I'm not Catholic although I was raised in the church as a child. They believe that it is up to GOD if one gets pregnant or not. Of course they also believe that sex is to be shared between a husband and wife. Personally while I don't agree with abortion, I am fine with birth control. Still I respect the Catholic church for not lowering the bar on their truly held beliefs. So much of society continues to lower its standards in an effort to show "acceptance.". We are soon going to be in a place where nothing's right and nothing's wrong.
