… stop having babies)!” If you don’t agree, check out this post from a feminist’s perspective who definitely isn’t pro-Catholic.
Thank about it and check out these links. You will notice I tried not to use Catholic sources, just in case you want to accuse this Catholic punk of not being totally honest!
